Guenter Grass set for quick hospital release
BERLIN (AP) - Nobel literature laureate Guenter Grass is expected to return home within days after being admitted to hospital for what his secretary called a routine examination.
Grass’ secretary Hilke Ohsoling told German news agency dapd Tuesday that the 84-year-old’s admission was previously planned.
“We expect that he will be back at home at the end of the week,” she said.
In “What Must Be Said,” published April 4, Grass criticized what he called Western hypocrisy over Israel’s nuclear program and labeled the country a threat to “already fragile world peace” over its stance regarding Iran.
