9781899235384: Wolfy and the Strudelbakers

An enchanting blend of humour and crisp observation in a story of Jewish exiles in Britain. Set in wartime and post-war England Wolfy and the Strudelbakers is a comic take on the disaster zone of displacement and exile. Wolfy lives with the ‘strudelbakers’—his super-critical aunt and melancholy uncle—in the surrealistic world of refugees granted shelter from persecution. He is an expert at living in two cultures—the chaotic, dark world of uprooted people desperately hanging on to their Jewish religion—and the vitality, variety and temptation he finds in London’s streets.

"A most impressive novel full of narrative power and unforgettable description."—Jewish Chronicle

"The delight is in the comic detail, even when the matter is serious."—The Times
