Book Description Büchergilde Gutenberg (Lizenz der Büchergilde Gutenberg Zürich), Frankfurt am Main, 1957. Leinen. Book Condition: gut. Erste Aufl. dieser Ausg.. Fadengehefteter, illustrierter Ganzleineneinband mit illustriertem Schutzumschlag. Der Umschlag am Rücken nachgedunkelt, berieben und mit mehreren hinterlegten Randeinrissen, die Schnitte nachgedunkelt und leicht fleckig, das Buch ansonsten in gutem, der Umschlag in lediglich befriedigendem Erhaltungszustand. "Betty Smith hatte mit ihrem ersten Buch ››Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn« einen tiefen Griff getan ins übervolle Menschenleben der Millionen-Vorstadt von New York, in der sie geboren und aufgewachsen ist. Aber sie erinnerte sich aus ihrer Jugend daran, daß dort nicht nur Menschen entstehen und vergehen, ringen und singen, sondern daß zwischen Wolkenkratzern und Mietskasernen, Hochbahnen und Lastwagen ein letztes Stück Natur wächst, ein Baum, dessen Anblick immer wieder Trost und Freude spendet inmitten der Not des Daseins, des Kampfes um das tägliche Brot. In diesem zweiten Buch der Autorin hat sich der Schatten, in dem die Menschen leben, um eine Nuance verdichtet und Verdunkelt. Ihr Tag vergeht mit dem Warten auf das Glück, das auch ihnen einmal lächeln muß, auf das, was das A und O des amerikanischen Daseins ist: die Chance. Die Hoffnung, daß wenigstens ihren Kindern einmal der Aufstieg aus einer freudlosen Existenz möglich gemacht wird, erhält sie aufrecht; das ewige Leitmotiv ihres Lebens ist: Morgen wird's besser Der Heldin des Romans, der diesen Titel trägt, wird eine solche ›>Chance<< geboten. Kaum der Schule entwachsen, erhält Margy Shannon eine Stelle, die ihr gestattet, zum kärglichen Haushalt ihrer verbitterten Eltern beizutragen, und nach dem Umweg über eine erste Ehe mit dem »boy-friend<<, der sich aber in jeder Beziehung als Schwächling erweist, geht sogar ihr Traum, der Traum aller kleinen Mädchen ihrer Schicht, in Erfüllung. Dieses Buch spielt überall da, wo Menschen darauf warten, daß es morgen besser wird. Und der Baum dieser Hoffnung wächst nicht nur in Brooklyn." (Verlagstext) Betty Smith (* 15. Dezember 1896 in Brooklyn, New York; † 17. Januar 1972 in Shelton, Connecticut; geboren als Elizabeth Lillian Wehner) war eine amerikanische Schriftstellerin. Das erste und zugleich bekannteste Werk von Betty Smith ist Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn) (1943), das nicht nur die amerikanische Bestseller-Liste anführte, sondern auch mit dem Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichnet wurde. 1945 verfilmte Elia Kazan das Buch, der gleichnamige Film erhielt einen Oscar für James Dunn als Bester Nebendarsteller und einen Juvenile Award (Jugendoskar, der in der Filmgeschichte nur 12mal verliehen wurde) für Peggy Ann Garner.
