Book Review - The Flounder

The Flounder
Gunter Grass

Comparable stories of the battle of the sexes told by an immortal talking flounder, (yes, really) whose subtle guidance to men through the ages leads to the destruction of a once influential matriarchal society and the ascendance of patriarchy.

Hmmm, well, almost every review I've seen of this book has some negative critique or another. I, on the other hand, found it a fabulous piece of fiction. This reincarnation creation myth is quite entertaining and serves as Grass' definitive statement concerning history, feminism and yes, love. I'll leave it up to you to discover the rest.
