Stories are told. Characters wander in and out. Koljaiczek as a known arsonist is forced to assume the identity of a dead man.
Even so, it is not enough and facing exposure he flees, most probably to his death by drowning, or possibly, and very unlikely, to a new life in America.
In the timber trade with Canada. His story quickly becomes complicated as his mother marries the grocer Alfred Matzerrath, but resumes her romance with her cousin Jan, leaving Oskar with two fathers.

As a baby he was already advanced. There it hangs, brand-new, zigzagged white and red, on my tummy.
There I am, self-assured, my face solemn and resolute, my drumsticks crossed upon the tin. There I am in my striped sweater…There my hair stands, like a brush ready for action atop my head, there, mirrored in each blue eye, a will to power that needs no followers.
There I am back then, in a stance I found no reason to abandon. There and then I decided, there I declared, there I decreed, that I would never be a politician and most certainly not a grocer, that I would make a point instead of remaining as I was — and so I did, remained that size, kept that attire, for years to come. Her death is the first of many. In a novel that never becomes sentimental Grass achieves moments of unexpected beauty.
