A Line Made By Walking

SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2017 `When I finished Sara Baume's new novel I immediately felt sad that I could not send it in the post to the late John Berger. He, too, would have loved it and found great joy in its honesty, its agility, its beauty, its invention. Baume is a writer of outstanding grace and style. She writes beyond the time we live in.' Colum McCann Struggling to cope with urban life - and with life in general - Frankie, a twenty-something artist, retreats to the rural bungalow on `turbine hill' that has been vacant since her grandmother's death three years earlier. It is in this space, surrounded by nature, that she hopes to regain her footing in art and life. She spends her days pretending to read, half-listening to the radio, failing to muster the energy needed to leave the safety of her haven. Her family come and go, until they don't and she is left alone to contemplate the path that led her here, and the smell of the carpet that started it all. Finding little comfort in human interaction, Frankie turns her camera lens on the natural world and its reassuring cycle of life and death. What emerges is a profound meditation on the interconnectedness of wilderness, art and individual experience, and a powerful exploration of human frailty.

Die kleinsten, stillsten Dinge

Author: Sara Baume Format: eBook Release Date: 26/08/2016

Ein einsamer Mann Mitte funfzig kommt ins Tierheim. Ray braucht einen Hund, wegen der Ratten in seinem Haus, und er sucht sich den traurigsten Koter von allen aus: Im Kampf mit einem Dachs hat Einauge den Kurzeren gezogen, daher sein Name. Er ist sehr schreckhaft, immer hungrig, und wenn andere Hunde in der Nahe sind, wird er aggressiv. Ray, der das von seinem Vater ererbte schabige Haus an der See bisher kaum verlassen hat, findet in dem armen Kerl einen Gefahrten und ein Spiegelbild. Fruhmorgens unternehmen die beiden lange Strandspaziergange - bis eines Tages eine Frau mit Hund ihren Weg kreuzt. Einauge fallt den Rivalen an, und das Unheil nimmt seinen Lauf. Bald darauf steht eine Polizistin vor der Tur. Ray wimmelt sie ab und flieht mit Einauge in seinem klapprigen Auto. So fahren die beiden, Menschen meidend, die irische Atlantikkuste hinab, wahrend es drauen immer kalter und das Geld immer weniger wird ... Eine traurige, eine herzzerreiende Geschichte, die Sara Baume in eine so klare wie schne Sprache gehllt hat. Ray und sein Hund bewegen sich durch ein wenig idyllisches Irland, Raffinerien, Parkpltze, Dreck - die Kunst der Autorin und ihre berragende Beobachtungsgabe machen aus dieser Flucht eine Reise voll dunkel strahlendem Glanz.
