3 dollars by Elliot Perlman ( Book )
32 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At once humorous and dramatic, Three Dollars is about Eddie, an honest, compassionate man who finds himself, at the age of 38, with a wife, a child and three dollars. How did he get that way? And who is Amanda? He cared about people; he was, Amanda notwithstanding, a good husband, father and son. At any other time the world would have smiled on him. But this was the nineties and the world valued other things. Three Dollars chronicles the present breach of the social contract and its effect on a home near you. It is a brilliantly deft portrait of a man attempting to retain his humanity, his family and his sense of humour in grim and pitiless times: times of downsizing, outsourcing and privatising. It is about the legacy of Thatcherism and its effects on people and their relationships

Three dollars it's about change by Elliot Perlman ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eddie and Tanya fell in love over a turntable spinning Joy Division. They survived their twenties - the eighties - and now Eddie is 38 with a wife, a child, a mortgage and three dollars to his name. Three Dollars is the story of a good man in bad times and his resilience in the face of circumstances that could break him. As Eddie discovers, it's amazing how far little change will get you. From Elliot Perlman's best-selling novel and director Robert Connelly comes a heart wrenching, poignant and humorous modern fable

Ein mitreissendes Geschichtsepos über die Kraft der Erinnerung und die Macht des Erzählens Ein junger Afroamerikaner, der in der Gesellschaft wieder Fuss zu fassen versucht; ein Holocaust-Überlebender, der auf dem Sterbebett die Vergangenheit aufleben lässt; ein Geschichtsdozent, der um seine Karriere und die grosse Liebe kämpft. Drei Schicksale, wie sie unterschiedlicher kaum sein können, verknüpfen sich in diesem Roman meisterhaft zu einer epischen Erzählung über Erinnerung, Liebe, Schuld und unerwartetes Heldentum. Elliot Perlman führt uns vom Polen der Kriegs-Ära über die amerikanische Bürgerrechtsbewegung der 1960er Jahre bis in das New York der Gegenwart und demonstriert uns, wie wichtig es bleibt, sich zu erinnern und Zeugnis abzulegen - denn Geschichte hat die Eigenschaft, sich zu wiederholen. Elliot Perlman wurde 1964 in Melbourne geboren. Er praktizierte einige Jahre als Anwalt, bis er nach dem Erfolg von 'Drei Dollar', seinem ersten Roman, nach New York zog, wo er sich ausschliesslich dem Schreiben widmete. Perlmans literarisches Werk ist preisgekrönt. Sein zweiter Roman 'Sieben Seiten der Wahrheit', der ihm international den Durchbruch bescherte, ist 2008 bei DVA erschienen und wurde von der Presse als 'grosse Literatur' (Deutschlandradio Kultur) gefeiert; sein dritter Roman wird voraussichtlich 2013 auf deutsch vorliegen. Elliot Perlman lebt heute wieder in Melbourne
