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.”

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/
