Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Nobel Prize winner Gnter Grass writes in the voices of his eight children as they record memories of their childhoods and their father, who was always at work on a new book, at the margins of their lives. They piece together an intimate picture of this most public of men, to say nothing of Marie, a family friend and photographer whose snapshots taken with an old-fashioned Agfa box camera provide the author with inspiration for his novelsand more. They reveal a truth beyond the ordinary detail of life, depict the future, tell what might have been, and grant the wishes, in visual form, of those photographed. Maries camera becomes a way for Grass to speak in the voices of his childrens hidden selves and to see his own life from unexpected perspectives. An inspired and daring work in its candor, wit, and earthiness, this is Grass at his best.
