Close Read: Chitra Ramaswamy on Austerlitz by W G Sebald

Take a deep dive into Sebald’s final novel, Austerlitz, with award-winning journalist and author Chitra Ramaswamy. Sebald was one of literature’s most influential figures and Austerlitz was his masterpiece. The novel follows the journey of a Jewish man sent to England by Kindertransport in 1939. The same story features in Ramaswamy’s new memoir, Homelands. Expect an open discussion from the start: read the book in advance or pick it up afterwards.
