A nice little mention in the Times Higher Education Magazine...

 

Uwe Schütte , reader in German, Aston University, is reading Philippa Comber’s Ariadne’s Thread: In Memory of W. G. Sebald (Propolis, 2014). “Scholarly research on Sebald, the German writer and academic, is booming at an incredible pace since his tragic death in 2001. As a former student of Sebald, I was curious to read this personal homage cum memoir written by a close friend. Comber gives us an often thrilling insight into the personality of a very private man, and simultaneously destroys and creates new myths.”
