Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | Stories by | This collection of fifteen stories deals with the strategies of emotional survival and offers sharp, brittle, and intelligent looks at staying alive, at how to manage a life truly one's own, and how to resist becoming a victim. | Nach dem großen Erfolg von "Die Ernte" erscheint nun mit "Was uns treibt" ein neuer Band mit Storys der neben Alice Munro und Lydia Davis wohl meist verehrten Erzählerin englischer Sprache. "Du lernst, allen Ballast zu streichen. Stellst dir bei jedem Satz vor, wie deine Leser nur nach dem ersten Grund suchen, dich wieder fortzulegen. Der Trick?", sagt Amy Hempel über ihre Zeit als Journalistin: "Ihnen keine Gründe zum Aufgeben zu lassen!" 15 atemlose, heimtückische Short Stories, die deutlich machen, weshalb Hempel vielen als markanteste Erzählerin seit Raymond Carver gilt - und was sie zum Idol und besten Feindin der Generation X gemacht hat: "Was uns treibt" (Reasons to Live) war ihr Debütband und ist in den USA eine seit 30 Jahren geliebte, tiefschwarz schraffierte CD auf dem Armaturenbrett eines Kleinwagens, den man verscherbeln, aufgeben, schrotten will. Ein Freudenfeuer. Eine warme Decke, den Kindern gestohlen. 15 liebevolle Tritte in den Magen. Hempel's now-classic collection of short fiction is peopled by complex characters who have discovered that their safety nets are not dependable and who must now learn to balance on the threads of wit, irony, and spirit. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 135 gr | 202x134x8 mm | 144 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780060976729
