The Emigrants

Reading Sebald's "The Emigrants". I so much enjoy his writings. His early death was such a cruel tragedy, but somehow reminds me of the stories and anecdotes he writes about:

"Sebald [aged 57] died while driving near Norwich in December 2001. The coroner's report, released some six months later, stated that Sebald had suffered an aneurysm and had died of this condition before his car swerved across the road and collided with an oncoming lorry." (Wikipedia)
