A Place in the Country
Available in Stock
This collection of interlinked essays about place, memory and creativity captures the inner lives of five writers – Johann Peter Hebel, Rousseau, Eduard Mörike, Gottfried Keller and Jan Peter Tripp – and one painter, Robert Walser. Written in his characteristic creative prose – part critical essay, part memoir – these last essays by WG Sebald (1944–2001) offer what his translator, Jo Catling, describes in her introduction as 'an unprecedented glimpse into the writer's workshop'. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
