Meine Mutter: Dämonologie (German Edition) by Kathy Acker

By Kathy Acker

Ausgehend von der Beziehung zwischen Colette Peignot und Georges Bataille, erzählt Meine Mutter: Dämonologie von den Verstrickungen einer Frau in die widersprüchlichen Impulse von Zuneigung und Einsamkeit:
Zu Beginn ihres Lebens als Erwachsene gerät Laure in eine leidenschaftliche und alles verschlingende Affäre mit ihrem Gefährten B. Das lässt sie aber letztlich unbefriedigt, weil ihr die Notwendigkeit einer eigenen Identität - unabhängig von ihrem Geliebten - klar wird. Im Verlangen, zu entdecken, wer sie ist, begibt sie sich auf eine Reise der Selbstfindung: eine Odyssee in das Territorium ihrer Vergangenheit, in Erinnerungen und Phantasien ihrer Kindheit, in Zügellosigkeit und Hexerei.

Kathy Acker ist eine Legende, ihre Werke sind Klassiker der postmodernen Literatur.

Sie gilt immer noch als die einzig wahre Erbin William S. Burroughs. Ihre Arbeiten waren ebenso vielfältig und umfassten unterschiedlichste Textsorten. Die selbsternannte »Literaturterroristin« struggle der Inbegriff einer weiblich geprägten Punk-Literatur, die die Themengebiete Sexualität, Philosophie und Technologie produktiv aufnahm und in eigenständige literarische Arbeiten umwandelte. Ackers Werke, die von einer Haltung der Umschrift und der vorsätzlichen Piraterie geprägt sind, genießen zurecht Kultstatus und spiegeln Geschlechter- und Gesellschaftsverhältnisse ebenso kritisch wie unterhaltsam. Acker ist Kult.

Teilzeitrevue: Roman (German Edition) by Markus Binder

By Markus Binder

Dieses Buch widmet sich einem Paar und dessen Beobachtungen. Innerhalb von 36 Stunden fliegen die beiden eine Langstrecke, halten sich in einem Flughafen auf, fahren mit dem Zug in die nächste Stadt, ziehen in der Nacht durch die Klubs, erleben verschiedene Bands, streunen durch die Stadt, lieben sich und streiten. Schließlich landen sie in einem Kaufhaus.

Binder schreibt keinen klassischen Erzähltext. In Epiphanien und Dialogfetzen, in heftigen Zitaten und lustigen wie gesellschaftskritischen Reflektionen entsteht eine eigene Welt, in der egal ist, wer spricht, ob nun sie oder er oder eine Passantin oder eine Band. Zugleich bildet Markus Binder das Chaos ab, durch das wir moderne Menschen uns bewegen – mal verstört, mal begeistert.

ORF/FM4 begeisterte sich bei Markus Binders Buch »Testsiegerstraße« für die »sprunghaft wechselnden Momentaufnahmen, die vor allem von Binders spezifischer Sprachstilistik leben.« Auch in diesem neuen Werk ist wieder die Sprache selbst der eigentliche Protagonist.

Lavoro e altre piccole tragedie (Varia) (Italian Edition) by Federico Zazzara Marco Di Pasquale

By Federico Zazzara Marco Di Pasquale

Ode al lavoro: frustrante, appagante (frustante?, pagante?), soddisfacente, fantastico, agghiacciante. Dieci racconti alternati a dieci poesie, in cui i protagonisti si muovono attorno a ciò che, nel bene e nel male, rappresenta il fulcro di ogni esistenza, in un Occidente mai come ora costretto advert affrontare le profonde crepe del capitalismo. Nel dispiegarsi di una narrazione accorata, garbatamente ironica, spesso toccante, gli autori ci regalano ritratti indimenticabili dei figli del Duemila, "anni della facoltà di non sapere e di non poterci fare niente": un'umanità sottomessa o vincente, cinica o disperata, tendenzialmente inguaiata, sempre viva e presente, in cui sarà facile riconoscere un pezzo della propria vita.
