Item Description: Diaphanes Verlag, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 2. Aufl.. Language: German . Brand New Book. Ein Besuch auf einer Schildkrà tenfarm, die einen GroÃteil des nordamerikanischen Bedarfs an Schildkrà tenfleisch deckt; das Porträt einer seit 1854 bestehenden New Yorker Kneipe; schwindelfreie Indianer im Stahlhochbau; findige Nichtstuer, hochbegabte Kinder, Muschelfischer und bärtige Damen; eine Schilderung der Institution Beefsteak , einem Begängnis, bei dem es ums Vertilgen ungeheurer Mengen Fleisch geht; der fundamentalistische StraÃenprediger, der das Telefon für seine Zwecke entdeckt hat, oder Captain Charleys Museum für intel ligente Menschen: Joseph Mitchells Geschichten, Porträts, Reportagen und Erzählungen sind längst Klassiker amerikanischer Literatur.Mitchell ist ein begnadeter Zuhà rer, der vor allem die von ihm Porträtierten selbst zu Wort kommen lässt. In seinen teilnehmenden Beobachtungen verbindet sich Sachlichkeit mit literarischer Anschaulichkeit der Beschreibung, subjektivem Humor und scharfer Beobachtungsgabe. Immer wieder zieht es ihn zu den Käuzen, Exoten und Exzentrikern seiner Stadt. Mit Hingabe widmet er sich aussterbenden Milieus, Phänomenen, die alsbald der Vergangenheit angehà ren werden, und immer wieder dem pulsierenden Leben der Hafenstadt New York.Joseph Mitchells legendäre Reportagen gehà ren zur Ge schichte New Yorks, sie lesen sich wie Bohrungen in einer heute verschütteteten Zeitschicht jener Stadt, die mehr als alle anderen die Moderne verkà rpert. Die hier versammelten Geschichten sind in den Jahren 1938 bis 1955 im Magazin New Yorker erschienen. Für das deutsche Publikum weitgehend Neuland, erà ffnen sie dem Leser ungeahnte, beglückende literarische Entdeckungen. Bookseller Inventory # KNV9783037341414
