The Emigrants by W.G. Sebald
February 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Gyaan Adab & The Book Club, Pune
by W.G. Sebald
About The Novel : The Emigrants is presented as a set of observations and recollections. The narrator recounts his involvement with four different characters, all of whom are emigrants. The text includes many black and white photographs and strays sharply from general formats of plot and narrative.
About the Author: Sebald (1944 - 2001) established himself as a deeply serious and ambitious writer who reckoned, and self-reckoned, with the gravest questions of European history. He founded a new literary form, combining essay, fiction and photography. His works are largely concerned with the themes of memory and decay. They are, in particular, attempts to reconcile himself with, and deal in literary terms with, the trauma of the Second World War and its effect on the German people.
About the Presenter: Virginia (Ginny) Naudé graduated from Bryn Mawr College, majoring in History of Art and then trained at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London for a career in the conservation of sculptures and monuments. She is also an artist in her own right.
