Cat and Mouse is Nobel laureate Gunter Grass' second novel, published in 1961.
A group of Danzig schoolboys spend the 1940 summer SWIMMING out to the wreck in the harbour.
While they lie around on the exposed hull, scraping off and chewing gull droppings, Malhke, with his huge Adam's apple and devotion to the Virgin, dives inside the ship to find and bring back whatever he can.
Mahlke seems destined to be one of life's clowns, but soon he will do something that amazes everyone who knows him.
