The Tin Drum Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a new translation of The Tin Drum, one that is faithful to Grass's style and rhythm, restores omissions, and reflects more fully the complexity of the original work. This is the story of Oskar Matzerath whose imaginative distortion and exaggeration of history reveals a startling portrayal of the human situation.

Synopsis:

Oskar, a hunchback detained in a mental hospital and convicted of a murder he did not commit, tells the story of his life through the horrors of the Nazi era. Through the imaginative distortion and exaggeration of historical experience, a pathetically hilarious yet startlingly true portrayal of the human situation comes into view.
