AlthoughThe Tin Drumhas often been called one of the great novels of the 20th century, most critics have been baffled in attempting to draw its apparent chaos into a single literary framework.

By readingThe Tin Drumas both modern myth and historical epic, he provides a profound and sensitive interpretation of one of the masterpieces of 20th century literature.
