4:07 The Sunday Feature: BBC World Book Club with Guenter Grass
Guenter Grass, German Nobel literature prize-winner and author of The Tin Drum, died on April 13, 2015 aged 87. Before his death he had been described as "the world’s most important living writer".
Harriet Gilbert of the BBC Word Book Club looks back to the day she spent with Guenter after he invited her into his home in Germany to put listeners' questions to him about his internationally-celebrated novel The Tin Drum.
Bitter and impassioned, the book charts the rise and fall of Nazism through the mischievous eyes of Oskar Matzerath, a dwarf who decided to stop growing at the age of three. First published half a century ago, The Tin Drum was re-published in new translations all over the world to mark its 50th birthday in 2009. (BBC World Service).
