The Rings of Saturn

The Rings of Saturn

Author(s): W G Sebald

Location(s): East Anglia

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): 1992



There is a narrative thread in the form of a journey through East Anglia but this is broken by tangental episodes and characters that drift in often seemingly from out of nowhere. This mixture of abstraction and convention is held together by an elegiac low key prose style which I find completely beguiling. (Mike Phillips)
