"Bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic (1881-1956) is arguably one the most controversial figures in contemporary Serbian national culture. Having been vilified by the former Yugoslav Communist authorities as a fascist and an antisemite, this Orthodox Christian thinker has over the past two decades come to be regarded in Serbian society as the most important religious person since medieval times and an embodiment of the authentic Serbian national spirit. Velimirovic was formally canonised by the Serbian Orthodox Church in 2003." "This book is based on a detailed examination of the changing representation of Bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic in the Serbian media and in commemorative discourse devoted to him. The book also makes extensive use of exclusive interviews with a number of Serbian public figures who have been actively involved in the bishop's rehabilitation over the past two decades."--BOOK JACKET.

Die Filmbesuche des Kinogehers lassen sich nicht als triviale Zerstreuung verstehen, sie offenbaren ihm die Einsamkeit und Hilflosigkeit seiner Suche. Doch jene Suchen, von denen die Filme erzählen, sind verfälscht: Der Held und Außenseiter endet glücklich als Konformist in der Menge. Die Mutter des Kinogehers, die ihr Kind der vornehmen Verwandtschaft überließ, als sie den einfachen zweiten Mann heiratete, eine Schafferin, die das hier und jetzt Notwendige ohne viel Worte tut, gibt dem Sohn einen Hinweis, als sie in ihrer unsentimentalen Art ihm von der Unrast und den Depressionen seines Vaters, des Arztes, berichtet. Schließlich findet der Kinogeher einen Weg, auf dem er zu suchen beginnen kann. Der Weg führt fort von leicht verdientem Geld und schönen Mädchen, fort auch von spektakulärer Leistung ... »Eine seltene wahre Geschichte« nennt der Üersetzer Peter Handke den Roman, den ersten des Autors, der 1961 mit dem National Book Award ausgezeichnet wurde und Walker Percy sofort bekannt machte.
