9780156319355: The Flounder (Helen & Kurt Wolff Book)

It all begins in the Stone Age, when a talking fish is caught by a fisherman at the very spot where millennia later Grass's home town, Danzig, will arise. Like the fish, the fisherman is immortal, and down through the ages they move together. As Grass blends his ingredients into a powerful brew, he shows himself at the peak of his linguistic inventiveness. Translated by Ralph Manheim. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book

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 GŁnter 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.
