The Flounder

Grass, Gunther


1st Edition

Publisher’s brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. In sl. age-tanned dust jacket, sunned to spine. Translated from the German by Ralph Manheim. *** Based on the folktale “The Fisherman and his Wife”, Grass’s 1978 international bestseller The Flounder has been called an anti-feminist novel by feminists ever since publication. The book could also be read as a defense of women and a denouncement of male chauvinism, men say in its defense. The jury is still out.
