Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Curious souls new to this writer will discover a useful introduction (including passages from "The Rings of Saturn," read by the actor Jonathan Pryce) and a handy map.
Fresh: This deconstructive pic never wields Sebald's subversive power but follows evocatively in his wake.
Fresh: Retraces Sebald's steps, reuniting the novel's descriptions of actual places and spaces with their images and weaving in illuminating commentary from admirers (Rick Moody, Robert McFarlane).
Fresh: Sometimes the scenery is breathtaking, but more often the narration lends the landscape an interest it wouldn't otherwise have.
