BBC Radio Drama “Austerlitz”


On Sunday December 16, 2012, BBC Radio 3 broadcast a radio dramatisation  of W.G. Sebald’s novel Austerlitz.

It was lovely to work with the great John Taylor from Fiction Factory again.

The first  of  Sebald’s haunting masterpieces to be dramatised for radio, it follows its protagonist on a haunting tour of European cities, frontiers to inner worlds as he struggles to discover the mystery of his origins.
