"With the publication of Tomorrow and Yesterday, Heinrich Boll was truly regarded as the spokesman of modern Germany. Boll's novel is the story of a group of families living in a house in Germany. The members of each generation - those who lived through the war, and those conceived and born during its terror - must assess their pasts and their collective futures. This moving story is the crowning achievement of Boll's extraordinary career."--Jacket
The lost honor of Katharina Blum, or, How violence develops and where it can lead by Heinrich Böll( Book )

48 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an era in which journalists will stop at nothing to break a story, Henrich Böll's The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum has taken on heightened relevance. A young woman's association with a hunted man makes her the target of a journalist determined to grab headlines by portraying her as an evil woman. As the attacks on her escalate and she becomes the victim of anonymous threats, Katharina sees only one way out of her nightmare. Turning the mystery genre on its head, the novel begins with the confession of a crime, drawing the reader into a web of sensationalism, character assassination, and the unavoidable eruption of violence."
