I’m sure I mention this before Sebald is a writer whom I feel brought me back into lit about 15 years ago but more so than that increased my love of translation .I know since then some other books by him are considered better but for me this is as near perfection as you can get digressive ,informative , challenging and truly unique .I recently caught the film of the book in a way after Sebald a Sort of homage of this book and what made it so great . What is your book ?

    I really have to read Sebald. I know I have one of his books on my shelf….Now I’m going into the other room to see which one it is! You always have good recommendations, Stu.
