Nobel prize winner's novel is an explosive fusion of myth and reality, magic and romance, and charts forty years of German history, starting from 1917 and exposes the madness of a society that bred and nurtured the horrors of the Third Reich.

Gunter Grass releases, against the grain of history, a troop of obsessional characters, armed often with magical or at least disconcerting powers, who gnaw through the madness of the Third Reich and the chaos of the collapse, into the complacent fabric of modern West Germany.


Forty years of twentieth-century German history observed through a massive fable about men and dogs. Mad, Gothic, repetitive and bitterly funny. - Michael Ratcliff, Sunday Times
