Hillbilly Elegie

Author: J. D. Vance
Publisher: Ullstein Buchverlage
ISBN: 9783843715775
Release Date: 2017-04-07
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Seine Großeltern versuchten, mit Fleiß und Mobilität der Armut zu entkommen und sich in der Mitte der Gesellschaft zu etablieren. Doch letztlich war alles vergeblich. J. D. Vance erzählt die Geschichte seiner Familie — eine Geschichte vom Scheitern und von der Resignation einer ganzen Bevölkerungsschicht. Armut und Chaos, Hilflosigkeit und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: Genau in diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA — entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft, anfällig für populistische Parolen. Früher konnten sich die »Hillbillys«, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter, erhoffen, sich zu Wohlstand zu schuften. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien ihre Familien in eine Abwärtsspirale, in der sie bis heute stecken. Vance gelingt es wie keinem anderen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

Bartleby

Author: Herman Melville
Publisher: WS via PublishDrive
ISBN: 9782378989576
Release Date: 2018-03-06
Genre: Fiction

Ein älterer Rechtsanwalt berichtet als Icherzähler von einem seiner Schreiber namens Bartleby, den er eines Tages in sein von Hochhäusern umstelltes lichtloses Büro in der Wall Street aufnimmt. Bartleby beginnt seine Tätigkeit mit stillem Fleiß und einsiedlerischer Ausdauer. Er kopiert unermüdlich Verträge, lehnt aber zur Überraschung seines Dienstherrn schon bald jede andere Tätigkeit mit den Worten ab: „Ich möchte lieber nicht“, „I would prefer not to“. Bald weigert er sich sogar, Verträge zu kopieren, wohnt aber inzwischen in dem Büro - höflich, freudlos, ohne Freunde und fast ohne zu essen. Der Rechtsanwalt kann oder will ihn nicht gewaltsam aus dem Büro entfernen lassen und auch eine großzügige Abfindung interessiert Bartleby nicht. Wegen eines unerklärlichen Einverständnisses mit Bartleby sieht sich der Rechtsanwalt am Ende gezwungen, selbst aus dem Büro auszuziehen, statt Bartleby vor die Tür zu setzen. Seine Nachmieter - weniger verständnisvoll - lassen Bartleby bald durch die Polizei abführen und in das Gefängnis The Tombs (die Gräber) bringen. Dort verweigert Bartleby sowohl alle Kommunikation und auch alle Nahrung. Der Rechtsanwalt versucht, sich um seinen „Freund“ zu kümmern, aber nach wenigen Tagen stirbt Bartleby an seiner Lebensverweigerung.

Das Wesen der Dinge und der Liebe

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827076540
Release Date: 2013-10-01
Genre: Fiction

Am Ende ihres Lebens wird Alma auf ein großes Jahrhundert zurückblicken. Sie wird in die Aufbruchsphase Amerikas geboren, die Welt wird erforscht und erobert, Altes durch Neues abgelöst. Ihr umtriebiger Vater ist mit Pflanzenhandel reich geworden und der jungen Alma wird es an nichts fehlen, auch nicht an Bildung. Und so wächst sie zwischen den Pflanzen der prächtigen Gewächshäuser heran. Ihre ganze Leidenschaft gilt der Natur, und während ihrer Studien, die sie ihr ganzes Leben begleiten, gelingen ihr ähnlich revolutionäre Einsichten, wie sie dann Charles Darwin der Welt vorführen wird. Doch Alma selbst zweifelt an ihren Erkenntnissen. Gibt es eine wissenschaftliche Erklärung, warum sich der Mensch nach Liebe sehnt? Was ist Liebe überhaupt? Warum sind wir selbstlos und uneigennützig, wie ihre Adoptivschwester Prudence, die schon früh sich für die Befreiung der Sklaven einsetzt? Alma wird Antworten finden, ebenso wie die Liebe.
