    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.

    The final collection of essays by the German writer offers profound ruminations on many themes common to his work - the power of memory and personal history, the connections between images in the arts and life, the presence of ghosts in places and artifacts. Three of these pieces are set in Corsica, weaving elegiacally between past and present, examining, among other things, the island's formative effect on its most famouscitizen, Napoleon. Coming under discussion elsewhere are the works of Gunter Grass, Heinrich Boll, and Kafka. Notes, Source of the Text. 221p.

    UNRECOUNTED combines thirty-three of what W.G. Sebald called his 'micropoems' - miniatures as unclassifiable as all his works -w ith 33 lithographs by Jan Peter Tripp. The lithographs portray, with stunning exactness, pains of eyes: among them the eyes of Borges, Proust, Jasper Johns, Francis Bacon, Tripp, Sebald, and Sebald's dog, Maurice. The poems are anti-narrative, epiphanic, and brief as haiku. The art and the poems do not explain one another, but rather engage in a kind of dialogue. List of Subjects & Titles. Illus., b&w photos. 109p.
