Vertigo  Cover Image Book Book

Vertigo / W.G. Sebald ; translated from the German by Michael Hulse.


A unnamed narrator, beset by nervous ailments, is again the readers' guide on a hair-raising journey through the past and across Europe, amid the restless literary ghosts of Kafka, Stendhal, and Casanova. In four dizzying sections, Sebald, one of the most acclaimed European writers of our time, plunges the reader into vertigo, into that "swimming of the head" as Webster defines it.
