Review:

"An exquisitely constructed narrative... Peeling the Onion is a genuine masterpiece" ( Independent on Sunday)

"A memoir of rare literary beauty" ( New Yorker)

"As a writer, his influence still looms large, and Peeling the Onion is a reminder why. It has that same imaginative accuracy that made The Tin Drum a bestseller" ( The Times)

"An ingenious but treacherous text that glides constantly between past and present, first and third person, memory and imagination" ( Evening Standard)

"This subtle and expertly written book is really a memoir about forgetting" (Sebastian Faulks Sunday Times)

Book Description:

The memoir of Germany's most celebrated contemporary writer.
