Wonderful town : New York stories from the New Yorker by David Remnick( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New York City is not only The New Yorker magazine's place of origin and its sensibility's lifeblood, it is the heart of American literary culture. Wonderful Town, an anthology of superb short fiction by many of the magazine's most accomplished contributors, celebrates the seventy-five-year marriage between a preeminent publication and its preeminent context with this collection of forty-four of its best stories from (so to speak) home. East Side' Philip Roth's chronically tormented alter ego Nathan Zuckerman has just moved there, in "Smart Money." West Side' Isaac Bashevis Singer's narrator mingles with the customers in "The Cafeteria" (who debate politics and culture in four or five different languages) and becomes embroiled in an obsessional romance. And downtown, John Updike's Maples have begun their courtship of marital disaster, in "Snowing in Greenwich Village." John Cheever, John O'Hara, Lorrie Moore, Irwin Shaw, Woody Allen, Laurie Colwin, Saul Bellow, J. D. Salinger, Jean Stafford, Vladimir Nabokov--they and many other stellar literary guides to the city will be found in these pages. Wonderful Town touches on some of the city's famous places and stops at some of its more obscure corners, but the real guidebook in and between its lines is to the hearts and the minds of those who populate the metropolis built by its pages. Like all good fiction, these stories take particular places, particular people, and particular events and turn them into dramas of universal enlightenment and emotional impact. The five boroughs are the five continents. New York is every great and ordinary place. Each life in it, and each life in Wonderful Town, is the life of us all. From the Hardcover edition

Lee is a math professor at a second-tier university in the Midwest. When a mail bomb goes off in the office of the star computer scientist next door, Lee is slow to realize that students and colleagues have begun to suspect that he's the Brain Bomber, an elusive terrorist whose primary targets appear to be academic hotshots. In the midst of campus tumult over the bombing, a letter arrives from a figure in Lee's past, which forces him to revisit events and choices that shaped his failed marriage, his life as a father, and his work as a scholar of middling achievement. While Lee becomes further ensnared in the FBI's attempts to find the bomber, the churned-up regrets from his past bring him to an examination of extremes in his own life as he tries to exonerate himself, face his tormentor from his past, and atone for his failings

Der Mathematikprofessor Lee führt ein unspektakuläres Leben an einer kleinen amerikanischen Universität. Als junger Mann verliess er seine Heimat in Asien und kam in die USA. Nach 2 gescheiterten Ehen und einer nur mittelmässigen wissenschaftlichen Laufbahn ist er unzufrieden und verbittert. Als ein beliebter Kollege von einer Briefbombe verletzt wird, ist Lees Reaktion eine Mischung aus Schadenfreude und Angst. Dann meldet sich wie aus dem Nichts ein früherer Freund bei ihm, mit dessen Ehefrau Lee einmal eine Affäre hatte. Sollte die Bombe möglicherweise Lee selber gegolten haben? Sein immer seltsameres, fast paranoides Verhalten weckt nicht nur das Misstrauen seiner Kollegen, sondern lenkt auch die Aufmerksamkeit des FBI, das den Anschlag untersucht, auf ihn. Lee gerät in den Verdacht des Terrorismus. Ein vielschichtiger und fesselnder Gesellschaftsroman, der die heutige Situation in den USA mit den ganz persönlichen Problemen eines Einzelnen verbindet

The martyred : a novel by Richard E Kim( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Written in a mood of total austerity; and yet the passion of the book is perpetually beating up against its seemingly barren surface...I am deeply moved." -Philip Roth During the early weeks of the Korean War, Captain Lee, a young South Korean officer, is ordered to investigate the kidnapping and mass murder of North Korean ministers by Communist forces. For propaganda purposes, the priests are declared martyrs, but as he delves into the crime, Lee finds himself asking: What if they were not martyrs' What if they renounced their faith in the face of death, failing both God and country' Should the people be fed this lie' Part thriller, part mystery, part existential treatise, The Martyred is a stunning meditation on truth, religion, and faith in times of crisis
