Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[This is] a brilliantly realized story (moreover brilliantly translated by Ralph Manheim), Mr. Grass does a great many things most entertainingly: he provides the atmosphere of the harbor, the excitement of the diving, the curious concentratedness of the three years' gap in the lives of the schoolmates at the time when they did not know 'whether they were male or female.'...Apart from the variety of pleasures 'Cat and Mouse' offers, it holds our attention for another reason: at the deepest level, Mr. Grass resumes here the underlying theme of his famous first novel, 'The Tin Drum'--the survival of individual human qualities in this age of wars and state-directed politics."

Stephen Spender, New York Times Book Review, 8/11/1963

Review:

"[A] nearly flawless small novel...."
