An electrical miracle


One of my favorite pages from W. G. Sebald's lovely book The Emigrants (translated by Michael Hulse). I am very drawn to this strange hybrid semi-non-fictional first-person voice (the effect is very strikingly that of reading non-fiction, but I believe this is quite misleading, the subjects of his profiles are imaginary as far as I know); I wouldn't mind trying something like this myself sometime...

  1. As far as I know, Sebald's characters are fictional but are sometimes based, at least in part, on real people, which makes the question of correspondence between photograph and text even more interesting. Put very bluntly: what is true?
