Sebald at the Bar
In 2003, W.G. Sebald’s German publisher Carl Hanser Verlag issued a small promotional catalog of recently published books, including Sebald’s Campo Santo. Spread across the back and front cover was a drawing of fourteen of their authors behind a bar.I’m afraid don’t recognize the German authors except for Sebald (fourth from right, looking over his eyeglasses), but I do spot three North American authors: Michael Ondaatje is just to the right of Sebald, T.C. Boyle is third from the left, and Phillip Roth is fifth from the left.Artist Quint Buchholz is credited with creating the drawing from individual author photographs.Can anyone help fill in the blanks for the ten authors I cannot identify?
