Vertigo, W. Sebald's first novel, never before translated into English, is perhaps his most amazing and certainly his most alarming. Sebald-the acknowledged master of memory's uncanniness-takes the painful pleasures of unknowability to new intensities in Vertigo. Here in their first flowering are the signature elements of Sebald's hugely acclaimed novels The Emigrants and The Rings of Saturn. An unnamed narrator, beset by nervous ailments, is again our guide on a hair-raising journey through the past and across Europe, amid restless literary ghosts-Kafka, Stendhal, Casanova.

Urn Burial, one of the most influential essays in Western literature, is now available as a New Directions Pearl.

Hydriotaphia, or Urn Burial, is one of the pinnacles of Renaissance scholarship and without doubt one of the great essays in English literature. Beginning with observations on the recent discovery of Roman antiquities in the form of burial urns, Browne’s associative mind wanders to elephant graveyards, to pre-Christian cremation ceremonies, and finally to the idea of Christian burial. Browne then explores, with a more melancholic meditation, man’s struggles with mortality and the uncertainty of his fate and fame in the living world. This edition includes a magisterial discourse on Sir Thomas Browne taken from the first chapter of W. G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn.

Unfortunately, the "preface" by W.G. Sebald is taken directly from "The Rings of Saturn." This is not a new text by Sebald.

The publishing trend of dissecting Browne's 1658 Discourses totally against the author's intentions persists in this New Directions edition. To understand fully Browne's artistic vision it is necessary to have access to and read 'The Garden of Cyrus' the diptych companion which counter-balances the themes, imagery and truths of 'Urn-Burial. This edition only gives one half of the coin, and lifts a short paragraph of W.G. Sebald's 'Rings of Saturn' to pass off as a new introduction.
