Zum ersten Mal als Taschenbuch: der letzte Roman Erich Maria Remarques – ein Vermächtnis! Er blieb Fragment und fasziniert dennoch nachhaltig: Der Roman »Das gelobte Land«, an dem Remarque bis zu seinem Tod im September 1970 arbeitete, bietet ein schillerndes Bild des New York der Vierzigerjahre, der Weltmetropole, Kunststadt und Emigrantenhochburg. Ludwig Sommer hat es geschafft: Er ist als deutscher Flüchtling dem Naziregime entkommen und mit jüdischem Pass auf Umwegen nach New York gelangt. Er findet Anschluss an die Emigrantenszene und Anstellung bei einem Kunsthändler. Binnen Kurzem steht ihm das gesellschaftliche Leben der Stadt offen, er bewegt sich zwischen rauschenden Festen, teuren Restaurants und exklusiven Appartements – und doch kann er die Unbeschwertheit nicht zurückgewinnen. Erinnerungen an die Flucht suchen ihn heim, an die Monate in einem Versteck unter einem belgischen Museum und die Gefangenschaft in einem deutschen Konzentrationslager, wo er Zeuge der Ermordung seines Vaters wurde. Während er aufgrund seines Kunstverstands und seines kaufmännischen Geschicks immer erfolgreicher wird, quält ihn die Frage, ob ein Leben im Angesicht des Holocaust moralisch überhaupt vertretbar ist. Die Nachricht von der Befreiung Paris’ weckt Hoffnung auf eine Rückkehr und die Aussicht auf Rache, doch als kurz darauf Jessie Stein, eine selbstlose Unterstützerin der Emigranten, schwer erkrankt, entschließt sich Sommer zu bleiben. Und dann eröffnet sich die Möglichkeit, seiner Geliebten Maria Fiola nach Hollywood zu folgen. Das Ende bleibt offen, mehrere Skizzen Remarques sind überliefert, aber das Nachwort von Tilmann Westphalen liefert Aufschluss über die Entstehungsgeschichte und das mögliche Ende.

A veteran of World War I, Erich Maria Remarque found himself in a unique position to render the experience of war, both its internal and external ravages, in an intimate and realistic way. Responding directly to the then-nameless trauma many veterans and soldiers experienced in their lives, Remarque's novel is often hailed as pacifist work, though it often defies classification as a result of its undeniable loyalty to simple storytelling. This compelling volume explores the life and work of Erich Maria Remarque and expands upon the theme of war present in his classic novel. Readers are presented with a diverse set of essays that provide a wide range of perspectives on questions such as whether war results in a loss of innocence, and whether the book offers critiques of modern warfare. This edition also touches upon current perspectives related to war and peace, allowing readers to connect the events of the text to the issues of today's world.
