Jojo und seine kleine Schwester Kayla leben bei ihren Großeltern Mam and Pop an der Golfküste von Mississippi. Leonie, ihre Mutter, kümmert sich kaum um sie. Sie nimmt Drogen und arbeitet in einer Bar. Wenn sie high ist, wird Leonie von Visionen ihres toten Bruders heimgesucht, die sie quälen, aber auch trösten. Mam ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt, und der stille und verlässliche Pop versucht, den Haushalt aufrecht zu erhalten und Jojo beizubringen, wie man erwachsen wird. Als der weiße Vater von Leonies Kindern aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, packt sie ihre Kinder und eine Freundin ins Auto und fährt zur »Parchment Farm«, dem staatlichen Zuchthaus, um ihn abzuholen. Eine Reise voller Gefahr und Hoffnung. Jesmyn Ward erzählt so berührend wie unsentimental von einer schwarzen Familie in einer von Armut und tief verwurzeltem Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Was bedeuten familiäre Bindungen, wo sind ihre Grenzen? Wie bewahrt man Würde, Liebe und Achtung, wenn man sie nicht erfährt? Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt ist ein großer Roman, getragen von Wards so besonderer melodischer Sprache, ein zärtliches Familienporträt, eine Geschichte von Hoffnungen und Kämpfen, voller Anspielungen auf das Alte Testament und die Odyssee.

Wer in Deutschland in seiner Freizeit, auf der Arbeit oder zu Verteidigungszwecken auf legale Weise ein Messer bei sich tragen möchte, ist durch das Waffengesetz strengen Vorgaben unterworfen. Denn aus Sicht des Verwenders soll es sich verdeckt tragen lassen, um kein Aufsehen zu erregen. Bei Bedarf soll es sich aber möglichst leicht ziehen lassen. Und es soll groß und stabil genug sein, um Brennholz spalten, ein Seil durchschneiden oder schlimmstenfalls sich auch damit verteidigen zu können. Dazu wäre ein einhändig zu öffnendes, feststellbares Klappmesser ideal. Leider ist jedoch genau dies ein Gegenstand, den zu führen das Gesetz den Menschen verbietet. Allerdings erlaubt der Gesetzgeber das Tragen von mindestens ebenso gut geeigneten Modellen: Feststehende Messer bis zu einer Klingenlänge von 12 Zentimetern. Dieses Buch führt seine Leser in die vielfältigen verdeckten Trageweisen für feststehende Messer ein. Dabei zeigt es althergebrachte Methoden ebenso wie neue Tragesysteme, die genau zu diesem Zweck entworfen wurden. Insbesondere wendet es sich aber auch an Bastler, die mit wenigen Handgriffen bestehende Scheiden umbauen oder ausgefallene Tragesysteme improvisieren können. Dafür ist nicht mehr handwerkliches Geschick erforderlich, als nötig ist, um ein Stück Schnur abzuschneiden oder einen Knopf anzunähen. Mithilfe der beschriebenen Methoden lässt sich in nahezu jeder Lebenslage ein feststehendes Messer mitführen.

This provocative book debunks the myth that American gun culture was intentionally created by gun makers and demonstrates that gun ownership and use have been a core part of American society since our colonial origins. • Proves that widespread gun ownership and gun violence existed in early America • Argues that revisionist claims of the last two decades about American gun culture are false • Provides a detailed account of how Revolutionary American governments contracted for guns • Shows how the American gun industry met private demand and led to an entirely new way of making almost all of the manufactured goods we take for granted today
