The Rings of Saturn, Paperback Book


The Rings of Saturn begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia.

From Lowestoft to Bungay, Sebald's own story becomes the conductor of evocations of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms.

The result is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human.
