"Funny, macabre, disgusting, blasphemous, pathetic, horrifying, erotic, it is an endless delirium, an outrageous phantasmagoria in which dust from Goethe, Hans Andersen, Swift, Rabelais, Joyce, Aristophanes and Rochester dances on the point of a needle in the flame of a candle that was not worth the game' Daily Telegraph"
SALES POINTS: * The novel that launched Grass' spectacular career and one of the books of the century. Stylish repackage to reach another generation of readers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

This is a 20 CD entire reading which is very well done. Nice and true to the dark humour.
Ok it's an American reader but throw away your prejudice. The new translation seems a bit less stuffy than the Ralph Mannheim of the Penguin edition.
A bargain but little love invested in the packaging - but hey its all about the story - Oscar lives!
For the most part I DETEST (and usually avoid) the record companies' rapacious repackaging and re-releasing ad nauseam (vast extra profit for little extra outlay) but this is a worthwhile repeat buy. The packaging is sumptuous and the sound has been very greatly enhanced.
