Too Far Afield by Gunter Grass

'The appeal of the novel is the sense it gives of the heady mixture of transitions and elaborations which lent the years 1989-1991 their distinctive feeling. Grass has succeeded in setting down monuments to those dog days of division, with their linguistic shifts and iconography, rapidly changing cast of characters, uncertainty, and exhilaration . . . An appealing and readable reflection on the second unification.' Times Literary Supplement

Grass writes with the wit, fantasy, literary erudition and political acerbity for which he is celebrated. This novel will stand as perhaps the most complex and challenging exploration of what Germany's recent unification will mean - for Germans on both sides of the former divide, for Europeans, and for the rest of the world.
