SALES POINTS: * Gunter Grass is postwar Germany's most celebrated and acclaimed novelist, and a writer who enjoys a pivotal role on the international literary stage. * Beautiful repackage of a classic backlist title.

THE BOOK: To compensate for his unusually large Adam's apple- source of both comfort and distress- fourteen year old Mahlke turns himself into athlete and ace diver. Soon he is known to his peers and his nation as 'The Great Mahlke'. But to his enemies, he remains a target. He is different and doomed in a country scarred by Nazi volence and the war.
