Event description

Description

Waterstones Birmingham would like to invite you to a very special evening discussing WG Sebald.

WG Sebald is a special writer, widely admired in the English-speaking world yet often controversial in his native Germany. Indeed, he was a writer between two cultures, two languages and two forms of writing: academic and imaginative.
This new general introduction written by his former PhD student Uwe Schütte aims not just to provide a knowledgeable overview of his oeuvre, but also to alert readers of English to the hidden “German” side of his writing.
Uwe Schütte is Reader in German at Aston University. He is joined by Derek Littlewood, poet and Senior Lecturer in Literature at Birmingham City University, and Richard Hibbitt, Director of Comparative Literature at the University of Leeds and the co-editor with Jo Catling of Saturn’s Moons: A W. G. Sebald Handbook.

Tickets cost £4 and are available online.
