Ostensibly a record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia," as Robert McCrum in the London Observer noted, The Rings of Saturn "is also a brilliantly allusive study of England's imperial past and the nature of decline and fall, of loss and decay. . . . The Rings of Saturn is exhilaratingly, you might say hypnotically, readable. . . . It is hard to imagine a stranger or more compelling work." The Rings of Saturn - with its curious archive of photographs - chronicles a tour across epochs as well as countryside. On his way, the narrator meets lonely eccentrics inhabiting tumble-down mansions and links them to Rembrandt's "Anatomy Lesson," the natural history of the herring, a matchstick model of the Temple of Jerusalem, the travels of Sir Thomas Browne's skull, and the massive bombings of WWII. Cataloging change, oblivion, and memories, he connects sugar fortunes, Joseph Conrad, and the horrors of colonizing the Belgian Congo. The narrator finds threads which run from an abandoned bridge over the River Blyth to the terrible dowager Empress Tzu Hsi and the silk industry in Norwich. "Sebald," as The New Yorker stated, "weaves his tale together with a complexity and historical sweep that easily encompasses both truth and fiction." The Emigrants (hailed by Susan Sontag as an "astonishing masterpiece-perfect while being unlike any book one has ever read") was "one of the great books of the last few years," as Michael Ondaatje noted: "and now The Rings of Saturn is a simil biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,contemporary,education and reference,essays,essays and correspondence,fiction,foreign language fiction Travel, New Directions Publishing Corporation

The Rings of Saturn, W.G. Sebald's most recent novel, has been an international sensation. Its ten strange and beautiful chapters, with their curious archive of photographs, consider dreams and reality. A fictional account of a walking tour through England's East Anglia, Sebald's home for more than twenty years, The Rings of Saturn explores Britain's pastoral and imperial past. On his pilgrimage a company of ghosts, like conductors between the past and present, keep him company: Thomas Browne, Swinburne, Chateaubriand, Borges. Sebald tells of far-off China and the introduction of the silk industry to Norwich. He visits the godforsaken harbor where Conrad first set foot on English soil, and the site of the once-great city of Dunwich, now sunk in the sea, where schools of herring swim. The author hears of the furious coastal battles of two world wars and meets lonely eccentrics inhabiting tumble-down mansions. And as Sebald catalogs the transmigration of whole worlds, the mesmerized reader is led along, viewing with him survival and memories, change and oblivion.
