Die spannende und erschütternde Geschichte des geistig zurückgebliebenen Charlie Gordon, der durch eine Operation eine überragende Intelligenz erlangt, gehört zu den erfolgreichsten Klassikern der Science-fiction. Der mehrfach preisgekrönte Roman ist in 27 Sprachen übersetzt, millionenfach verkauft und gelesen und unter dem Titel »Charly« verfilmt. Charlie Gordon, ursprünglich kaum des Lesens mächtig, ist zu Forschungszwecken operiert worden und entwickelt eine überragende Intelligenz; schließlich überflügelt er intellektuell und fachlich sogar die Professoren, die das Experiment leiten. Zu seinen Freunden zählt die Maus Algernon - das erste Lebewesen, das mit derselben Methode erfolgreich behandelt wurde. Mit den überwältigenden Fähigkeiten stellen sich für das Genie Charlie jedoch auch die ersten Probleme ein - in der Bäckerei, in der er früher arbeitete, mit seiner Familie, von der er jetzt entdeckt, daß sie ihn nie akzeptiert hat, und im Umgang mit dem weiblichen Geschlecht, vor dem er unerklärliche Angst hat. Als Charlie auf einem Fachkongreß als Attraktion vorgeführt werden soll, flieht er zusammen mit Algernon. Kurze Zeit später zeigen sich im Verhalten der Maus erste Verfallserscheinungen ... Charlies Aufzeichnungen für das Forscherteam geben dem Leser einen atemberaubenden Einblick in seine geistige Entwicklung und das Drama seiner Existenz. Die seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr lieferbaren früheren deutschsprachigen Ausgaben erschienen unter dem Titel »Charly«.

In dem freudlosen, abgeschiedenen Ort Starkfield in Neuengland, der die meiste Zeit des Jahres im Schnee versinkt, sind auch die Gefühle der Menschen zu Eis erstarrt. Die Pulitzerpreisträgerin Edith Wharton erzählt von einer untergegangenen Welt, die in den Figuren ihres berührenden Romans erschreckend lebendig wird. Den Farmer Ethan Frome verbindet eine Dreiecksbeziehung mit seiner Frau und deren jüngerer Cousine Mattie. Ihr Leben ist geprägt von Liebe und Einsamkeit, von sexueller Frustration und moralischer Verzweiflung. Eine archetypische Geschichte von leidenschaftlichem Aufbegehren und tragischer Passivität, von Sprachlosigkeit und der Unfähigkeit, dem Schicksal zu entrinnen. Ein kompositorisches Meisterwerk, pure Erzählmagie!

The Fifth Sally

Author: Daniel Keyes

Publisher: Hachette UK

ISBN: 1473215404

Category: Fiction

Page: 384

View: 7741

Sally Porter is a drab waitress, divorcee, and loner in the great city. But, though she is unaware of it, she is also four other, quite different people: Nola, the cold independent artist who has a studio in Greenwich Village; Derry, the happy-go-lucky tomboy; Bella, the sexpot with a talent for singing and dancing; and finally Jinx, the hate- filled killer. Whenever events put too much of a strain on Sally Porter, she feels a headache and a blackout coming on - and a new character takes over. If there is a man to be fascinated, she will become Bella. If there is an intellectual problem, she will become Nola. And - as happens in the opening scene of the novel - if there is a rapist to be dealt with, she becomes the vicious Jinx. It is the task of the wise and patient psychiatrist, Dr. Roger Ash - a man who nevertheless has severe problems of his own - to deal with this case of multiple personality and, through painstaking therapy, to try to fuse the four disparate personalities into "the fifth Sally."
