It is well-known that Currywurst a popular snack consisting of a German hot dog with spicy sauce emerged at the end of the war.   This fascinating novel posits a Frau Brücker as the inventor of this famous snack. 

The novel is written in the form of seven visits by the writer to an old peoples' home where the now elderly Frau Brücker lives.  The story takes off on its own as the story gets going, only occasionally coming back to the narrative framework.   She relates her life from the dying days of the war, in Hamburg, in 1945 when she met up with  Hermann Bremer, a sailor, who deserts and stays in her flat.   Although both married, the two conduct an affair but split up at the end of the war.

Following Bremer's departure, the 43 year old was to make the sale of her invention the Currywurst her trade mark.  When her husband returns from the war she throws him out and takes part in building a society that works differently from the one it preceded.

The novel is a very interesting interweaving of characters with external events and very accessible for sixth formers.  Probably also a reason for cooking German street food to give the right ambiance!
