Abstract:

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this classic novel, an acclaimed translator and scholar has drawn from many sources for this new translation, more faithful to Grass's style and rhythm.

Contemporary German novel, the subject of much controversy when it was first published in 1959, focuses on the years of Nazi control in Germany as seen through the eyes of an intelligent dwarf, masquerading as a retarded lunatic. -- Publisher description
