1945 kehrt Gilbert Aldridge aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zurück zu seiner Familie. Während er die beschauliche Routine des Kleinstadtlebens genießt, durchstreift sein Sohn Lewis mit seiner schönen, rastlosen Mutter die Wälder - bis an einem Sommertag unten am Fluss ein schreckliches Unglück geschieht. Lewis bleibt allein und verstört zurück. Wenige Monate später wird ihm die junge Alice als neue Stiefmutter vorgestellt. Lewis lebt fortan als Fremder im eigenen Haus; er sucht Zuflucht im Alkohol und in heimlichen Exzessen in einem Londoner Nachtclub. Seine Trauer und Wut entladen sich schließlich in einer weiteren Katastrophe. 1957 kehrt der 19jährige Lewis nach zweijähriger Haft aus dem Gefängnis zurück. Ehemalige Freunde und Nachbarn begegnen ihm mit Misstrauen: Wer nicht ist wie die anderen, muss zum Außenseiter werden. Immer wieder versucht Lewis einen neuen Anfang zu finden; immer tiefer gerät er in einen Strudel aus Gewalt, Verzweiflung und enttäuschter Hoffnung. Sadie Jones' Roman über den "Außenseiter" Lewis ist von überwältigender Schönheit, eine leidenschaftliche und immens spannende Geschichte darüber, was mit denen geschieht, die die Regeln brechen, aber auch darüber, welches Schicksal jene ereilt, die die Regeln aufgestellt haben. Sadie Jones lebt mit ihrer Familie in London. Der Außenseiter ist ihr erster Roman. Brigitte Walitzek lebt in Berlin.

The robber bride by Margaret Atwood( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the extraordinary imagination of Margaret Atwood, author of the bestselling The Handmaid's Tale and Cat's Eye, comes her most intricate and subversive novel yet. Roz, Charis, and Tony - war babies all - share a wound, and her name is Zenia. Zenia is beautiful and smart and hungry, by turns manipulative and vulnerable, needy and ruthless, the turbulent center of her own never-ending saga. Zenia entered their lives when they were in college, in the sixties; and over the three decades since, she damaged each of them badly, ensnaring their sympathy, betraying their trust, and treating their men as loot. Then Zenia died, or at any rate the three women - with much relief - attended her funeral. But as The Robber Bride begins, she's suddenly alive again, sauntering into the restaurant where they are innocently eating lunch
The uninvited guests by Sadie Jones( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One late spring evening in 1912, in the kitchens at Sterne, preparations begin for an elegant supper party in honor of Emerald Torrington's twentieth birthday. But only a few miles away, a dreadful accident propels a crowd of mysterious and not altogether savory survivors to seek shelter at the ramshackle manor-and the household is thrown into confusion and mischief. The cook toils over mock turtle soup and a chocolate cake covered with green sugar roses, which the hungry band of visitors is not invited to taste. But nothing, it seems, will go according to plan. As the passengers wearily search for rest, the house undergoes a strange transformation. One of their number (who is most definitely not a gentleman) makes it his business to join the birthday revels. Evening turns to stormy night, and a most unpleasant parlor game threatens to blow respectability to smithereens: Smudge Torrington, the wayward youngest daughter of the house, decides that this is the perfect moment for her Great Undertaking"--Publisher description

The submission : [a novel] by Amy Waldman( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When a Muslim architect wins a blind contest to design a Ground Zero Memorial, a city of eleven million people takes notice. Waldman, a former bureau chief for the New York Times, explores a diversity of viewpoints around this fictional event, bringing in politicians, businessmen, journalists, activists, and normal people whose lives--whether by happenstance, choice, or even due to their country of origin--get caught up in the controversy. Incredibly, she manages to keep all the balls in the air without ever fumbling. The story is moving and keeps the pages turning, but there are also bigger themes at work: of individuals versus groups; about the purpose of art, commerce, government, and journalism in society; of how people respond to grief and terror. The result is honest, compelling, and breathtaking."--Chris Schluep, Amazon Best Book of the Month

Black Box by Jennifer Egan( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für ihren erfolgreichen Roman "Der grössere Teil der Welt" erhielt Jennifer Egan den Pulitzer-Preis und zahlreiche andere Auszeichnungen - nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil sie in ihrem Werk immer wieder mit Erzählweisen experimentiert und verblüffend präzise unser heutiges Lebensgefühl trifft oder sogar Blicke in die Zukunft wagt. Für ihre neue Geschichte "Black Box" gibt es noch keine Bezeichnung, denn auch hier betritt sie Neuland: Die Story wurde getwittert und erschien erst, nachdem die Kurznachrichten gesendet waren, gebündelt im New Yorker. In der festgelegten Zeichenzahl von 140 Zeichen pro Tweet entfaltet Jennifer Egans Text eine ungeheure Explosionskraft. Eine namenlose, auf sich gestellte Frau ist auf einen hochrangigen Verbrecher angesetzt: Ihre Aufzeichnungen entfesseln eine atemberaubende, von Agententhrillern inspirierte Verfolgungsjagd, offenbaren dabei aber auch schonungslos den Umgang mit weiblicher Schönheit und technisch aufgerüsteten Körpern - eben als Black Box. Jennifer Egan, geboren 1962, lebt mit ihrer Familie in Brooklyn, NY. Ihr erster Roman, "Die Farbe der Erinnerung", wurde verfilmt. Es folgten "Emerald City" und "Look at Me", beide für den National Book Award nominiert sowie der US-Bestseller "Im Bann". Für "Der grössere Teil der Welt" erhielt sie den Pulitzer-Preis 2011 und zahlreiche weitere Auszeichnungen. www.jenniferegan.com Brigitte Walitzek, geboren 1952, lebt in Berlin. Seit 1986 ist sie Übersetzerin, u. a. von Margaret Atwood, Peter Behrens, Jane Bowles, Margaret Forster, Germaine Greer, Carson McCullers, Beverley Nichols, Amy Waldman, Jeanette Winterson und Virginia Woolf
