Vulgar Rings

An excerpt from my review of ‘The Rings of Saturn’ by WG Sebald here: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2018/09/06/the-rings-of-saturn-w-g-sebald/

“…that invisible spirit aboard his unmoving barque.”

“….during my childhood when I had watched from the valley as swallows circled in the last light, still in great numbers in those days, I would imagine that the world was held together by the courses they flew through the air.”

Now my own photo from a few years back –

Much of interest in these pages, including the tale of the woman who was referenced in this newspaper headline: “Housekeeper Rewarded for Silent Dinners.” And…

“…a writing of a novel that would fly in the face of palpable facts and become entangled in such a way that few readers — very few readers — would be able to grasp the hidden, horrific, yet at the same time quite meaningless point of the narrative.”

Cross-referenced this Sebald book again with my chance concurrent review of VULGAR THINGS here: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2018/09/05/vulgar-things-lee-rourke/
