Synopsis:

Here is what German author/narrator Uwe Timm uncovers about a popular German sidewalk food, curried sausage. Convinced the delicacy did not originate in Berlin, Timm tracks down its creator, one Lena Brucker, now living in a retirement home. Thus the tale of how curried sausage came to be is the romantic story of Lena Brucker's life.


Review:

"Uwe Timm apears to share Laura Esquivel's faith in the mystical connections among gastronomy, passion and fate....It's a wise and beguiling reminder to pay close attention to the world, and to study the history lessons that are sizzling away in our skillets."

Francine Prose, New York Times Book Review, (6/11/96)

Review:

"The Invention of Curried Sausage, a witty sharp-voiced and moving bit of semi-fiction--sentimental, too, in places--lets air into an oxygen-starved zone of the past."

Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times Book Review, (6/4/95)

Book Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 1998. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 170 x 119 mm. Brand New Book. The Invention of Curried Sausage is an ingenious, revealing, and delightful novel about the invention of a popular German sidewalk food. Uwe Timm has heard claims that currywurst first appeared in Berlin in the 1950s, but he seems to recall having eaten it much earlier, as a boy in his native Hamburg, at a stand owned and operated by Lena Brucker. He decides to check it out. Although the discovery of curried sausage is eventually explained, it is its prehistory - about how Lena Brucker met, seduced and held captive a German deserter in Hamburg, in April, 1945, just before the war s end-that is the tastiest part. Timm draws gorgeous details from Lena s fine-grained recollections, and the pleasure these provide her and the reader supply the tale s real charm. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780811213684
