Adult Fiction BOLL

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

These mark the fifth and sixth Böll titles reprinted this year-impressive. First published in 1965, The Clown is typical Böll and is ripe with guilt and fear in its Nazi and post-Nazi Germany setting. Vennewitz's translation was dubbed "admirably smooth" (LJ 2/1/65). Katharina Blum (1975) was described by LJ's reviewer as a "powerful image of innocence betrayed, of measureless evil oozing quietly out from regulated, unimpeachable convention" (LJ 4/15/75). Two solid titles. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
