Ein zutiefst menschlicher Roman über eine liebenswerte Truppe von Lebens- und Überlebenskünstlern Was, wenn ein Zeitungserbe seinem Basset mehr Interesse entgegenbringt als dem Schicksal seines Blattes? Was wird aus der unglückseligen Ruby (alleinstehend, immer auf der Suche nach dem Mann fürs Leben)? Aus Ed, der gefeuert wird und sich an der zuständigen Sachbearbeiterin (alleinerziehend, drei Kinder und keine Zeit für die Liebe) rächt? Aus der Chefredakteurin Kathleen (verheiratet mit einem Weichei und verliebt in einen anderen)? Und aus Lloyd, der, einsam wie ein Straßenhund, aus Not eine Story erfindet und auffliegt? Rachmans wunderbar hintergründiger, ernst-komischer Gesellschaftsroman über eine internationale Tageszeitung und ihre Macher in Rom ist von bezwingender Leichtigkeit und ein Panoptikum unserer Zeit.»Dieser Roman von Tom Rachman ist so gut, dass ich ihn zweimal lesen musste – einfach, um zu begreifen, wie er das hingekriegt hat, wie einer, der gerade mal fünfunddreißig ist, ein derartiges Gespür für Menschen und ihre Schwächen haben kann.« Christopher Buckley, The New York Times Book Review

#1-Bestseller der New York Times Den betörend geheimnisvollen Namen Calypso teilen sich unter anderem eine griechische Meeresnymphe, ein afrikanisch-karibischer Tanzrhythmus und ein Saturnmond. Fragt man David Sedaris, ist Calypso ein besonders bescheuerter Name für eine Katze. Aber auch ein betörend geheimnisvoller Titel für die lang erwartete neue Geschichtensammlung eines der erfolgreichsten Humoristen unserer Zeit, der es wie kein anderer versteht, zarte Schönheit im Hässlichen zu entdecken und die banale Komik des schönen Scheins zu entlarven. Die autobiografischen Geschichten in Calypso kreisen um das solare Zentrum der Familie. In den Ferien und an Feiertagen kommt der Sedaris-Clan zusammen, im elterlichen Strandhaus, später in David Sedaris' eigener Zuflucht mit Meerblick, und flickt am generationsübergreifenden Quilt aus gescheiterten Beziehungen, tragischen Toden, späten Einsichten - und hartnäckiger Liebe zu den Freunden, die man sich nicht aussuchen kann.
