A decent introduction to Heinrich Boll's work, in the decade following the end of WWII. These are (very) short stories, only a couple of which are about soldiers returning home. The predominant theme is the quiet sadness, mostly in Cologne, of ordinary folks trying to rebuild lives and a country after a devastating war. Boll was one of the leading writers in Gruppe 47 grappling with the war, effects, participation in, and responsibility. Too bad he's so little known today.
