Absent Without Leave
Heinrich Boll

A collection of 21 stories, written over a fifteen-year period, offering an intimate, compassionate portrait of Germany in the shadow of World War II. Born in 1917, Heinrich Boll was one of the most prominent post-war German novelists, speaking out against the brutality of the Nazi regime and the emptiness of modern life. He was a founder member of Gruppe 47 and a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Internationally aclaimed, his work has been compared with that of Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway and Thomas Mann. He died in 1985.

Also by Heinrich Boll available from Marion Boyars: The Clown and Billiards at Half Past Nine.
