Description
In 1979, just a few years after he won the Nobel Prize, Heinrich Böll penned this "artful, gripping novel.... The strongest response to modern terrorism by a serious novelist" (Kirkus Reviews). Fritz Tolm has risen to the most powerful position in Germany. With this position, however, comes vulnerability, and threats to Tolm's life are met with the pervasive "safety net" of police protection and surveillance. Trapped in a house they dare not leave, where every visitor is suspect and every object a potential bomb, Tolm and his family wait to discover when and how terrorism will overtake them. "Heinrich Böll never lacked courage," notes Salman Rushdie in his introduction. "When most good German burghers were reacting to the words 'Baader-Meinhof' as if they were the names of Hell's most fearsome demons, Böll attempted to explain, in print, why some of Germany's most brilliant people had chosen the left-hand path of terrorism."
