What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

Three first edition novels in the original German, all in the original unclipped dust wrappers.

With political topics and discussions of gender at the forefront of these unique works. 

In the original cloth bindings. 

This set comprises:

Aus dem Tagebuch einer Schnecke (1972) - Claimed by some to be the most autobiographical of his works, with accounts of his political campaigning with Willy Brandt and the history of the persecuted Danzig Jews. 

Der Butt (1977) - Loosely based on the German fairy tale 'The Fisherman and His Wife.' with the key theme being women's historical contributions in both fact and fiction. 

Kopfgeburten oder Die Deutschen (1980) - A couple on holiday in Asia cannot escape the political upheaval from back home. In this, Grass takes aim at capitalism, communism and religion.
