Post Re: A conversation with Gunter Grass
Not only is this interview extremely powerful, it gave me more insight to why Grass writes the way he does. Now I'm going to have to re-read Too Far Afield. ;-)

This should be required viewing for all Americans considering our current political climate. We must NEVER stop questioning our leaders, all of them.

Post Re: A conversation with Gunter Grass
What I've been looking for since I first read The Tin Drum is a way to decode the fairytale allusions, so I may lurk around this archive when I am ready to reread my Vintage edition. This novel is one of the few great masterpieces of the genre.
