The winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999 signs in his book Kinderlied: Poems and Etchings
Book signed: "Günter Grass" on a special title page. Kinderlied: Poems and Etchings by Günter Grass, translated from the German by Michael Hamburger, 68p, 11¼x8¾, hardcover, Lord John Press: 1982. First Edition, numbered "146" of 300. This book, whose title is translated as "Children's Song", is definitely not for children, although it includes the innocent-sounding poems "Flag of Poland", "Nursery Rhyme" and "Tour de France". Grass, who began writing poetry and plays in the 1950s, is best known for chronicling Germany's turbulent 20th century history in novels including The Tin Drum (English version, 1962). German novelist and social critic Grass (1927-2015) was awarded the 1999 Nobel Prize for Literature for his body of work, which included his first novel, The Tin Drum (1959), the first of his The Danzig Trilogy. The trilogy, which also included Cat and Mouse and Dog Years, captured German reaction to the rise of Nazism, the horrors of war and the nation's guilt following Hitler's regime. Cover lightly scuffed. Fine condition.
