Editorial Reviews

Review

“Sebald has done what every writer dreams of doing. The Rings of Saturn glows with the radiance and resilience of the human spirit.”
- Roberta Silman, The New York Times Book Review

“Out of exquisitely attuned feeling for the past, Sebald fashioned an entirely new form of literature. I've read his books countless times trying to understand how he did it. In the end, I can only say that he practiced a kind of magic born out of almost supernatural sensitivity.”
- Nicole Krauss

“He is an addiction, and, once button-holed by his books, you have neither the wish nor the will to tear yourself away.”
- Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“An extraordinary palimpsest of nature, human, and literary history.”
- Merle Rubin, The Wall Street Journal

“In Sebald's writing, everything is connected, everything webbed together by the unseen threads of history, or chance, or fate, or death... beautiful and unsettling, elevated into an art of the uncanny―an art that was, in the end, Sebald's strange and inscrutable gift.”
- Slate

“Think of W.G. Sebald as memory's Einstein.”
- Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times

“This is very beautiful, and its strangeness is what is beautiful... One of the most mysteriously sublime of contemporary writers. And here, in The Rings of Saturn, is a book more uncanny than The Emigrants.
- James Wood, The New Republic

“Sublime.”
- Cynthia Ozick

“The first thing to be said about W. G. Sebald's books is that they always had a posthumous quality to them. He wrote―as was often remarked―like a ghost. He was one of the most innovative writers of the late twentieth century, and yet part of this originality derived from the way his prose felt exhumed from the nineteenth.”
- Geoff Dyer

“Few writers have traveled as quickly from obscurity to the sort of renown that yields an adjective as quickly as German writer W. G. Sebald (1944 - 2001), and now Sebaldian is as evocative as Kafkaesque. Sebald is that rare being: an inimitable stylist who creates extraordinary sentences that, like crystals, simultaneously refract and magnify meaning.”
- Booklist
