special performance of a special story

Any additional comments?

I've been waiting for W.G. Sebald to appear on Audible for years, and here his work debuts in grand style. I can't wait for the rest of the book to show up.

1 chapter only 😣

Bit disappointed that you can only listen to one chapter! Other than that, it's great!

A few extras, but still only one chapter...

Would you listen to The Emigrants: Ambros Adelwarth (Dramatised) again? Why?

A great interpretation - takes the original text of one chapter of W.G. Sebald's fabulous piece, and embellishes it minimally, to bring it to life. Made a challenging chapter far more accessible - and opened up the rest of the book for me, too. A shame there's only one chapter available, though...
