BERLIN - German novelist Guenter Grass, the Nobel Prize-winning author of works such as The Tin Drum, has died at the age of 87, a foundation in his name said on Monday.

Grass, with his trademark drooping mustache, was born the Baltic port of Danzig, now Gdansk in Poland, in 1927 and much of his fiction was set in the city.
