libro autobiografico che abbraccia anche il periodo della scuola; ritratto dell'autore da ragazzo che ricorda sia il personaggio di Casa senza custode, sia quello di Opinioni di un clown; l'ingombro del cattolicesimo come un'ossessione mentre il nazismo prende il potere, prepara la guerra e mette su tutto l'apparato di condizionamento e propaganda. i personaggi hanno forse poco spessore, non sono sufficientemente delineati; ma amche il protagonista risulta schiacciato dentro il racconto e questo ne esalta la gravità

Known for his more famous titles Billiards at Half-Past Nine, The Clown, and Group Portrait with Lady, among others, Heinrich Böll details his high school years set against the impending backdrop of Nazism in this short memoir. Böll came from a family that though not Jewish, was a feverishly anti-Nazi one living on the cusp of the party’s full power. Living in poverty as a consequence of rejecting the political enthusiasm sweeping Germany, Böll’s family lived dangerously on the edge, splurging on books and other luxuries while struggling to make ends meet. “We were crazy enough to buy books and to read them”, he humorously writes, reminiscing the teenage years when he quite literally ducked Hitler’s campaigns with his education (86).

What’s to Become of the Boy? is a most peculiar memoir — extremely short and witty, it articulates the necessity of “ordinary writing” as a form of literature amongst history books and war memoirs. Böll’s attitude against Nazism is unapologetic; a fact that remains even when his memory fail him, for he admits to writing from pure memory, having “no notes or jottings to resort to”, forty years after the fact (13). Weaving crisp humor — “was [the sinus condition] really Nazi-induced? It may well have been, for I was also allergic to the Nazis” — with self-reflection, Böll offers a modest and surprisingly unruffled memoir of a teenager living his days in a Germany that had Nazism at its heels (65).

Another book I bought for myself on Mother's Day, from a little shop in Ann Arbor specializing in well-preserved first editions. I picked this up hoping for hints on how to live in a time when all around you seem consumed by power and hate and scapegoating. What I got was a somewhat disjointed memoir of a man looking back at his teen years from many years distant. It was as much of a memoir of the ways memory deceives and disorders and lumps impossible things together as it was a memoir of coming of age during the rise of the Nazi party.

It's very stream-of-consciousness and rambly. And while that did often leave me wishing for more context or thoroughness, it did pretty effectively convey that for the most part, life just goes on. It's hard to see the context when you're living that context every day. How much time can you spend wondering what's to become of the country, or the world, when the question of "What's to become of you?" is so uncertain.

But this book isn't going to connect the dots for you. If you want to derive any meaning from it, you're going to have to do the work. ( )

libro rescata los años en que Boll asistio al colegio bajo el régimen nazi. ( )
  pedrolopez | Apr 17, 2013 |
Heinrich Böll beschreibt in diesen Erinnerungen skizzenhaft seine letzten Schuljahre in der Zeit zwischen 1933 und 1937 unter den Nationalsozialisten. Weder wird dabei eine umfassende Darstellung der Verhältnisse gegeben noch Objektivität oder Repräsentativität vorgegaukelt. Stattdessen steht bewusst Subjektives im Vordergrund. Da geht es nicht nur um Nazis, sondern auch um Dostojewski. Die Klarheit über den kommenden Krieg mischt sich mit der Unklarheit über die eigene Zukunft. Vieles wird nur angedeutet, manches künstlerisch zugespitzt. Hier hat nicht irgendjemand seine Erinnerungen an Nazideutschland zu Papier gebracht hat, sondern ein Literat. Seiner Ablehnung der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie fügt Böll den sprachlichen Widerwillen gegen Hitlers Mein Kampf hinzu. Der Autor hat den Humor nicht gescheut bei der Beschreibung einer Zeit, die üblicherweise mit betroffener Miene kommentiert wird. Das Ergebnis wirkt sehr aufrichtig. ( )
