Silent Catastrophes encompasses two major books of literary criticism, Describing Disaster (1985) and Strange Homeland (1991). These collections of essays examine the great German writers of modernity, including Franz Kafka, Joseph Roth, Elias Canetti and Thomas Bernheard, who were among Sebald's most important influences as a writer.
