Book Description München : Goldmann Verlag, 2000. Taschenbuch. Kartoniert. Book Condition: Gut. Erste Auflage dieser Ausgabe.. 1240 (4) Seiten. 20,8 cm. Befriedigender Zustand. Ungelesen. 1 Seite lose. Untere hintere Buchecke minimal gestaucht. "Unterhaltsamer als in William Gaddis' 1953 vollendetem Epos 'Die Fälschung der Welt' hat man das Ringen mit zweitausend Jahren Geistesgeschichte bis dahin nicht zu lesen bekommen." Welt am Sonntag. Das satirische Porträt von nichts weniger als der gesamten modernen Welt einer der wichtigsten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts! Wyatt Gwyon wächst als Priestersohn unter der rigiden Obhut seiner Tante in der Provinz Neuenglands auf und entwickelt ein zeichnerisches Talent. Schließlich landet er Ende der vierziger Jahre im New Yorker Greenwich Village, wo er aus Not zu einem genialen Kunstfälscher wird. Doch er kopiert nicht etwa die alten Meister, sondern erfindet neue 'Originale' und arbeitet damit korrupten Händlern und Hehlern in die Hände. Um ihn herum gibt es ein ganzes Heer an Künstlern, Kunstexperten, Schriftstellern, Geistlichen, Forschern und Politikern, die sich alle in einem Netz aus Lügen an der Fälschung der Welt beteiligen. Mit diesem sprachgewaltigen, amüsant und wild wuchernden Epos, das 1955 in den USA erschien, ist William Gaddis ein großer Wurf gelungen, ein Zeitroman über eine bodenlose, auf Lug, Trug und Schein aufgebaute Welt, ein Paukenschlag von einem Buch, das zu den bedeutendsten Meisterwerken der Literatur zählt und als Schlüsselroman der Moderne gilt. - William Gaddis (1922-1998) zählt mit Don DeLillo, Richard Ford und Thomas Pynchon zu den bedeutendsten amerikanischen Schriftstellern unserer Zeit. Nach dem Studium in Harvard reiste er mehrere Jahre durch Europa, Zentralamerika und Nordafrika und arbeitete an seinem ersten Roman, "Die Fälschung der Welt", die 1955 in Amerika erschien. Die Kritik vermisste das Positive und schickte den Autor in die Wüste. Jahrelang arbeitete Gaddis als Produzent von Lehrfilmen in der Industrie und für das Militär. Erst zwanzig Jahre später, 1975, erschien sein zweiter Roman, "J R", der mit dem NATIONAL BOOK AWARD ausgezeichnet wurde. Es folgten "Die Erlöser" (1985/Rowohlt 1988) und "Letzte Instanz" (1993/Rowohlt 1996), letzteres Werk erhielt ebenfalls den NATIONAL BOOK AWARD. Kurz vor seinem Tod vollendete Gaddis das Hörspiel "Torschlusspanik" sowie einen letzten Roman, "Agape, Agape".
