Wiederentdeckung eines US-amerikanischen Kultautors Hollywood: nirgends gedeihen Illusionen prächtiger, nirgends werden sie rascher entsorgt. Hauptsache, die Show geht weiter. Dieser Roman ist eine herrlich respektlose Nahaufnahme der Traumfabrik, eine filmreife Parodie auf Starkult und kollektiven Selbstbetrug. Keiner hat das wahre Hollywood mit seinen Widersprüchen, Abgründen und Hell-Dunkel-Kontrasten schärfer erfasst als Nathanael West. In seiner Satire widmet er sich den Schattenseiten einer durch und durch künstlichen Welt, in der die Verlierer in der Überzahl sind: die ewigen Statisten, Sternchen, Schmalspurdiven und Reservehelden. Je zweifelhafter deren Aussicht auf das große Los, desto verbissener hängen sie ihren Illusionen nach – und überbieten sich in einer Parade der Peinlichkeiten und Selbstentblößungen. Einmal mehr besticht Nathanael West hier mit der hohen Kunst der Zuspitzung. Schonungslos bis zum Zynismus legt er das Urkomische im Tragischen frei und entlarvt seine Figuren als hoffnungslose Träumer, ohne sie dabei zu diffamieren. Wunsch und Wirklichkeit mögen noch so weit auseinanderklaffen, menschliche Sehnsüchte sind einfach nicht totzukriegen. So ist dieses Buch eine Demaskierung des neuzeitlichen Wahns, um jeden Preis ein Star werden zu müssen, und ein tiefer Seufzer angesichts evidenter Aussichtslosigkeit. Neuübersetzung

We take for granted the idea that white, middle-class, straight masculinity connotes total control of emotions, emotional inexpressivity, and emotional isolation. That men repress their feelings as they seek their fortunes in the competitive worlds of business and politics seems to be a given. This collection of essays by prominent literary and cultural critics rethinks such commonly held views by addressing the history and politics of emotion in prevailing narratives about masculinity. How did the story of the emotionally stifled U.S. male come into being? What are its political stakes? Will the "release" of straight, white, middle-class masculine emotion remake existing forms of power or reinforce them? This collection forcefully challenges our most entrenched ideas about male emotion. Through readings of works by Thoreau, Lowell, and W. E. B. Du Bois, and of twentieth century authors such as Hemingway and Kerouac, this book questions the persistence of the emotionally alienated male in narratives of white middle-class masculinity and addresses the political and social implications of male emotional release.
