Chesterton, Emerson, pretty much anything that isn't fiction, technical manuals, scientific/medical papers, anything at all that has something to do with human memory.

Anyone knows books of this man? [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Günter_Grass]LINK[/url]
I like his books and him, not only because he's also from FSD.

Yeah, I was on a lecture with him last year. :lol:
Very interesting person and very vivid in lecturing. He also discussed afterwards and answered questions and gave autographs. I had to read tin drum in school and I hated it (can't remember why, though :oops: probably cos it was homework; I hated any kind homework, took way too much time from my interests)
But the ideas are very precise and reflective and the graphics are just fabulous! He presentet and recited one of his newer poem-books with watercolours and it all was really great. Loads of fun, as well.
Have some of his books at home, haven't read anything yet though (ie other than random) :cry:

I really regret my Grands are dead :( I could ask them if it was really like in the books? How about life in that FSD? Did they know Grass personally?
And more more more. Maybe it sounds stupid, but Grass's books are for me also kind of old time stories.

Know what you mean. Do you know the poems of Agnes Miegel? Or the memories of Marion Donhoff?
Don't think they knew each other, it's a big town after all...

I know these Autors (read about them) and I think I should know their books more.

Maybe they knew, maybe not, nothing's impossible.

True enough.

There are so many authors who wrote about those old times, ...

Not FSD, but nevertheless: http://www.kng750.kanet.ru/index.htm

Horrible! That's one more reason why I'd like to come back in time: to see how my family lived and how did original Danzig look.
I'm interested in question of assimilation when Danzig became full-Polish. Grass doesn't know, because he didn't come back. I'm interested in this all not so long, maybe I'll find stories about it.

And now I know where are you from. I suspected it's not so far away! :D
