While working on the translation of Heinrich Boll, I became acutely aware of the responsibilities of a translator. I have tried to carry over Boll's content, style, underlying attitudes, and the modern German culture as he presents them. Word selection is, indeed, an awesome task when trying to preserve the essence of mood, tone, diction, idiomatic expression, irony, paradox, etc.
