Calypso

Author: David Sedaris

Publisher: Karl Blessing Verlag

ISBN: 3641234050

Category: Fiction

Page: 272

View: 8892

#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.
