We doubt we’ll ever discover another writer quite like W.G. Sebald, who died in a car accident in 2001. His sublime books mix fact, fiction, autobiography, and what can only be described as reverie. This collection of interviews with the author offers a rare glimpse into how his anachronistic style was formed and where his preoccupations — with silence, exile, and the destruction of the natural world — came from.
