An inventive and sardonic "portrait" of the effects of Nazi Germany on a small group of people who lived there during the war. The focal point is Leni Pfeiffer, in pursuit of whose history Boll's imaginary "Author" interviews a vast number of characters who at one time or another have known her - among them are the successful, the failures, the conformists, the nonconformists, opportunists, eccentrics - all drawn in dazzling detail and bringing to the surface both their normal and their bizarre ways of life. Translated into English from the German by Leila Vennewitz.

(Key Words: Heinrich Boll, Novels, Nobel Prize Winners, Fiction, Nazis, Germany, German Literature, Leila Vennewitz, World War II).
