Reprint. This translation originally published: London: Harvill, 1998.
W.G. Sebald is the author of "The Emigrants" which won the Berlin Literature Prize, the Literatur Nord Prize and the Johannes Bobrowski Medal.

A Walking tour through the haunted landscapes of the past, in the company of the exiled and the departed.

The Rings of Saturn begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia.

From Lowestoft to Southwold 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 book unlike any other in contemporary literature, an intricately patterned and endlessly thought-provoking meditation on the transience of all things human.
