Cooler Realismus und Fantastik verbinden sich in der Geschichte von Sumire und Miu. Die eine ist eine junge weltfremde und romantische Möchtegernautorin, die andere eine siebzehn Jahre ältere erfolgreiche Geschäfsfrau. Unempfänglich ist Miu für das Begehren der jungen Frau, von der sie „süßer Sputnik" genannt wird. Auf einer Reise durch Frankreich und Italien bis auf eine kleine griechische Insel verschwindet Sumire plötzlich – alle Spuren ihres Schicksals verlieren sich. Ein junger Lehrer, der die betörende Sumire liebt, findet Aufzeichnungen bizarrer Vorfälle und Geschichten in Geschichten, die auch ein Geheimnis von Miu in der Schweiz aufdecken. Mit Haruki Murakamis neuem Roman „Sputnik Sweetheart" geraten wir an die Ränder der Wirklichkeit, aber auch wenn die Menschen auf getrennten Umlaufbahnen einsam wie ein Sputnik ihre Bahnen ziehen, gibt es noch eine andere Seite des Lebens: „Wir brauchen nur zu träumen."

Andrew Coburn’s The Babysitter was a bestseller; his previous book, Off Duty, was hailed by the New York Times Book Review as “a flawlessly plotted, stylishly written account The rewards are many and exceptional.” Now, in Sweetheart, a novel about the Boston Mafia, Andrew Coburn has surpassed himself. Revenge, the defining motif of this suspenseful tale of crime, is a joyous emotion in the Mafia. It figures in their use of tire irons to dismember the killers of the innocent, honored parents of Anthony Gardella, the local capo. And, over cocktails, a more sophisticated vengeance can be sought—by using a Beretta semi-automatic with silencer fired at point blank range. Police Lieutenant Wade, code name “Sweetheart”, has troubles of his own. Wade is recruited by Russell Thurston, and FBI agent of immaculate grooming and soaring ambition, to infiltrate the Gardella family. As shock follows surprise, Wade finds himself caught in a dilemma: The police lieutenant’s sympathies are subtly drawn toward the all-too-fascinating charm of the mobster chief, until Wade, the honest cop, must make an agonizing choice. The man who always did what was right has to decide whether to cross the slim line between justice and corruption. Andrew Coburn’s ear for dialogue and his eye for vivid characterization make Sweetheart superior and original entertainment as well as a grippingly authentic Mafia story.

From the outbreak of the Second World War to the evacuation of Dunkirk, GOODBYE SWEETHEART follows the fortunes of the people who live in a working-class street in Portsmouth. Like any street, April Grove in Portsmouth has its good and bad neighbours, its gossip, scandal and romance. But the outbreak of war in 1939 changes everything - especially for the children. Uprooted from their familiar urban existence they are evacuated (some happily, some not) to the country. Then there are the teenagers, whose first loves are accelerated and intensified by the threat of separation; and men and women, too old to fight, who hold the life of the street together. Based on the author's own childhood memories of growing up near Portsmouth, this is a novel which shows us what England was really like then - a story told with such nostalgia and charm that you leave the world it describes longing for the chance to return.

Kann Haruki Murakamis "Sputnik Sweetheart" aufgrund Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie poetologisch gelesen werden?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: Sehr gut, Universität Zürich (Deutsches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Fiktionalität, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie ist eine, wenn nicht die, zentrale Aussage, dass Fiktionalität Grenzüberschreitung sei. Genau dies ist die zentrale Thematik in Haruki Murakamis Sputnik Sweetheart. Wiederholt wird von einem fiktionalen Rahmen und der Überschreitung von Grenzen der Fiktion gesprochen, die Protagonistin des Romans vollzieht diesen Grenzübertritt sogar selbst. Aufgrund dieser Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen Isers Theorie zur Fiktionalität und dem Roman Sputnik Sweetheart möchte ich untersuchen, ob eine poetologische Lesart für Sputnik Sweetheart anwendbar ist, wenn man Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie als Poetologie versteht. Dazu werde ich zuerst die relevanten Thesen bzw. die Hauptthese von Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie herausarbeiten, um dann im Vergleich mit Definitionen von Poetologie zu diskutieren, ob Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie auch als Poetologie verstanden werden kann. Danach werde ich mit den bis dahin gewonnenen Erkenntnissen Sputnik Sweetheart1 analysieren, indem ich den Versuch unternehme, den Roman fiktionalitäts-poetologisch zu lesen. Zu guter Letzt werde ich die Interpretationsmöglichkeiten diskutieren, die sich daraus ergeben.
