1959. Often classified as 'magic realism.' Narrated in the first person by Oskar, who is born in 1924 and " grows up" (ha ha) an ethnic German (who is also part Polish) in Danzig (later, Gdansk). Oskar narrates events leading to his birth, in Danzig during the rise and fall of Nazism, and in post-war Germany.Not a linear narrative. Completely gripping, but not an "easy read." The masterwork of Nobel Prize winner Guenter Grass, this is one of the greatest novels ever written.
