Germany Guenter Grass

FILE - In this May 29, 2011 file photo German Nobel literature laureate Guenter Grass is pictured in Berlin, Germany. Grass is expected to return home within days after being admitted to hospital for what his secretary called a routine examination. He was admitted to a Hamburg hospital Monday, less than two weeks after his poem criticizing Israel triggered a storm of criticism. Grass' secretary Hilke Ohsoling told German news agency dapd Tuesday, April 17, 2012, that the 84-year-old's admission was previously planned. (AP Photo/dapd, Sebastian Willnow, File)
