Sebald’s Poems To Appear in English – in 2010
An alert Vertigo reader has picked up the fact that Booktrade.info is announcing that the English rights to W.G. Sebald’s posthumously issued collection of poems have finally been picked up at the recent London Book Fair:
Looking forward to autumn 2010, Hamish Hamilton has bought UK and Commonwealth rights to W.G. Sebald’s collection of poems, Across Land and Water: Selected Poems 1964-2001, from Theo Collier at the Wylie Agency.
No advance word of this on the Hamish Hamilton website. With the June 2007 death of Michael Hamburger, who translated Sebald’s other two books of poetry, I wonder who will do the translation?
