A great interpretation - takes the original text of one chapter of W.G. Sebald's fabulous piece, and embellishes it minimally, to bring it to life. Made a challenging chapter far more accessible - and opened up the rest of the book for me, too. A shame there's only one chapter available, though...
"special performance of a special story"
I've been waiting for W.G. Sebald to appear on Audible for years, and here his work debuts in grand style. I can't wait for the rest of the book to show up.
