Author. Born in Germany, Winfred George Maximilian Sebald studied in Fribourg and Manchester, England. From 1970 he lived in Britain, joining the University of East Anglia. His writings powerfully reflected the effects of the Second World War and the Holocaust in Germany. Sebald was considered by many critics as a possible future candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature, but he died in a car accident at the height of his career. His acclaimed books include "Austerlitz," "The Rings of Saturn," "The Emigrants," "Campo Santo" and "The Unrecounted."
