First published in Germany in 1972 as "Aus dem Tagebuch einer Schnecke", Nobel laureate Günter Grass tells his family, imaginatively as well as factually, why he felt impelled to give himself unsparingly, body and mind, to the uses of politics. In 1969, Grass gave close to one hundred election speeches for Willy Brandt's Social Democratic Party.
