Missing Persons and Other Essaysby Heinrich Boll, Leila Vennewitz (Translator)
The only collection of Boll's nonfiction prose to be published in English spans over two decades of social, political, literary, and cultural commentary. These twenty-nine essays, reviews, and speeches reflect the same moral passion and deep wisdom that resonate through his fiction. Here is Boll the Nobel laureate and Boll the private man: his compassion for ordinary people, his unblinking view of the tragedies of war, his satiric portrait of modern urban life, and his deeply personal reflections on life and literature.
