The Tin Drum deals with the rise of Nazism and with the war experience in the unique cultural setting of Danzig.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the original publication of this runaway best-seller, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, along with Grass's publishers all over the world, offer a new translation of this classic novel. Breon Mitchell, acclaimed translator and scholar, has drawn from many sources. The result is a translation that is faithful to Grass's style and rhythm, restores omissions, and reflects more fully the complexity of the original work. After 50 years, The Tin Drum has, if anything, gained in power and relevance. Download and start listening now!
