(From the publisher):
Torn by insecurity and cynicism, washing-machine repairman Walter Fendrich is obsessed with hunger, "the wolf living inside my stomach." The war and wartime shortages haunt him as an insatiable craving for bread, a bottomless desperation for security and gratification of basic needs. One day he finds himself and his world transformed when he meets a woman and discovers that love dispels his cravings as bread never could.
