Vertigo

W. G. Sebald

A new, modern look for Sebald’s classic trilogy of books - Vertigo, The Emigrants and The Rings of Saturn - 20 years after the tragic death of one of our most pioneering and cherished writers ‘Nothing like Vertigo is likely to be encountered in the course of one’s regular reading. One emerges from it shaken, seduced, and deeply impressed’ Anita Brookner, Spectator What could possibly connect Stendhal’s unrequited love, a series of murders by a clandestine organisation, the Great Fire of London, a story by Kafka and a closed-down pizzeria in Verona? Part fiction, part travelogue, the narrator of Sebald’s compelling masterpiece pursues his solitary, eccentric course from England to Italy and beyond, succumbing to the vertiginous unreliability of memory itself. ‘As a reader, you find his prose wrapping itself, wraith-like, round your imagination, casting a baffling and indefinable spell. Sebald entertains, provokes, stimulates and inspires’ Robert McCrum, Observer
