Österreichischer Autor (1890-1945). - Der nicht zuletzt durch die Verfilmung von 1958 berühmt gewordene Roman aus dem Jahr 1939 erzählt die Geschichte der Herrschaftsköchin Teta Linek.

Als sie nach 30 Jahren erkennt, dass sie schamlos hintergangen wurde, bricht für sie eine Welt zusammen. Erst kurz vor ihrem Tod findet sich eine versöhnliche Lösung.
