Tehelka - - ART - SENGUPTA

Auster­litz is a haunt­ing med­i­ta­tion on mem­ory, iden­tity and his­tory by WG Se­bald. It mixes up lots of things — mem­oir, fic­tion, his­tory, facts, pho­to­graphs — from a dif­fer­ent time in Euro­pean civil­i­sa­tion. It is never self-in­dul­gent, brash or overtly re­bel­lious. The dif­fer­ent el­e­ments cre­ate the ef­fect of a good book and also of an art ex­hi­bi­tion or a cer­tain film that leaves one feel­ing ful­filled.
