Peeling the Onion by Gunter Grass
Peeling the Onion is German writer Gunter Grass' memoir from his boyhood in Danzig through the publication of his bestselling novel, The Tin Drum. This includes his membership in the Hitler Youth and his being drafted into the Waffen-SS in 1944. He was captured by the Allies and spent time in a POW camp. He lived through post-war Germany and moved to Paris with his wife, where he eventually wrote his masterpiece. It's a portrait of the artist from a headstrong youth to bestselling and revered author, with his acknowledgement of his own Nazi past. Peeling the Onion has received mostly positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Peeling the Onion is a delightful and quintessentially Gunter Grass book, full of spice and vinegar, replete with all the qualities that have drawn generations of readers to him and his work."
