Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed as the greatest German novel written since the end of World War II, The Tin Drum is the autobiography of thirty-year-old Oskar Matzerath, who has lived through the long Nazi nightmare and who, as the novel begins, is being held in a mental institution. Willfully stunting his growth at three feet for many years, wielding his tin drum and piercing scream as anarchistic weapons, he provides a profound yet hilarious perspective on both German history and the human condition in the modern world.

Review:

"Grass works with a range of theatrical inventiveness that shades from Goethe at his most Mephistophelean to Ionesco at his most perverse. The Tin Drum is a formidable, if formidably uneven, novel. It is also a prime example of The Novel of the Absurd." New York Times
