Murray McLellan | 5 comments Looking for book that I read in the late 1980's of a disabled boy in Nazi Germany. I do not remember if it was based on a true story or if it was historical fiction. It seemed to be written for youth. I cannot remember the name or the author.

Murray McLellan | 5 comments That does not sound like the title. Though I think the name of the main character was Gunter or something similar.

Here's a detailed plot summary (with spoilers) of The Tin Drum by Günter Grass - Nóinín's suggestion:

Murray McLellan | 5 comments Yea, The Tin Drum is definitely not the book. The book I read was more of a children's novel (middle years).

message 7: by Murray (new)

Murray McLellan | 5 comments Dreaming in Black & White has some similar themes for sure - but it was written much more recently. I read the book I am trying to find at least 15 years before Jung's book was written. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Murray McLellan | 5 comments I believe I have found it! Bright Valley of Love by Edna Hong!

Joseph Marquis | 224 comments Glad you found it! I would have searched fiction for an eternity with no luck before realizing you also said it could be a true story.
Good find!
