Searching for Sebald

W.G. Sebald wrote four works of prose fiction before he died in December 2001 at the young age of 57. By the time his last book, Austerlitz, was released in the months before his death, he was internationally recognized as one of the great European writers of the 20th century, with far-reaching influence in fields outside of literature, including sociology, cultural studies and visual arts.

Searching for Sebald adopts a unique perspective on Sebald's use of images, including a nuanced discussion of shifting layouts in different editions of the books. Theoretical essays approach Sebald through the multiple filters of art history, film and photographic studies, cultural theory, and psychoanalysis.
