Das Brot der frühen Jahre; Erzählung by Heinrich Böll( Book )
203 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Walter Fendrich, Hauptfigur dieser Liebesgeschichte in den Wirtschaftswunderjahren, hat eine wechselvolle Geschichte hinter sich. Nach dem Krieg begann er ziellos mehrere Berufsausbildungen, versuchte sich erfolglos als Banklehrling, Tischler und Verkäufer, und auch seine Elektrikerlehre schloß er ohne Begeisterung ab. Schließlich findet er ein einträgliches Auskommen als Waschmaschinen-Mechaniker, ohne jedoch mit seinem Leben zufrieden zu sein. Das ändert sich, als sein Vater ihn in einem Brief bittet, die Tochter eines Kollegen vom Bahnhof abzuholen. Die Begegnung mit der zwanzigjährigen Hedwig, einer flüchtigen Bekannten aus Kindertagen, wird für Walter zum Wendepunkt. Er setzt alles daran, die junge Frau zu gewinnen, und legt dabei eine Entschlossenheit an den Tag, die ihn an seine Kindheit erinnert. Er wuchs auf in ärmlichen Verhältnissen und war von einem gierigen, geradezu zwanghaftem Verlangen nach Brot besessen. Die Hartherzigkeit seiner Umgebung trieb ihn in den Diebstahl, und schließlich ging es Walter nur noch um Geld. Es wurde zum einzigen Lebenszweck, und erst die Macht, mit der ihn die Liebe zu Hedwig erfasst, führt ihn zu lange vergessenen Wertmasstäben zurück

Fendrich, a young man torn by insecurity and despair, obsessed with hunger, finds himself and his world transformed when he becomes involved with the daughter of a high school principal
