RIP Gunter Grass

On Monday, at the age of 87, Gunter Grass died. Called a “towering literary figure” by Der Spiegel, he is perhaps best know to many as the author of  Blechtrommel (The Tin Drum). Read more about him in our collection and his obituary in Der Spiegel, and check out his writings in our collection (you can limit to English language if needed).
