Zvi Jagendorf’s wonderful comic novel about a young Jewish refugee in wartime London is an enchanting blend of sharp humour and crisp observation.
Wolfy, a young Jewish refugee, has escaped to wartime London to live with the ‘strudelbakers’ - his super-critical aunt and melancholy uncle. An expert at living in two worlds - the chaotic and dark world of displaced people and the world of vitality and temptation he finds in the London streets - Wolfy discovers an England that is both exciting and unusual.
