Young Austerlitz

Penguin Books Limited (UK), 2005 - 64 Seiten
5 Rezensionen
Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books. W. G. Sebald died just as Penguin, his last publisher, began to take him to the wide audience his writing always deserved. His seamless blend of fiction, autobiography, biography, history and travel produced texts of hypnotic power that explore our relationship with the landscapes of the past. In Young Austerlitz - taken from the last book Sebald saw published - we are told the story of a man who learns that his past is a lie.

Nutzerbericht  - Steve Mitchell - Goodreads
