Essays über Literatur, Kino, Kunst, Familie und alles dazwischen Zadie Smith wirft in diesem Band einen Blick auf das Leben - in kultureller und persönlicher Hinsicht. Ihre leidenschaftlichen und präzisen Essays handeln von großer Literatur und schlechten Filmen, von ihrer eigenen Familie und der Welt der Philosophie, von Comedians und Diven. Wie hat George Eliots Liebesleben ihr Schreiben beeinflusst? Warum hat Kafka morgens um fünf geschrieben? Worin ähneln sich Barack Obama und Eliza Doolittle? Kann man bei einer Oscar-Verleihung overdressed sein? Was ist italienischer Feminismus? Wenn Roland Barthes den Autor getötet hat, kann Nabokov ihn dann wieder zum Leben erwecken? Und ist ´´Date Movie´´ der schlechteste Film aller Zeiten? Journalistische Arbeiten im weitesten Sinne: vom Feinsten, intelligent und lustig, ein Geschenk für Leser. Ein Essay ist mehr als eine Kolumne, in der jemand eine Meinung kundtut: Hier wird er zu einem hellen Raum, in dem frei gedacht wird.

The Golden House
9,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When powerful real-estate tycoon Nero Golden immigrates to the States under mysterious circumstances, he and his three adult children assume new identities, taking ´Roman´ names, and move into a grand mansion in downtown Manhattan. Arriving shortly after the inauguration of Barack Obama, he and his sons, each extraordinary in his own right, quickly establish themselves at the apex of New York society. The story of the Golden family is told from the point of view of their Manhattanite neighbour and confidant, René, an aspiring filmmaker who finds in the Goldens the perfect subject. René chronicles the undoing of the house of Golden: the high life of money, of art and fashion, a sibling quarrel, an unexpected metamorphosis, the arrival of a beautiful woman, betrayal and murder, and far away, in their abandoned homeland, some decent intelligence work. Invoking literature, pop culture, and the cinema, Rushdie spins the story of the American zeitgeist over the last eight years, hitting every beat: the rise of the birther movement, the Tea Party, Gamergate and identity politics; the backlash against political correctness; the ascendency of the superhero movie, and, of course, the insurgence of a ruthlessly ambitious, narcissistic, media-savvy villain wearing make-up and with coloured hair. In a new world order of alternative truths, Salman Rushdie has written the ultimate novel about identity, truth, terror and lies. A brilliant, heartbreaking realist novel that is not only uncannily prescient but shows one of the world´s greatest storytellers working at the height of his powers.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? A modern American epic set against the panorama of contemporary politics and culture-a hurtling, page-turning mystery that is equal parts The Great Gatsby and The Bonfire of the Vanities NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR ? PBS ? HARPER´S BAZAAR ? ESQUIRE ? FINANCIAL TIMES ? THE TIMES OF INDIA On the day of Barack Obama´s inauguration, an enigmatic billionaire from foreign shores takes up residence in the architectural jewel of ´´the Gardens,´´ a cloistered community in New York´s Greenwich Village. The neighborhood is a bubble within a bubble, and the residents are immediately intrigued by the eccentric newcomer and his family. Along with his improbable name, untraceable accent, and unmistakable whiff of danger, Nero Golden has brought along his three adult sons: agoraphobic, alcoholic Petya, a brilliant recluse with a tortured mind; Apu, the flamboyant artist, sexually and spiritually omnivorous, famous on twenty blocks; and D, at twenty-two the baby of the family, harboring an explosive secret even from himself. There is no mother, no wife; at least not until Vasilisa, a sleek Russian expat, snags the septuagenarian Nero, becoming the queen to his king-a queen in want of an heir. Our guide to the Goldens´ world is their neighbor René, an ambitious young filmmaker. Researching a movie about the Goldens, he ingratiates himself into their household. Seduced by their mystique, he is inevitably implicated in their quarrels, their infidelities, and, indeed, their crimes. Meanwhile, like a bad joke, a certain comic-book villain embarks upon a crass presidential run that turns New York upside-down. Set against the strange and exuberant backdrop of current American culture and politics, The Golden House also marks Salman Rushdie´s triumphant and exciting return to realism. The result is a modern epic of love and terrorism, loss and reinvention-a powerful, timely story told with the daring and panache that make Salman Rushdie a force of light in our dark new age. Praise for The Golden House ´´[A] modern masterpiece . . . telling a story full of wonder and leaving you marveling at how it ever came out of the author´s head.´´-Associated Press ´´Wildly satiric and yet piercingly real . . . If F. Scott Fitzgerald, Homer, Euripides, and Shakespeare collaborated on a contemporary fall-of-an-empire epic set in New York City, the result would be The Golden House.´´-Poets & Writers ´´A tonic addition to American-no, world!-literature . . . a Greek tragedy with Indian roots and New York coordinates.´´-San Francisco Chronicle

Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

**Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography** ´´Reading this guy on the subject of waves and water is like reading Hemingway on bullfighting; William Burroughs on controlled substances; Updike on adultery. . . . a coming-of-age story, seen through the gloss resin coat of a surfboard.´´-Sports Illustrated Included in President Obama´s 2016 Summer Reading List Barbarian Days is William Finnegan´s memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life. Raised in California and Hawaii, Finnegan started surfing as a child. He has chased waves all over the world, wandering for years through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, Africa. A bookish boy, and then an excessively adventurous young man, he went on to become a distinguished writer and war reporter. Barbarian Days takes us deep into unfamiliar worlds, some of them right under our noses-off the coasts of New York and San Francisco. It immerses the reader in the edgy camaraderie of close male friendships forged in challenging waves. Finnegan shares stories of life in a whites-only gang in a tough school in Honolulu. He shows us a world turned upside down for kids and adults alike by the social upheavals of the 1960s. He details the intricacies of famous waves and his own apprenticeships to them. Youthful folly-he drops LSD while riding huge Honolua Bay, on Maui-is served up with rueful humor. As Finnegan´s travels take him ever farther afield, he discovers the picturesque simplicity of a Samoan fishing village, dissects the sexual politics of Tongan interactions with Americans and Japanese, and navigates the Indonesian black market while nearly succumbing to malaria. Throughout, he surfs, carrying readers with him on rides of harrowing, unprecedented lucidity. Barbarian Days is an old-school adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, a social history, a literary road movie, and an extraordinary exploration of the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art. Praise for Barbarian Days: ´´Without a doubt, the finest surf book I´ve ever read . . . But on a more fundamental level, Barbarian Days offers a clear-eyed vision of American boyhood. Like Jon Krakauer´s Into the Wild, it is a sympathetic examination of what happens when literary ideas of freedom and purity take hold of a young mind and fling his body out into the far reaches of the world.´´-The New York Times Magazine ´´Incandescent . . . I´d sooner press this book upon on a nonsurfer, in part because nothing I´ve read so accurately describes the feeling of being stoked or the despair of being held under. . . . [But] it´s also about a writer´s life and, even more generally, a quester´s life, more carefully observed and precisely rendered than any I´ve read in a long time.´´-Los Angeles Times
