German author of novels, short stories and essays awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1972. He was the leading chronicler and critic of West German society from WW II. His disillusionment was apparent in his early work, which described the stresses of postwar Germany. Boll's disillusionment was also apparent through his strong sense of ethical responsibility of authorship and critical attitude toward social institutions. His writing style was plain and accessible, and his books were translated into many languages.
Böll died at home on 16 July 1985, in Langenbroich. He was 67.
