Zwei weise Männer, eine Botschaft Sie sind zwei der bedeutendsten Leitfiguren unserer Zeit: Seine Heiligkeit der Dalai Lama und Erzbischof Desmond Tutu. Obwohl ihr Leben von vielen Widrigkeiten und Gefahren geprägt war, strahlen sie eine Freude aus, die durch nichts zu erschüttern ist. Im Buch der Freude vereinen die „Brüder im Geiste“ ihre immense Lebenserfahrung und die Weisheit ihrer Weltreligionen zu einer gemeinsamen zentralen Erkenntnis: Nur tief empfundene Freude kann sowohl das Leben des Einzelnen als auch das globale Geschehen spürbar zum Positiven wandeln. Unabhängig von allen Herausforderungen und Krisen, mit denen wir täglich konfrontiert werden, können wir diese Energie in uns entfalten und weitergeben. So wird die Freude zur Triebkraft, die unserem Dasein mehr Liebe und Sinn verleiht – und zugleich Hoffnung und Frieden in unsere unsichere Welt bringt.

Was wir im Feuer verloren

Argentinien ist ein Land, das heute den viel beschworenen Untergang der Mittelschicht erlebt. Gewalt zieht in den Alltag ein. Traditionen verlieren ihre Gültigkeit und die Gegenwart wird zur Zumutung. Mariana Enríquez schreibt über den Zerfall der Familien, erzählt von Freunden, die sich im Alltag bekriegen, von Häusern, in denen es spukt und in denen Menschen verschwinden. Sie erzählt von Mädchen, die sich selbst verbrennen, von einem Mann, der sich in den dunklen Seiten des Internets verirrt hat und für die Welt verloren ist. Enríquez’ Stimme ist ruhig, gelassen — als sei dies alles ganz normal. Und so erzeugt die Autorin eine enorme Wirkung, entwirft das Zerrbild einer Gesellschaft kurz vor dem Kollaps, einer Demokratie am Abgrund. Mariana Enríquez steht in der Erzähltradition von Borges und Cortázar und doch sind ihre Erzählungen ganz gegenwärtig. Sie gehört zu den wichtigsten Stimmen der jungen lateinamerikanischen Literatur.

Die siebzehnjährige Dot ist ein wildes, zorniges, rücksichtsloses Mädchen. Bei Mitschülern und Lehrern ist sie verhasst und gefürchtet. Zu Hause buhlen Mary, die Tante, Karl, der Vater, Celestine, die Mutter, und Wallace Pfef, der Pate, vergeblich um ihre Liebe – schamlos und unerschrocken spielt Dot sie gegeneinander aus. Da meint Wallace, eine gute Idee zu haben: Alles setzt er in Bewegung, um seine heißgeliebte Nichte beim Sommerfest zur Rübenkönigin zu küren. Doch statt Dankbarkeit zu zeigen, streckt Dot den Patenonkel mit drei Softbällen nieder, entert einen Doppeldecker und fliegt davon – wie einst ihre Großmutter Adelaide Adare, die vierzig Jahre zuvor auf einem Jahrmarkt in einem Luftschiff entschwand und ihre Kinder Mary und Karl zu Waisen machte, lange bevor in Argus, Dakota, Rüben angebaut wurden und das Leben in der Stadt sich von Grund auf veränderte... Eine anrührende und phantastische Familiensaga dreier Generationen. “Ein glänzender Roman.” The New York Times. „Das seltene Ereignis eines perfekten – und einfach wundervollen – Romans von einer der großen Autorinnen unserer Tage." Anne Tyler.
