Pigeon English

Author: Stephen Kelman
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827074348
Release Date: 2011-01-29
Genre: Fiction

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ

Trotzki

Author: Robert Service
Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag
ISBN: 9783518746608
Release Date: 2012-07-02
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Revolutionäres Vorbild, Internationalist und Kosmopolit, Theoretiker, Philosoph, Schriftsteller, Politiker, Liebhaber, Ehemann, Vater, Jude, Feind und verfolgtes Opfer. Leo Trotzki, einer der bedeutendsten politischen Führer der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts, war von schillernder Gestalt. Der 1879 in der Südukraine als Lew Dawidowitsch Bronstein geborene hat den Grundstein zur Gründung der Sowjetunion gelegt, und wird doch immer wieder unterschlagen, wenn die führenden Köpfe der russischen Revolution genannt werden. Zusammen mit Lenin stand er, der Gründer der Roten Armee, 1917 an der Spitze der Oktoberrevolution. Als Volkskommissar war er unter anderem verantwortlich für das Kriegs- und Verlagswesen. Trotzki war nicht nur politischer Führer, sondern auch produktiver Schriftsteller und begnadeter Redner. Fragen nach Kultur und Alltagsleben waren ihm ebenso wichtig wie Politik und Geschichte. Der Aufstieg der Stalinfraktion nach Lenins Tod 1924 führte zu seinem Ausschluß aus den politischen Führungspositionen und schließlich zu seiner Verbannung 1929. Im Jahr 1940 wurde Trotzki in Mexiko-City von einem GPU-Agenten mit einem Eispickel erschlagen. Robert Service, Professor für Russische Geschichte und Spezialist für Russische Revolutionsgeschichte, hat viele Jahre unveröffentlichtes Archivmaterial gesichtet und mit seiner packenden Biographie nicht nur das Bild eines der brillantesten politischen Köpfe der Revolution gezeichnet, sondern sich – unparteiisch und unverfälscht – auch mit der überfälligen Debatte um das Verhältnis zwischen Trotzki und Stalin auseinandergesetzt.

Nach seiner Demission als Polizeioffizier in Burma landet Orwell 1933 in den Slums: bei den Arbeitslosen, Asozialen in Paris, wo er sich als Küchenhilfe in einem Luxusrestaurant verdingt; bei den Pennern von London, mit denen er durch die Gossen und Asyle pilgert.

Tage in Burma

Author: George Orwell
Publisher: Diogenes Verlag AG
ISBN: 9783257602500
Release Date: 2012-11-20
Genre: Fiction

»Orwell kennen die meisten Leser nur als düsteren ›Big Brother‹-Visionär - die wenigsten wissen, daß der Autor einige Jahre als Kolonialbeamter in Burma tätig war. Vor diesem Erfahrungshintergrund entfaltet er die Geschichte eines britischen Diplomaten in einem burmesischen Außenposten. Lesenswert vor allem wegen der Schilderungen der Landeskultur - und George Orwells bitterböser Abrechnung mit der britischen Kolonial-Mentalität.«
