I'm thinking about getting either The Flounder or Dog Years, but I don't have the money for both. Both seem really good, but Dog Years is a part of the Danzig trilogy, and while i have read The Tin Drum, I haven't had a chance to read Cat and Mouse, the second book in the trilogy, which makes me hesitant to get it right now. Thoughts on Grass? In Headbirths: or, The Germans are Dying Out (), The Meeting at Telgte (), and The Rat (), Grass shows a world that is going to be worse because it is not getting better. For a long time, Grass was considered the conscience of Germany's postwar generation, but that time has passed.
