The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum by Heinrich Boll
Penguin paperback. Interesting novel. Includes a theme of revenge on a reporter spreading half truths and slander.
This is one of High Valley Books suggested Emergency Paperbacks...which come in a protective plastic sleeve (and with one of our homemade bookmarks), to be kept in the handbag or man-purse for those moments when a Book is Needed.
