For the Guardian, she named a top ten list of "books that take her on a globe-spanning, literary adventure." One title on the list:
Austerlitz by WG SebaldRead about the other books on the list.
As one of the Kindertransport children, five-year-old Jacques Austerlitz arrives in Britain in 1939 to live with foster parents in Wales. All conscious memory of his previous life is obliterated. As a story about loss and redemption, trauma, repression and memory, this poignant narrative leads us through a maze of uncanny dialogues. An inconsolable Holocaust history, this is a major chronicle of our times.
Austerlitz is among the top ten works of literature according to Peter Carey.
