The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum by Heinrich Böll

Rating 2 out of 10

I am not a fan of Heinrich Böll

This novel has the form of a police report. As usual with Heinrich Böll the subject matter is a confused mixture of religion (Catholic christianity) and left wing politics. The novel is apparently inspired by the political terrorism of the Red Army Faction in the 1970's Western Germany.
