Review:

PRAISE FOR CRABWALK
"This short yet sprawling book serves as a reminder of Grass' myriad writerly gifts."-San Francisco Chronicle
"Masterful . . . This is his most powerful book since The Tin Drum." -The Seattle Times
PRAISE FOR TOO FAR AFIELD
"It is the work of a seasoned craftsman, certain of what he wants to do, completely in control of his gifts." -The New York Times Book Review

From the Back Cover:

Selected from the vast range of his work, the writings included in this anthology trace Gunter Grass's development as a writer, and with it the history of a nation coming to terms with its past.
Excerpts from Grass's major novels--from The Tin Drum to Crabwalk--are included, as are numerous short fictions, essays, and poems, many of which have never appeared before in English. Grass's gifts as an observer of and participant in the social and political landscape are justly celebrated, as are his inimitable sense of humor, his consistent defense of the disadvantaged, and his mastery of the forms of expression he has employed over the years.
For readers in search of an introduction to his work or for those familiar primarily with his novels, this diverse collection offers a fresh and stimulating introduction to one of the world's greatest living writers.
Born in Danzig, Germany, in 1927, Gunter Grass is a widely acclaimed author of plays, essays, poems, and numerous novels. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999.
