Gunter Grass

Günter Grass:Truth and Lies

Right after I hit “send” on my second last column – the one about being short – I kicked myself (as best I could with these damn stubby legs) for forgetting to mention The Tin Drum, whose anti-hero, Oskar, is the Marjorie Morningstar of midgets.

Then right after that, Günter Grass, the guy who wrote the novel, died.

    He only wrote two works of any note. I went to see the Tin Drum back in the 70s.
