HEINRICH BÖLL In 1972, Heinrich Böll became the first German to win the Nobel Prize for literature since Thomas . With the exception of The Mad Dog, the stories and novellas in this volume are translated by Leila Vennewitz.

HEINRICH BÖLL In 1972, Heinrich Böll became the first German to win the Nobel Prize for literature since Thomas Mann in 1929.

Heinrich Boll was a German soldier in WWII, and I presume these stories are based in parts on what he experienced. Though you know I'm only half through these collections of stories, but I'm already stunned, hurt for words.

The stories of Heinrich Böll. Until his recent death, Boll was the preeminent chronicler of Germany's agonizing rebirth in the latter 20th century. His writings pick at his country's freshly healed wounds, examining the alienation.

Many of them find it in Poland, but it's precarious. I spoke to nearly two dozen Ukrainians, Uber drivers and activists, about the community's life and work in Poland.

  • Still In Mind
Years ago, I tried my best to read Boll in his native tongue, German - but alas my German wasn't up to this standard. I tried to get it in another language a bit closer to home, but sadly this particular book I was trying to find, hadn't been translated into Dutch or English for that matter. So surfing the net I came across this title and ordered it accordingly. The book is a wonderful read - nice thick fella that will last me thrrough the winter !! :-))) It arrived quickly, in really beautiful condition for a 2nd hand book, thank you so much seller !!! So I therefore send 5***** to this seller, and the book itself !! - this will go a long way to a better understanding of the author Heinrich Boll !
Kind regards, L.B.

One of the greatest writers in all literature. The humanity of Boll is beyond compare. There is life in every sentence, unforgettable characters in every story.
  • Giamah
Good book if you are looking for meaningful short stories
  • Brightfury
I was well acquainted with his writing in my school days after WWII. His stories deal often with this subject,sad, but splendidly told.

How many author could possibly deliver poignant stories within handful of pages as Heinrich Boll repeatedly did? There have been only few and unfortunately there isn't any left now. This book is the compilation of most notable stories written by him such as "Children are civilians too" whose accutely realistic backgrond is strangely surreal as well as "And where were you , Adam?" one of the most powerful novellas come out of the war;In which,the chapter that describes the death of Ilona delivered such a powerful blow that it almost gives a narcotic effect on me. What I particulary admire about Heinrich Boll is his sympathetic look on so-called "Kleine Mann" (little man). Most of protagonists/narrators of his stories are no other than ordinary Landsers ( ordinary Wehrmacht soldiers like Boll himself),refugees, and civilians whose destiny and often tragic deaths are not consequence of thier acts but played by ones beyond their comprehension . Boll never tried to delve into searching for the causality of the war and it's tragic outcomes. The futile efforts that makes a writer neglect the sufferings of ordinary people.
With superb translation, the book will grip anyone's attention and shows the mastery of Boll's story telling.
Highly recommended if you can find the book
  • EROROHALO
A fantastic collection. Boll shows a beautiful touch in presenting the horror of WWII and its aftermath. The story "Stranger bear word to the Spartans..." alone is worth the cover price, and it's only 5 of the 400+ pages. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. It will introduce you to one of the finest writers of the 20th century.

I picked this up at a used bookstore for about 5. Powerful stuff, Heinrich Boll writes of the war from the German perspective. Lovely tales. Font is a bit small though.
What an amazing collection of short stories. Heinrich Boll gives a revealing look into WWII from a German soldier's point of view. Heinrich Boll was a German soldier. Heinrich Boll tells a great story. He is a human being. He grew up and was who he was and now he leaves behind stories. My personal favorites are: 'Parting', 'At the Bridge', 'In the Darkness', 'Stranger, Bear Word to the Spartans We..', and 'A Soldier's Legacy'.
