About This Item

London: Vintage, 2002 9780099448921. Paperback. Fine. No inscriptions or annotations. 296 pages. Hugely original and erudite travelogue-come-memoir from one of Europe's most lauded writers. The Rings of Saturn begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia. From Lowestoft to Bungay, Sebald's own story becomes the conductor of evocations of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. The result is a rich meditation on the past via a melancholy trip along the Suffolk coast, and an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transienceof all things human. "The finest boo of long-distance travel that I've ever read." Jonathan Raban, Times Literary Supplement. .
