Summary
  • Grass's final work, a "series of meditations on writing, growing old, and living in the world"--Dust jacket flap
  • "The final work of the Nobel Prize winner Günter Grass--a witty and elegiac series of meditations on writing, growing old, and living in the world. In spite of the trials of old age, and with the end in sight, suddenly everything seems possible again: love letters, soliloquies, scenes of jealousy, swan songs, social satire, and moments of happiness crowd onto the page. Only an aging artist who has once more cheated death can set to work with such wisdom, defiance, and wit. A wealth of touching stories is condensed into artful miniatures. In a striking interplay of poetry, lyric prose, and drawings, the Nobel Prize-winning author creates his final major work of art. A moving farewell gift, a sensual, melancholy summation of a life fully lived"--Jacket
