About This Item

"Dog Years' is a meditation on modern history in the guise of a novel, a study of Germany before, during and after the Second World War, a tale of the interrelated fortunes of two friends, Walter Matern [and] Eddi Amsel, half-Jew. In its well-nigh stupefying length, in its almost ritual use of distortions, shifting perspectives, and completely unaccommodating, dispassionate weaving of minutiae (at once quaint, brutal, and poetic), and in the terrible geniality of its denunciatory spirit and in its disgusts, it is without doubt one of the most astonishing literary performances since 'Finnegan's Wake'. It is also, naturally, one of the most troubling."[Kirkus Reviews] The third book in the Danzig Trilogy: 'The Tin Drum,' 'Cat and Mouse' and 'Dog Years'; all documenting the rise of Nazism, WWII, and the following years. The Nobel Prize in Literature 1999 was awarded to Gunter Grass "whose frolicsome black fables portray the forgotten face of history." [Nobel Prize Info] There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST US EDITION.
