This book discusses all of Drrenmatt's major works - novels, stories, radio-plays, stage-plays, essays, lectures, speeches and artworks - and places him in context as a major contributor to the European cultural scene. The genesis and fortunes of each work are fully charted and reinterpreted, with lavish quotations from the original texts, in light of the author's 40-year research into Drrenmatt's art.
