Abstract:

"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 on London's streets." "Wolfy observes it all with a sharp eye; the bafflement of his English neighbours at the odd, secretive nature of his Jewish family and their comical habits as they reluctantly learn to stop being 'aliens' and discover England through blitz, evacuation, menial work, school reports, team sports and Christmas. For Wolfy everything is new and exciting. He is a success as a budding Englishman. He lives near Arsenal Football Club, practises ballroom dancing with the help of the BBC and, of course, he is getting ready for girls."--BOOK JACKET.
