Why You Should Read W. G. Sebald

The ghost of what historian Peter Gay calls "the bourgeois experience," molded in the liberalism and neurasthenia of the 19th century and destroyed in the wars and concentration camps of the 20th century, haunts W. Sebald's unique novels. His latest concerns the melancholic life of Jacques Austerlitz who, justifiably, exclaims, "At some point in the past, I thought, I must have made a mistake, and now I am living the wrong life. When they accidentally run into each other in , Austerlitz tells the story that occupies the rest of the book—the story of Austerlitz's life. For a long time, Austerlitz did not know his real mother and father were Prague Jews—his first memories were of his foster parents, a joyless Welsh couple.

Excavating a Life

For W. Sebald, the most haunting of German writers, the past is not prologue -- a narrative that leads up to the present and obligingly stands aside. Sebald's past is a parabola. It arcs up to meet us, and when it arcs down it pulls us with it. Jacques Austerlitz, the protagonist of Sebald's newest book, is the son of Czechoslovak Jews who sent him, at the age of 4, to Britain after the Germans marched in. He grows up in Wales, believing that his name is Dafydd Elias, goes to Oxford and becomes an architectural historian.
