Description

In Case of Loss reveals Seiler’s essays to be different to, but on a par with, his fiction and poetry. Beautifully anecdotal and associative, they throw a light on literature and his East German background, including the Soviet-era mining community he grew up in, and are full of insight, humanity and an attention to overlooked objects and lives.’It is never about reconstructing. Memory does not bring back what was forgotten. Indeed, the person who remembers doesn’t even know for sure that what is remembered ever existed. . . Seiler’s inimitable style as a storyteller, the wilful waywardness and weight of what he has to say, the intensity (and personal tact) of his engagement with the landscapes of others’ poetries and lives all make these essays a lively portrait of the writer surrounded by his library. Seiler sets standards for reflection in art today. At the same time, he gives us a sense of the pagan-sacramental importance of objects in poetry.’ Sibylle Cramer, Süddeutsche Zeitung.
