Himmler's cook

Himmler's cook

Giesbert, Franz-Olivier, 1949- author; Bell, Anthea, translator

Aged 105, Rose has endured more than her fair share of hardships - the Armenian genocide, the Nazi regime, and the delirium of Maoism. Yet somehow, despite all the suffering, Rose never loses her joie de vivre. Quirky and eccentric, 'Himmler's Cook' is a hilarious picaresque tale of survival, as Giesbert depicts Rose's unique life experiences - cook for Himmler, confidante to Hitler, and friend of Simone de Beauvoir. The novel tells the epic tale of an inspiring, resilient Marseillaise chef who embodies the sentiment of what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger
