Take a bleak statistic China has a population of 13 billion 996 million in 1980 when Grass novel was written a figure that is rapidly increasing Germany has a shrinking population of 81 million Where can a novel go with that fact Into head dizzying complexities and a new kind of fiction if G nter Grass is the novelist He always believed German fiction had to start again after 1945 from a zero baseline All the literary foundations had been rotted by Hitler The past must be overcome said Grass But without the past where does a writer start In Headbirths one s first reaction is that Grass isn t writing what one would regard as a novel at all That privilege we apprehend no longer exists for novelists of his culturally shattered background What he offers is a journal of 1979 80 with some fanciful digressionsFloating in this narrative primal soup is an extraordinarily frank personal essay although not uite frank enough to reveal that he served in the Waffen SS a fact that only emerged in 2006 By a dubious stroke of luck the novelist was born in 1927 But the current purge of an older unluckier generation of German writers condemned to silence by their Nazi pasts leads him to speculate on his own career had little G nter been born ten years earlier in 1917 In an eerie bio bibliography of this tainted self he provides an oeuvre which runs from the late Expressionist rhapsodic poetry of his Hitler Youth period through the post Stalingrad poetry of lasting significance to the fresh start mode of de Nazified 1947 All of which pertains to Grass s main literary historical datum that the ideology of National Socialism has laid waste the German language as extensively and less reparably than bombing laid waste the country s cities If the German writer wants a tradition he has to make it up out of his head As regards what s bothering Grass s head most in this novel it s the politics of carnalcerebral fertility Creativity During the war the German people had been instructed to breed for the Reich Fuck for the F hrer was not how they put it but what was meant So not to breed is for the post war German an act of freedom But what does that mean for Germany The ultimate freedom is the freedom to think But the Germans are thinking themselves to extinction Falling birthrates confirm that Germany is now Raum ohne Volk as dependent on fast breeding immigrants to keep up the population figures as it is dependent on fast breeding reactors for its power The overarching and non fictional event in the novelnon novel is a tour by Grass and Volker Schl ndorff director of the film of Grass The Tin Drum of various Third World locations Seethingly populous India Java or China are preferred settings for the new film they have vaguely in mind The film never happens But the scenario survives in another strand of the novelThe main line of narrative centres on a model German teacher couple Harm and D rte Peters from Itzehoe Holstein They worry their heads perpetually about whether or not they should have a baby The poor thing might for instance have to grow up in a nuclear powered Germany The Peterses are children of the late 1960s they met in Kiel at a sit in against the Vietnam War or the Springer Press or both Now they are lost souls Rudi Dutschke their student rebel hero is dead drowned in a bath after being shot in the head a head death D rte has grown up to become a member of the FDP Free Democratic Party while Harm belongs to the SPD Social Democratic Party They now vote like headless chickens A residue of student protest romanticism takes them on an Asian trip with Sisyphus Holidays parallel to that of their creators But Grass couple exists only in potentia unjelled The Peterses never happened except somewhere in the heads of the two German creative artistsWhat then did Grass and Schl ndorff give birth to Or abort What when all the cards are in play is important to create a novel or a film out of your head or a child out of your loins To create literature or population The future will tell

I wish I could give half stars but based on readability story and prose I d give it a 35 However the half star would go to synchronicityI bought this book 3 years ago at a used book store in Toronto I live in Brooklyn now and have looked at the book several times since its purchase and my move but because I hate both the title and the cover it never uite made it to the top of my to read pile I thought the word headbirths and the drawing of the fetus was a bit much but I guess it isn t now that I know how much about babies this book turned out to be However I needed a short book to read before my trip so this was the best candidate Boy was I surprised I picked up this book 2 weeks before my own trip to India I also picked it up a day after having watched the One Child Nation documentary on Prime about China s One Child PolicyThis book was fun to read for several reasons1 It was fun because I read it now in the first weeks of 2020 way on the other side of the 80s I was born in 1988 but because I lived in Germany for 3 years I know who won the election Grass s characters fret over and I know that something much worse can happen Trump is President I was barely alive when the wall fell but fall it did and I have lived in Berlin post reunification I know for example that Grass s argument that the East and West Germany were still of one culture one country divided is either false or it changed between 1979 and 1989 stalgie is real and I witnessed its bittersweet impact on East Berliners The Turkish G ste stayed in Germany and have established their own German subculture I saw that too The world s population is over 7 billion now and I know what countries like China have done since around this book was written to control the population China introduced its One Child Policy in 1978 I know also how that backfired after having worked with Chinese in Toronto who were all products of the One Child Policy and all lamented at the most superficial level not being allowed to have siblings I can only imagine how their sterilized mothers felt It was fun to read the worries of a Westerner living in a world that seemed to be too uickly changing And I guess it was then comparatively uick find Kabul in an atlas Piece of cake today the war on terror put Afghanistan on the map for everyone The real struggle today is finding an atlas2 This book was fun to read because it was my first G nther Grass and I loved the way he played with time and place I love a self aware piece of art3 It was also fun to read a piece that so plainly expressed someone s opinions in a work of fiction I know what Grass fears of the world I know the then felt opinion of slum tourism I know the then felt opinion of birth control and family planning Why I might not read this book again 1 The translation wasn t horrible but let s just say I could tell that it was a translation and that it was a translation from the German Sorry Ralph Manheim but if I read another Grass it will be by a different translator2 It s painfully out of date It was fun to read for this reason the same way it s fun to look at an old photo album or yearbook But I don t know if it s worth doing it again3 This may just be Grass s style of prose but I don t know if I can handle living in the neuroses of multiple characters again I felt Harm D rte AND the narrator s worries and it s a bit muchFavorite character the liver sausage
