Summary
"Oskar, a hunchback detained in a mental hospital and convicted of a murder he did not commit, tells the story of his life through the horrors of the Nazi era. Through the imaginative distortion and exaggeration of historical experience, a pathetically hilarious yet startlingly true portrayal of the human situation comes into view."--B.I.P

Summary
On his third birthday, Oskar decides to stop growing. Haunted by the deaths of his parents and wielding his tin drum, Oskar recounts the events of his extraordinary life; from the long nightmare of the Nazi era to his anarchic adventures in post-war Germany.
