Meisterhafte Stories voller Lebenslust Wenige Tage nach ihrem Yale-Abschluss starb Marina Keegan bei einem Autounfall. Sie war ein Ausnahmetalent, das der Welt brillante Texte voller Lebenslust hinterließ. Selbstbewusst und authentisch schrieb sie über Themen, die sie wie viele junge Erwachsene beschäftigten: Liebe, Lust, Eifersucht, Selbstzweifel, Geborgenheit, Ablehnung, Familie und Zukunft. Marina Keegans Stories und Essays vereinen schwerelosen, sensiblen und mitreißenden Optimismus mit ungeheurer literarischer Reife: hoffnungsvoll, wild und melancholisch. Man liest sich atemlos, lachend und mit Tränen in den Augen durch das ganze fulminante Buch.

Großartige Essays von Zadie Smith, »einer der wichtigsten literarischen Stimmen unserer Zeit« (Die Welt). Zadie Smith ist nicht nur Autorin vieler hochgelobter Romane, sondern sie brilliert auch besonders in dieser kurzen Form, den Essays. Der vorliegende Band zeigt sie politischer denn je, denn Zadie Smith hat viel zu sagen über die zunehmend bedrohliche Verfasstheit der Welt und der Gesellschaft und bezieht sehr persönlich Stellung. Die Essays sind in fünf Kategorien unterteilt, und alle haben es in sich: »In der Welt« versammelt die politischen Essays, und gerade ihre Gedanken zum Brexit und zu Trump sind vielschichtig und erhellend, authentisch und engagiert. Die Kapitel »Im Publikum«, »Im Museum«, »Im Bücherregal« und »Freiheiten« erzählen uns ihre Sicht auf kulturelle Ereignisse oder persönlich Erlebtes und geben dabei immer ganz viel über sie selbst preist. Da sie sich mit schlechter Politik, guten Büchern, amerikanischen Rappern, Facebook und alten Meistern ähnlich gut auskennt, schreibt sie mit leichter Hand und mal böse, mal bewundernd Essays von besonderer Qualität, die uns die Welt schärfer sehen lassen. Ein Muss für jeden politisch denkenden Leser!

Siebzehn Berührungen mit dem Tod

Von Anfang an bestimmt der Tod ihr Leben: als Maggie O'Farrell im Alter von 8 Jahren beinah an einer unbekannten Virusinfektion starb. Als sie mit 15 aus Übermut und Freiheitsdrang einen törichten Fehler beging. Als sie in der Idylle des Lake District eine zutiefst verstörende Begegnung hatte. Oder als sie in einer unterbesetzten Klinik mit inkompetentem Personal bei der Geburt ihrer ersten Tochter fast gestorben wäre. An den unterschiedlichsten Orten, zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten lenkte der Tod Maggie O'Farrells Leben. Ihre tiefgründige, außergewöhnliche Geschichte stellt existenzielle Fragen: Wie würde ich handeln, wenn ich in tödliche Gefahr geriete? Was stünde für mich auf dem Spiel? Und, nicht zuletzt, wer würde ich danach sein? »Ich bin, ich bin, ich bin« ist ein Buch, das man mit einem neuen Gefühl der Verletzlichkeit aus der Hand legt, mit dem Gefühl, dass jeder neue Herzschlag zählt.
