Nobel Prize Laureate Grass' tale of German art history professor Alexander Reschke and Polish art restorer Alexandra Piatkowska meet on the way to the cemetery in Gdansk Poland and quickly find they have much in common. They found a society to allow people expatriated after World War II to be buried in their native land. Their good intentions are overwhelmingly successful and they find themselves building resorts and gold courses on the would-be burial ground ; Etching.
