About this Item: ZEIT Bibliothek der verschwundenen Bücher im Eder & Bach Verlag, München, 2015. Halbleinen. Condition: gut. Erste Aufl. Hellblauer Halbleineneinband mit geprägtem Rückentitel, silbergeprägtem Deckeltitel, farbigen Vorsätzen und Lesebändchen. Der Rücken mit kleinem Farbfleck, makulierter Namenszug auf Vorsatz, ansonsten guter Erhaltungszustand. "The right stuff - der Stoff aus dem die Helden sind - beschreibt ein Amerika auf der Höhe seiner Zeit und eine Gruppe waghalisger Männer, die mit ihrem Mut das Abenteuer Raumfahrt möglich machten. Eines von 12 bisher vergriffenen Meisterwerken aus der ZEIT Bibliothek der verschwundenen Bücher." (Verlagstext) Tom Wolfe (* 2. März 1930 als Thomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr. in Richmond, Virginia; 14. Mai 2018 in New York City) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller, Journalist, Kunst- und Architekturkritiker sowie Illustrator. Wolfe gilt zusammen mit Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, Hunter S. Thompson und Gay Talese als Gründer des New Journalism, eines Reportagestils, der literarische Elemente in nichtfiktionalen Texten einsetzt. Der subjektive Blickwinkel und der an der literarischen Moderne orientierte Schreibstil stehen im Gegensatz zum sachlich-objektiven Stil gängiger Reportagen. Sein Markenzeichen waren weiße Anzüge. In seinem Essay Radical Chic und Mau-Mau bei der Wohlfahrtsbehörde diskutierte Wolfe die bloß modische Unterstützung radikaler Bewegungen wie der Black Panther Party durch reiche, weiße Künstler und Socialites". Ein weiterer Bestseller wurde Die Helden der Nation, eine romanähnliche Reportage über Testpiloten der NASA. Der Buchtitel The Right Stuff nahm bald sprichwörtlichen Charakter an; in dem Werk wurde der Raumfahrtsmythos auf den Boden der Tatsachen zurückgeholt und die inneren Konflikte der Testpiloten, Astronauten und ihrer Partnerinnen dargelegt. Die 1983 vorgenommene Kinoverfilmung durch Philip Kaufman erhielt den treffenderen deutschen Titel Der Stoff, aus dem die Helden sind. (Wikipedia) In deutscher Sprache. 416 pages. 8° (148 x 220mm).

About this Item: Borgen, 1981. 309 pp. Hft. 1. oplag. - "The Right Stuff (1979) is about the pilots engaged in U.S. postwar research with experimental rocket-powered, high-speed aircraft as well as documenting the stories of the first Project Mercury astronauts selected for the NASA space program. The Right Stuff is based on extensive research by Wolfe, who interviewed test pilots, the astronauts and their wives, among others. The story contrasts the "Mercury Seven" and their families with test pilots such as Chuck Yeager, who was considered by many contemporaries as the best of them all, but who was never selected as an astronaut. Wolfe wrote that the book was inspired by the desire to find out why the astronauts accepted the danger of space flight. He recounts the enormous risks that test pilots were already taking, and the mental and physical characteristics the titular "right stuff" required for and reinforced by their jobs. Wolfe likens the astronauts to "single combat warriors" from an earlier era who received the honor and adoration of their people before going forth to fight on their behalf.".

About this Item: Picador, New York, 2008. First edition of the re-issue of Tom Wolfe's classic work. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by Wolfe with his characteristic signature on the title page and additionally signed by John Glenn on the half-title page, who was a member of the Mercury Seven. In fine condition. Tom Wolfe began The Right Stuff at a time when it was unfashionable to contemplate American heroism. Nixon had left the White House in disgrace, the nation was reeling from the catastrophe of Vietnam, and in 1979--the year the book appeared--Americans were being held hostage by Iranian militants. Yet it was exactly the anachronistic courage of his subjects that captivated Wolfe. In his foreword, he notes that as late as 1970, almost one in four career Navy pilots died in accidents. "The Right Stuff," he explains, "became a story of why men were willing--willing?--delighted!--to take on such odds in this, an era literary people had long since characterized as the age of the anti-hero." "One of the most romantic and thrilling books ever written about men who put themselves in peril." (The Boston Globe). Listed by Modern Library as one of the top 100 nonfiction works of the twentieth century. Seller Inventory # 1218
