Sebald in the Theater

There’s been some talk lately of a Sebald-inspired play called "I-Witness" (seems to be most to do with The Rings of Saturn). Those of you interested in more can now watch a five-minute snippet of the play right here. (Thanks to Vertigo for bringing this to my attention.)

The play is a production fo the Volcano Theater Company and is showing in the UK. Wales Online has a write-up.

LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
