Sebald is one of very few German writers of the last few decades to have attracted both a broad readership in the UK and an international following of journalists and scholars alike.

His books include Austerlitz, The Emigrants, The Rings of Saturn and After Nature. Iain Galbraith is a widely published translator of German into English.
