Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.

Kanada, in den 1930er Jahren: Laura, fünfzehnjährige Tochter eines Fabrikanten, verfällt einem Gewerkschaftsagitator.

Zurück bleibt ein Manuskript mit dem Titel »Der blinde Mörder«, das Laura postum berühmt macht. Aber ist sie wirklich die Autorin? Iris versucht Jahre später, sich rückblickend Klarheit über die Geschehnisse zu verschaffen.

Die Legende von Addie Bundren beginnt und endet am selben Ort: in Yoknapatawpha County. Vier Tage nach ihrem Tod – die Bussarde kreisen schon – machen sich die Hinterbliebenen auf den Weg in die entfernt gelegene Kreisstadt Jefferson. Denn Addie hat ihrem Mann Anse das Versprechen abgenommen, sie im Grab der Ihrigen beizusetzen. Doch auf dem Weg gerät der Leichenzug in immer neue Schwierigkeiten: Im Hochwasser stürzt eine Brücke ein; bei der Durchquerung des Flusses gehen Fuhrwerk und Sarg beinahe verloren. Und zu allem Unglück bricht sich der älteste Sohn, Cash, das bereits verkrüppelte Bein, während Dewey Dell, die einzige Tochter, neben der Verantwortung für den Jüngsten an einem eigenen Geheimnis schon schwer genug zu tragen hat. In wechselnden Kapiteln kommen die engsten Angehörigen zu Wort, aber auch Freunde und Nachbarn, der Arzt und der Pastor. Und irgendwann erhebt sogar die Verstorbene selbst die Stimme – bis am Ende dieser tragikomischen letzten Reise Lügen, Hoffnungen und Zwistigkeiten, kurz: die wahren Familienzusammenhänge, offenliegen. Faulkner selbst bezeichnete diesen 1930 erstmals erschienenen Roman als seinen besten, und seine Leser stimmen bis heute mit ihm überein. «Als ich im Sterben lag» ist ein Klassiker der Weltliteratur – überreich an eindringlichen Charakteren und Stimmungen, angesiedelt in der vielleicht berühmtesten fiktiven Landschaft der modernen Literatur.

Freut euch und jubelt

Apostolisches Schreiben "Gaudete et exsultate" über den Ruf zur Heiligkeit in der Welt von heute

Author: Franziskus (Papst),

Publisher: Verlag Herder GmbH

Page: 128

View: 9448

Franziskus fordert gerne einmal "Gesichter von freudigen Menschen", der Papst hält Freude für ein zentrales Element im Leben. Das hat er in seinen Werken, Ansprachen und Predigten immer wieder klargemacht. In seinem Lehrschreiben "Freut euch und jubelt" formuliert er neue Gedanken dazu und verbindet sie auf originelle Weise mit dem Begriff der "Heiligkeit". Heiligkeit als etwas, zu dem jeder von uns berufen ist, zu einem erfüllten und gelingenden Leben. Franziskus spricht über unseren konkreten Alltag, über die Herausforderungen und Sorgen, aber eben auch eine Freude, die das Leben durchzieht und trägt. Die Gedanken des Papstes sind ein kostbarer Schlüssel zum Evangelium, das als Botschaft nicht nur froh, sondern auch Freude macht, und das Franziskus uns so neu aufschließt. Sein persönliches Lob der "Mittelschicht der Heiligkeit", eine päpstliche Ode an die Freude und ein inspirierendes Werk für alle - Christen und Nichtchristen.

Wenn es knallt und stinkt, dann ist Chemie im Spiel! "Chemie für Dummies" macht deutlich, dass Chemie nicht nur aus Formeln, sondern vor allem aus unzähligen interessanten Stoffen, Versuchen und Reaktionen besteht. In diesem etwas anderen Chemie-Buch lernen Sie die Grundlagen der Chemie kennen und erfahren, wo sich chemische Phänomene im Alltag bemerkbar machen. John T. Moore macht für Sie so schwer vorstellbare Begriffe wie Atom, Base oder Molekül begreiflich und zeigt, wie man mit dem Periodensystem umgeht. Mit Übungsaufgaben am Ende eines jeden Kapitels können Sie dann noch Ihr Wissen überprüfen.
