This is the work of Sebald's in which his theme is most easily grasped - the disturbing power in later life of early dispossession. But his manner of writing is just as strange and remarkable as in his other works - and, ultimately, compelling. The conclusion of Ambrose's tale may, in Sebald's quiet ...
