Sausage, baked goods, and beer seem to be the most indigenous food. Most of the sausages can be eaten hot or cold such as the frankfurter. A few of the sausages, such as Bratwurst, must be cooked and a few--Schlachtwurst and Touristenwurst--eaten only when cold. Bratwurst was a pork sausage, usually cooked over an open fire.

By combining history and fiction Doctorow allows himself to write a semi-accurate interpretation of the early 1900’s while also being able to strongly express his own biases and opinions of the era. The biggest, and perhaps most important theme Doctorow applies in the novel is social tension, or the battle of the rich versus the poor. Other important the
