9780070064157: Irish Journal. (McGraw-Hill Paperbacks)

In IRISH JOURNAL, Heinrich Boll the celebrated novelist becomes Heinrich Boll the relatively obscure traveler, touring Ireland in the mid-1950s with his wife and children. While time may stand still in Irish pubs, Boll does not, and his descriptions of his various travels throughout Ireland are as vivid and compelling today as they were over 40 years ago.

About the Author:

In 1972, Heinrich Böll became the first German to win the Nobel Prize for literature since Thomas Mann in 1929. Born in Cologne, in 1917, Böll was reared in a liberal Catholic, pacifist family. Drafted into the Wehrmacht, he served on the Russian and French fronts and was wounded four times before he found himself in an American prison camp. After the war he enrolled at the University of Cologne, but dropped out to write about his shattering experiences as a soldier. His first novel, The Train Was on Time, was published in 1949, and he went on to become one of the most prolific and important of post-war German writers. His best-known novels include Billiards at Half-Past Nine (1959), The Clown (1963), Group Portrait with Lady (1971), and The Safety Net (1979). In 1981 he published a memoir, What’s to Become of the Boy? or: Something to Do with Books. Böll served for several years as the president of International P.E.N. and was a leading defender of the intellectual freedom of writers throughout the world. He died in June 1985.
