Falling Man: A Novel - Livres de poche

2008, ISBN: 1416546065

[SR: 47936], Paperback, [EAN: 9781416546061], Scribner, Scribner, Book, [PU: Scribner], 2008-06-03, Scribner, Falling Man is a magnificent, essential novel about the event that defines turn-of-the-century America. It begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and tracks the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few people.There is September 11 and then there are the days after, and finally the years. Falling Man is a magnificent, essential novel about the event that defines turn-of-the-century America. It begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and tracks the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few people. First there is Keith, walking out of the rubble into a life that he’d always imagined belonged to everyone but him. Then Lianne, his estranged wife, memory-haunted, trying to reconcile two versions of the same shadowy man. And their small son Justin, standing at the window, scanning the sky for more planes. These are lives choreographed by loss, grief, and the enormous force of history. Brave and brilliant, Falling Man traces the way the events of September 11 have reconfigured our emotional landscape, our memory and our perception of the world. It is cathartic, beautiful, heartbreak, The defining moment of turn-of-the-21st-century America is perfectly portrayed in National Book Award winner Don DeLillo's Falling Man. The book takes its title from the electrifying photograph of the man who jumped or fell from the North Tower on 9/11. It also refers to a performance artist who recreates the picture. The artist straps himself into a harness and in high visibility areas jumps from an elevated structure, such as a railway overpass or a balcony, startling passersby as he hangs in the horrifying pose of the falling man. Keith Neudecker, a lawyer and survivor of the attack, arrives on his estranged wife Lianne's doorstep, covered with soot and blood, carrying someone else's briefcase. In the days and weeks that follow, moments of connection alternate with complete withdrawl from his wife and young son, Justin. He begins a desultory affair with the owner of the briefcase based only on their shared experience of surviving: "the timeless drift of the long spiral down." Justin uses his binoculars to scan the skies with his friends, looking for "Bill Lawton" (a misunderstood version of bin Laden) and more killing planes. Lianne suddenly sees Islam everywhere: in a postcard from a friend, in a neighbor's music--and is frightened and angered by its ubiquity. She is riveted by the Falling Man. Her mother Nina's response is to break up with her long-time German lover over his ancient politics. In short, the old ways and days are gone forever; a new reality has taken over everyone's consciousness. This new way is being tried on, and it doesn't fit. Keith and Lianne weave into reconciliation. Keith becomes a professional poker player and, when questioned by Lianne about the future of this enterprise, he thinks: "There was one final thing, too self-evident to need saying. She wanted to be safe in the world and he did not." DeLillo also tells the story of Hammad, one of the young men in flight training on the Gulf Coast, who says: "We are willing to die, they are not. This is our srength, to love death, to feel the claim of armed martyrdom." He also asks: "But does a man have to kill himself in order to accomplish something in the world?" His answer is that he is one of the hijackers on the plane that strikes the North Tower. At the end of the book, De Lillo takes the reader into the Tower as the plane strikes the building. Through all the terror, fire and smoke, De Lillo's voice is steady as a metronome, recounting exactly what happens to Keith as he sees friends and co-workers maimed and dead, navigates the stairs and, ultimately, is saved. Though several post-9/11 novels have been written, not one of them is as compellingly true, faultlessly conceived, and beautifully written as Don De Lillo's Falling Man. --Valerie Ryan, 9822, United States, 9823, African American, 9857, Asian American, 9882, Classics, 524198, Anthologies, 2160, Drama, 9926, Hispanic, 16004731, Humor, 9955, Native American, 9966, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10129, Contemporary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10132, Literary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 5571256011, Elections & Political Process, 11088, Ideologies & Doctrines, 11093, International & World Politics, 16022621, Political Science, 5571275011, Public Affairs & Policy, 5571258011, Specific Topics, 16023071, United States, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

No warning Ein kühnes Meisterwerk - Don DeLillos großer Roman über den 11. September. New York in Asche und Rauch am 11. September. In eindringlichen Bildern zeichnet Don DeLillo den Ablauf der Ereignisse nach: von den Tätern zu den Opfern, von Hamburg nach New York. In unvergesslichen Szenen entsteht das Leben einer Familie, die berührende Geschichte einer Liebe, das Leben nach der Katastrophe. Keith Neudecker, der im World Trade Center gearbeitet hat, kann sich am 11. 9. aus einem der brennenden Türme retten. Er sieht, was geschieht, ohne es zu begreifen, und schlägt sich wie in Trance zu seiner Ex-Frau Lianne und seinem kleinen Sohn Justin durch. In ihrer Verzweiflung klammern sich Keith und Lianne aneinander, sie wollen aus der Einsamkeit der Angst in ein gemeinsames Leben zurückfinden. Gespräche, vor allem in Liannes Familie, kreisen um den Schock, um den Terrorismus als ständige Bedrohung. Justin und seine Freunde versuchen im Spiel ihre Angst vor den Terroristen zu überwinden. Keith durchlebt immer wieder das Trauma der Flucht aus den Türmen, und Lianne irrt ziellos durch die Stadt. Und dann sieht sie voller Entsetzen Falling Man, einen Performance-Künstler. Nur mit einem Seil gesichert, stürzt er sich als Chronist des Zeitalters des Terrors hoch oben von den Wolkenkratzern in die Tiefe. Der Terror bestimmt die Realität, aus der sich Keith, letztlich unfähig zu lieben, in die glitzernde Scheinwelt von Las Vegas zurückzieht - als professioneller Pokerspieler. Lianne und Justin bleiben zurück in New York. Mit seiner großen sprachlichen Kunst und seiner packenden Erzählweise gelingt es Don DeLillo in "Falling Man", das scheinbar Unsagbare überzeugend in Wort zu fassen.
