Book summary

On the day of his third birthday the main character, Oskar Matzerath, decides to stop growing. The same day he receives his first tin drum, which will be with him as he travels around Europe. He works as an artist's model, enrolls in a troupe of traveling musicians, deals in the black market, and becomes a leader of a group of anarchists. the drum will be the key to all Oskar's memories, even when some time after the war he is confined to a mental institution convicted of a murder he did not commit.

Blurb in Spanish:
El día de su tercer cumpleaños es un fecha determinante en la vida de Oscar, el pequeño que no quería crecer. No sólo es el día en que toma la decisión de dejar crecer, sino que recibe su primer tambor de hojalata, objeto que habrá de convertirse en compañero inseparable para el resto de sus días. La crítica mordaz, la ironía despiadada, el espectacular sentido del humor y la libertad creadora con que Günter Grass construye esta obra maestra convierten a "El tambor de hojalata" en uno de los títulos más deatacados de la historia de la literatura.
