AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Edgecombe examines the novels Solid Mandala by Patrick White and Blechtrommel by Gunter Grass. He argues that Arthur's dance in Solid Mandala has been inspired by Die Blechtrommel, a novel that most emphatically does mix the documentary and the fantastical. He shares that White has borrowed the procedure but managed to escape its consequences.' (Publication summary)
