Review: THE EMIGRANTS by W.G. Sebald

Living in English recently reviewed The Emigrants by W.G. Sebald for the WWII Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

Sebald doesn’t do much explaining, but rather shares the fragments, facts he has gathered. The remainder you have to guess, you have to sense yourself and build the whole picture from the fragments. Photos of people, places, buildings which accompany the text help you in this process of perceiving the era. I guess, knowing the Europe’s history would help reading this book.

Here’s a link to the full review.
