Günter Grass, says The Times, 'is on his own as an artist', and indeed this extraordinary, provoking and joyously Rabelaisian celebration of life, food and sex is unique.

Lifted from their ancient fairytale, the fisherman and his wife are still living today. During the months of Ilsebill's pregnancy, the fisherman tells her of his adventures through time with the Flounder, constituting a complete reworking of social, political and gastronomic history.

Review:

"A masterpiece by one of the most gifted and original of contemporary writers. It is a book that will repay study and rereading. Only a churlish, insular reader could fail to respond to its bold and exhilarating historical sweep, its poetic celebration of food and the arts of cooking" ( New Statesman)

"Grass spices his potent brew with a juicy concoction of tales and anecdotes, and a rich, Rabelaisian humour" ( Daily Telegraph)

"I know of no one else capable of writing anything like it" ( Sunday Times)

"Grass is one of the few great writers in Europe today" ( Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

Nobel Prize-winning author Günter Grass takes as his theme the relationships between food, women and war as he re-imagines the fairy tale of The Fisherman and His Wife.
