The Tin Drum

The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass is a classic from the word go. Deeply engrossing, complicated and layered, it kept me completely hooked. Oskar is an unforgettable character, and unexpected reminders of him keep popping up all around me. Practically every sentence had me marvelling at its weight and construction. Fascinating and a must-read, even if you don’t want to delve deep into the symbolism.
