I guess me and Terry from the blog Vertigo have some odd mind-meld currently working, since we both discovered on Sunday that Random House will be publishing W.G. Sebald's essay collection A Place in the Country at some point in the future.
The proof is on the copyright page of Robert Walser's novel The Tanners, recently published by New Directions, which includes a 37-page essay on Walser by Sebald. Said essay is from said collection, and is duly noted on the copyright page. Amazon doesn't list the collection online, which likely means that it won't be available for at least 6 months.
While I'm mentioning The Tanners, I might as well say that I found it to be an odd, highly compelling read. I'm not quite sure what to make of it at the moment, but there are so many standout stories and images in the book that you'd be hard-pressed not to be strongly affected by it.
