Review of Peeling the Ontion by Gunter Grass

Gunter Grass is by far one of my favorite authors. His ability to create memorable chracters utilize incredible language to set unsurpassable scenes is unmatched. He spins Germanic history directly into his stories and the fall of the Berlin Wall with onions in hand waltzes through his works as a leitmotif. I haven't read Peeling the Onion just yet but it's on my list. This review by John Iriving published in the Ny Times is fantastic.
