The classic fictional autobiography of Oskar Matzerath who is detained in a mental hospital, convicted of a murder he did not commit. Oskar is an amazing man who, at birth has an allmost adult mind. He is an anarchist, sadistic and grotesque. Fascinating reading. One of those books that changes your thinking.
