“A beautiful novel…quietly breathtaking…Sebald contrives not to offer an ordinary, straightforward recital. For what is so delicate is how Sebald makes Austerlitz’s story a broken, recessed enigma whose meaning the reader must impossibly rescue.”—from the Introduction

“Sebald is a rare and elusive species…but still, he is an easy read, just as Kafka is…He is an addiction, and once buttonholed by his books, you have neither the wish nor the will to tear yourself away.”—The New Yorker

“Sebald’s final novel; his masterpiece, and one of the supreme works of art of our time.”—John Banville, The Guardian
