This work, along with Austerlitz, Rings of Saturn and Vertigo, is an erudite, almost stream-of-consciousness, run-on (in a good way), moreover, melding of fact and fiction and travel and history. Come to think of it, the story never seems like a blending of fact or fiction, Sebald probably operates in the realm of fiction to free the work when everything reads as peculiar and particular biography. Highly recommended.
