Item description for Pelando La Cebolla/ Peel the Onion (Spanish Edition) by Gunter Grass...

Nobel laureate and Germany's greatest living author and moralist, shocked everyone when he revealed that he once was a member of Hitler's elite Waffen-SS. The great surprise was that he concealed his service for decades while harshly criticizing his country people for failing to deal adequately with their Nazi past. In this, his latest autobiographical memoir, he tries to explain why his story is more complicated than it sounds and discloses how he was finally driven by guilt to reveal this shameful episode in his past. He sketches his life deliberately mixing his real life and the characters from his fictions in a process that, not unlike the peeling of an onion, uncovers layers and produces tears.

Description in Spanish: El recuerdo se asemeja a una cebolla que quisiera ser pelada para dejar al descubierto lo que, letra por letra, puede leerse en ella. Pelando la cebolla es un extraordinario ejercicio de memoria en el que Gnter Grass se pregunta sin autocomplacencia y con absoluta sinceridad por los sucesos que marcaron los primeros aos de su vida. Desde su niez en Danzig, su incorporacin a la Waffen SS, su trabajo como minero sobre los escombros de aquella Alemania de posguerra, hasta su exilio en Pars, donde escribir a lo largo de dos dursimos aos El tambor de hojalata. Este libro es la narracin de una vida intensa y es, a la vez, una honesta confesin en la que Gnter Grass plantea cmo el no preguntar supone una forma de compromiso. Las pginas de Pelando la cebolla gozan de una frescura y fuerza genuinas que nos invitan a adentrarnos en la obra de un escritor que ya es uno de los clsicos indiscutidos de la literatura actual.
