As subtle and as delicate as the many feathers depicted through its pages, Of All That Ends is a glorious gift, a final salute true to the singular creativity of the most human, and humane, of artists.
There is a lovely diversity to these pieces… His intelligence and intellectual engagement remain fiercely undimmed.
Catherine Taylor, Financial Times
This beautiful, ironic and often funny final collage of asides and meditations sums up the fabulist’s genius.
Eileen Battersby, Irish Times, Book of the Year
Autumnal, elegiac and tinged with a twilight charm
Boyd Tonkin, The Arts Desk
Of All That Ends radiates a burst of his primitive energy and his subtle shrewdness, using words and pencil lines as a remedy, an antidote to the factual world that we objectify and iconise… Laced with black humour.
Julian Evans, Daily Telegraph
Grass’ writing…is uncluttered and haunting… Tiny snapshots of morality more insightful than most novels could dream of, forming a work of real emotional substance. A fitting requiem for a true great.
UK Press Syndication
A melancholic anthology of musings, poems, and sketches, delicate in both form and content as they trace the edges of ageing, death and the world we live in.
Michael Anderson, Irish Examiner
