Lenz had already published several well-received novels before he reached a wider audience with what is regarded by many as his most important work, the novel "The German Lesson.'' Published in 1968, it tells the story of Siggi Jepsen, a young man in a school for juvenile delinquents who is required to write an essay on "The Joys of Duty.'' The essay soon grows into a book, an aching recollection of how his father, a German police officer in a small northern coastal town during the war, became obsessed with enforcing an order to stop an artist -- one of the officer's old friends and a beloved mentor of Siggi -- from painting.
