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 Morike, 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 with a felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
