A supremely weird and masterful work of 20th century fiction. Our hero is Oscar, who has willed himself to look perpetually 3 years old, whose voice can destroy glass, and whose drumming can summon the memories and emotional history of humankind. Set in Poland just before the rise of the Third Reich, The Tin Drum, documents the second world war through the eyes of a child with the mind of an artistic revolutionary rebel. Five stars!
