Peeling the Onion is a searingly honest account of Grass' modest upbringing in Danzig, his time as a boy soldier fighting the Russians, and the writing of his masterpiece, The Tin Drum, in Paris.
It is a remarkable autobiography and, without question, one of Gunter Grass' finest works.
By the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Tin Drum.
