"The Tin Drum knows no taboos...Again and again the narrative enters the forbidden sphere where disgust and sexuality, death and blasphemy meet. What differentiates Grass in this respect from any form of pornography, and from the so-called "stark realism" of the American school, what legitimizes these blunt forays, indeed elevates them to acts of artistic brilliance, is the total objectivity with which he presents them. Unlike Henry Miller, Grass does not seek out taboos; he simply doesn't notice them." Our book number 21022.
