An abstract of Stewart Martin's W.G. Sebald and the modern art of memory is up on the Radical Philosophy site. I think Martin's piece is convoluted and, ultimately, wrong-headed, but it is a serious article and deserves a full response ...

The latest issue of Radical Philosophy (number 133; not listed on their site as yet) has an interesting article about David Peace's GB84, by Joseph Brooker, which is worth reading too.

GB84 deserves attention on the Left, since its political knowledge and commitment are relatively unusual in contemporary British fiction. Indeed, while not all its risks may be judged successful, the book's formal experiments merit the attention of anyone interested in the current possibilities of fiction - and of historical fiction in particular.
