Laurent ist fasziniert von dieser Frau, immer mehr verliebt er sich in ihre Gedanken. Also beschließt er, sich auf die Suche nach ihr zu machen. Aber wie soll er sie finden?

The novels of Paul Auster—finely wrought, self-reflexive, filled with doublings, coincidences, and mysteries—have captured the imagination of readers and the admiration of many critics of contemporary literature. In Beyond the Red Notebook, the first book devoted to the works of Auster, Dennis Barone has assembled an international group of scholars who present twelve essays that provide a rich and insightful examination of Auster's writings. The authors explore connections between Auster's poetry and fiction, the philosophical underpinnings of his writing, its relation to detective fiction, and its unique embodiment of the postmodern sublime. Their essays provide the fullest analysis available of Auster's themes of solitude, chance, and paternity found in works such as The Invention of Solitude, City of Glass, Ghosts, The Locked Room, In the Country of Last Things, Moon Palace, The Music of Chance, and Leviathan. This volume includes contributions from Pascal Bruckner, Marc Chenetier, Norman Finkelstein, Derek Rubin, Madeleine Sorapure, Stephen Bernstein, Tim Woods, Steven Weisenburger, Arthur Saltzman, Eric Wirth, and Motoyuki Shibata. The extensive bibliography, prepared by William Drenttel, will greatly benefit both scholars and general readers.

The Red Notebook brings together in one volume all of Paul Auster's short, true-life stories—a remarkable collection of tales that documents the curious, miraculous, and sometimes catastrophic turns of everyday reality. Paul Auster has earned international praise for the imaginative power of his many novels, including The New York Trilogy, Moon Palace, The Music of Chance, Mr. Vertigo, and Timbuktu. He has also published a number of highly original non-fiction works: The Invention of Solitude, Hand to Mouth, and The Art of Hunger. In The Red Notebook, Auster again explores events from the real world large and small, tragic and comic—that reveal the unpredictable, shifting nature of human experience. A burnt onion pie, a wrong number, a young boy struck by lightning, a man falling off a roof, a scrap of paper discovered in a Paris hotel room—all these form the context for a singular kind of ars poetica, a literary manifesto without theory, cast in the irreducible forms of pure story telling.

Maître Pierre-François Chaumont, ein brillanter Pariser Anwalt, ist leidenschaftlicher Kunstsammler und lässt sich keine Auktion entgehen. Von einem alten Ölgemälde kann er eines Tages den Blick nicht mehr abwenden: Der dargestellte Mann mit gepuderter Perücke ähnelt ihm wie sein Spiegelbild! Das Porträt soll seine Sammlung krönen und er ersteigert es, aber schon bald wandelt sich das Glücksgefühl in Paranoia, denn Pierre-François fürchtet, verrückt geworden zu sein: Niemand seiner Familie oder Freunde sieht die frappierende Ähnlichkeit. Mithilfe des Wappens findet er jedoch die Familie des Porträtierten - ein altes Adelsgeschlecht, das seit Jahrhunderten auf Schloss Mandragore in der Bourgogne lebt. Heimlich reist Pierre-François dorthin und erlebt eine weitere Überraschung: Jeder scheint ihn zu kennen! Man hält ihn für den seit Jahrzehnten verschollenen Grafen, und Pierre-François belässt es dabei - er kann der Versuchung nicht widerstehen, einfach eine neue Identität anzunehmen und ein neues Leben anzufangen ... Antoine Laurain erzählt in seinem Debüt von der Suche nach Identität, sich selbst und dem Glück, und von der Faszination für schöne und alte Dinge, die ihre eigenen Geschichten haben.

Eine Frau heiratet, ohne es zu wissen, ihren Bruder; ein unsteter Reisender taucht im rechten Moment auf, um ein Paar vor dem Verhungern zu bewahren; ein Mann findet durch einen unverhofften Anruf die verloren geglaubte Liebe seines Lebens wieder. In einem roten Notizbuch hat Paul Auster über viele Jahre Ereignisse aus seinem Leben festgehalten; Ereignisse, bei denen der Zufall eine entscheidende Rolle spielte: fünfzehn unglaubliche Erzählungen, allesamt wahr und doch so phantastisch. «Sie können den Auster aufschlagen, wo Sie wollen, und er ist immer interessant. Ein geistreicher Schriftsteller!» (Marcel Reich-Ranicki im «Literarischen Quartett»)

Extracts from the Red Notebooks

In 1979 when Matthew Engel started his journalist career he began to keep a commonplace book in which he has set down any quotes, jokes or facts that made him laugh, smile, sigh, cry or simply raise his eyebrows. Over the next 27 years he completed 35 small red notebooks with the intention that his son, Laurie, who was developing similar tastes, might one day read them. But in 2006 Laurie, aged thirteen, died of a rare and vicious cancer after a two year battle. Seeking solace wherever he could find it, Matthew started re-reading some of the notebooks and thought maybe other people might enjoy them. This selection is a highly engaging and eclectic mix of fascinating, thought provoking and frequently moving excerpts, many saved from oblivion by the author's intelligent eye. The cumulative effect of such stimulating material is to leave the reader with a genuine sense of awe at the stupidity, intelligence, imagination and humour of humanity. The proceeds from The Red Notebooks will go towards the Laurie Engel Fund that is raising money in conjunction with the Teenage Cancer Trust to support the appropriate care of teenage cancer patients.

The Language of Public and Private Communication in a Historical Perspective

Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Page: 390

This volume examines a fundamental concept of language within a historical perspective. The concept is that of public and private communication, the historical period ranges from the late middle ages to the late modern, and the language is English. In short, what are the linguistic traits, discursive practices, communicative settings and intentions which identify and contrast public from private communication, supposing it is possible to make such a fine distinction? The volume contains contributions from top international scholars working in the fields of, for example, historical correspondence, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century print news, sixteenth-century liturgy and political discourse, the language of quack doctors, late modern travel writing, personal notebooks, and even the eighteenth-century public discourse of shopping. As this ground-breaking volume is not just about key concepts in the history of the English language, but also examines at a more general level the concept of private and public communication, the various chapters will interest scholars working in language and communication generally as well as English historical discourse.

It’s 1967. Change is everywhere in the air. The Quebec independence movement has been endorsed by Charles de Gaulle's famous "Vive le Québec libre!" and things will never be the same. But unlike the Plateau novels, wherein Michel Tremblay's beloved characters are seen from the perspective of a child destined to discover the defining characteristic of his own otherness as gay, the Notebooks are narrated in the voice of a young woman, one whose difference is defined by her highly visible physical deformity--Céline Poulin is a midget. Having always maintained that he does not write politics, but fables, Tremblay here celebrates how it is possible for Céline to embrace her difference and to flourish in a community of others with transcendent eloquence and compassion.
