Guenter Grass, author of The Tin Drum, dies at 87. http://www.dailymail...m--dies-87.html

In his younger days, Grass was in the Waffen SS, a fact which he managed to keep secret for quite a while.
After that he had a hard job maintaining his status as honorary citizen of Gdansk.

 

So someone grassed on him?

^^ Bless you for that. I try not to post things that have already been posted. And it's probably the biggest death of the year I've been able to get my hands on first.

Damn fine writer and artist. I read several of his novels. I liked The Flounder in particular.
