Fascinating collection of essays about and conversations with the writer W G Sebald (Max). Exploring his themes of memory, silence (as in how his nation of origin refused to talk about the war, so he felt born into this silence), and his wonderful digressions. His books don't fit into any easy category, he has never called them novels or non-fiction, while both true stories and blurring of reality are within the pages.

This is a short book in which Schwartz shares her opinions on reading and life.

The fact that it is not divided into chapters was annoying to me. It made it harder to stop and start, since I didn't want to read it all at once.

Some of her thoughts are spot-on, others I couldn't relate to. Some of her writing is pretentious. There were spoilers for a couple books.

There were too many little sexual references for my taste; though not graphic, they were still unnecessary.

Despite these flaws, I did enjoy the read overall, and have added a few books she mentioned to my to-read list.… (més)

An intriguing and lovely exploration into the writings of Sebald. Much to think about here.
