    This tenth anniversary edition of W. G. Sebald’s celebrated masterpiece includes a new Introduction by acclaimed critic James Wood. Austerlitz is the story of a man’s search for the answer to his life’s central riddle. A small child when he comes to England on a Kindertransport in the summer of 1939, Jacques Austerlitz is told nothing of his real family by the Welsh Methodist minister and his wife who raise him. When he is a much older man, fleeting memories return to him, and obeying an instinct he only dimly understands, Austerlitz follows their trail back to the world he left behind a half century before. There, faced with the void at the heart of twentieth-century Europe, he struggles to rescue his heritage from oblivion.

Not real at one moment and flickeringly illusory the next...but both at once, as if a ghost had a pulse.' His book, How Fiction Works, is both a study of the techniques of fiction-making and an alternative history of the novel. 288p.

    The art of storytelling is one which depends on an intrinsic understanding between the audience and the storyteller. Yet, while many would make the claim that this understanding is something that just happens - perhaps as if by magic -it is only through a vivid exploration of the writer's craft that audiences can truly understand the importance of the art of fiction. In 'How Fiction Works,' prominent author & scholar James Wood continues the tradition of E.M. Forster & Milan Kundera through a pointed and easily digestible foray into the key elements of effective fiction. Throughout this entertaining and informative summation, readers and writers alike gain insight into their essential bonds.

    Following The Broken Estate, The Irresponsible Self, and How Fiction Works—books that established James Wood as the leading critic of his generation—The Fun Stuff confirms Wood’s preeminence, not only as a discerning judge but also as an appreciator of the contemporary novel. In twenty-three passionate, sparkling dispatches—that range over such crucial writers as Thomas Hardy, Leon Tolstoy, Edmund Wilson, and Mikhail Lermontov—Wood offers a panoramic look at the modern novel. He effortlessly connects his encyclopedic, passionate understanding of the literary canon with an equally in-depth analysis of the most important authors writing today, including Cormac McCarthy, Lydia Davis, Aleksandar Hemon, and Michel Houellebecq. Included in The Fun Stuff are the title essay on Keith Moon and the lost joys of drumming—which was a finalist for last year’s National Magazine Awards—as well as Wood’s essay on George Orwell, which Christopher Hitchens selected for the Best American Essays 2010. The Fun Stuff is indispensable reading for anyone who cares about contemporary literature.
