Of All That Ends

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
 
"A final book like no other" from the Nobel Prize - winning author of The Tin Drum: poetry and meditations on writing, aging, and living until the end (The Irish Times).

In spite of the trials of old age, and with the end in sight, Gunter Grass weaves his life's reflections together into a witty and elegiac swansong: love letters, soliloquies, jealous musings, social satire, and moments of happiness long to be shared.

As the inimitable German fabulist lives his remaining days, his passion for writing spurs in him new life. His final work is a creation filled with wisdom and defiance. In a striking interplay of poetry, lyric prose, and drawings, this diverse assemblage is a moving farewell gift - a sensual, melancholy summation of a life fully lived.

"Elegant musings on dying and, most poignantly, living." - Kirkus Reviews

"A glorious gift, a final salute true to the singular creativity of the most human, and humane, of artists." - The Irish Times

"A thoughtful, uncompromising meditation on death and aging . . . He describes loss, change, and memory with a combination of melancholy and wit." - Publishers Weekly
