He was a member of the Hitler Youth and at the age of 17, he was drafted into the German army. Near the end of the war, he served as a tank gunner in the 10th SS Panzer Division. He was mostrar mais captured by the Americans and forced to visit the newly liberated Dachau concentration camp. After his release from a POW camp in 1946, he worked in a potash mine and as a stonemason's apprentice and studied painting and sculpture in Düsseldorf. His first novel, The Tin Drum, was published in 1959. It was adapted into a film and won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1979. His other works included Cat and Mouse, Dog Years, From the Diary of a Snail, The Flounder, The Rat, and Crabwalk. He also wrote a memoir entitled Peeling the Onion. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999. He was also a political activist and liberal provocateur.

Warum hab ich mir das angetan? Ich weiß es nicht. Doch kann ich nun sagen, dass ich es gelesen habe. Für meinen Geschmack in einem zu umständlichen Deutsch geschrieben, dass oft der Sinn verloren geht. Viele der Sätze zu verschachtelt.
Für mich nicht unbedingt ein lesenswertes, zu empfehlendes Buch. Einmal und nie wieder.

Definitely one of the strangest stories I ever read. I had a really hard time at first keeping up with who was talking until I realized it didn’t matter. Once you step back and understand that the story flows much easier.
