Wir sind nicht wir

Wir sind nicht wir

Author: Matthew Thomas Format: eBook Release Date: 16/02/2015

Ob in dem kleinen Apartment in Queens, in dem Eileen in den 1940er- und 50er-Jahren aufwachst, gelacht oder geweint wird, kommt ganz darauf an, wer gerade zu Besuch ist oder wieviel getrunken wird. Nicht ihre Eltern mochten, dass sie es einmal besser hat - sie selbst will dieser Enge unbedingt entfliehen. Als sie Ed Leary begegnet, einem jungen Wissenschaftler voller Sanftmut, scheint das Ersehnte so nah: ein schnes Haus, eine kleine Karriere, eine glckliche Familie. Doch was, wenn Trume in Erfllung gehen, das Glck sich aber nicht hinzugesellt?Thomas erzhlt nicht von Tellerwschern und Millionren, sondern von ganz gewhnlichen Menschen. Denn sie - die Mittelschicht - sind es, die Amerika zu einem mythischen Ort der Freiheit und Selbstverwirklichung gemacht haben. Aber so, wie wir lngst wissen, dass dieser Mythos nur eine Chimre war, erfahren auch Eileen, Ed und ihr Sohn Connell, wie schnell Sichergeglaubtes ins Wanken gert. Dann stellen sich die drngenden Fragen: Was ist wirklich wichtig im Leben? Hat man ein Recht auf Glck? Und wer sind wir, wenn wir nicht mehr wir selbst sind?

We Are Not Ourselves

Author: Matthew Thomas Format: eBook Release Date: 19/08/2014

Destined to be a classic, this powerfully moving (Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding), multigenerational debut novel of an Irish-American family is nothing short of a masterwork. (Joshua Ferris, Then We Came to the End).Born in 1941, Eileen Tumulty is raised by her Irish immigrant parents in Woodside, Queens, in an apartment where the mood swings between heartbreak and hilarity, depending on whether guests are over and how much alcohol has been consumed. When Eileen meets Ed Leary, a scientist whose bearing is nothing like those of the men she grew up with, she thinks shes found the perfect partner to deliver her to the cosmopolitan world she longs to inhabit. They marry, and Eileen quickly discovers Ed doesnt aspire to the same, ever bigger, stakes in the American Dream. Eileen encourages her husband to want more: a better job, better friends, a better house, but as years pass it becomes clear that his growing reluctance is part of a deeper psychological shift. An inescapable darkness enters their lives, and Eileen and Ed and their son Connell try desperately to hold together a semblance of the reality they have known, and to preserve, against long odds, an idea they have cherished of the future. Through the Learys, novelist Matthew Thomas charts the story of the American Century, particularly the promise of domestic bliss and economic prosperity that captured hearts and minds after WWII. The result is a riveting and affecting work of art; one that reminds us that life is more than a tally of victories and defeats, that we live to love and be loved, and that we should tell each other so before the moment slips away. Epic in scope, heroic in character, masterful in prose, We Are Not Ourselves heralds the arrival of a major new talent in contemporary fiction.
