This books tells the story of an Austrian cook, Teta, who attempts to buy herself into heaven in a round-about way by paying for her nephew's clerical education. Teta assumes that when her nephew becomes a priest, his grateful prayers will prove her salvation. Neither her plans, nor her nephew, turn out as she'd expected.
