»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ

„Eine Satire voller Verve, Witz und Wut.“ Daniel Kehlmann Applaus erfüllt den Saal, als Charlotte zum Podium hochsteigt. Gerade wurde verkündet, dass sie als Erste aus ihrem 900-Seelen-Dorf ein Stipendium für die Dupont University erhält. Endlich wird das hoch begabte Mädchen in den Olymp des Wissens aufgenommen. Doch statt des ersehnten Lebens in einer Welt des Geistes findet sie sich in einem Mahlstrom aus Saufgelagen und sexuellen Ausschweifungen. ICH BIN CHARLOTTE SIMMONS ist ein brillanter Campusroman voller polemischer Spannung, Witz und Verve – und eine aktuelle Bestandsaufnahme des janusköpfigen Amerika, in dem die konservativen Kräfte gegen die liberalen antreten. „Charlotte, du bist dazu bestimmt, Großes zu tun“, prophezeit ihr die Lehrerin. Und das hübsche Mädchen vollbringt Großes: Sie schließt die Highschool in ihrem winzigen Nest in den Blue Ridge Mountains als Beste ab und erhält ein Stipendium für Dupont in Pennsylvania. Charlotte ist überglücklich, endlich darf sie in das Paradies der Gelehrsamkeit ziehen. An dieser bedeutendsten Universität des Landes wird sie erstmals auf Gleichgesinnte treffen, die wie sie die Welt zu durchdringen suchen. Doch kaum hat sie voller Idealismus ihr Studium begonnen, wird ihr klar, was an diesem Olymp des Wissens wirklich zählt: schicke Klamotten, sich bis zur Besinnungslosigkeit besaufen und natürlich Sex. In ihrer Naivität hätte Charlotte das nie für möglich gehalten, denn sie – ganz die Tochter ihrer religiösen Mutter – ist selbstverständlich noch Jungfrau. Doch schon bald umwerben sie drei Männer: ein verkopfter „Nerd“, der die Welt revolutionieren möchte; ein „Anabolika-Trottel“, der einzige weiße Basketballspieler im Uni-Team; und ein auf seinen Vorteil bedachter Schönling. Charlotte erwählt den Falschen – und braucht lange, um wie ein Phönix aus der Asche ihres Selbstverlusts aufzusteigen. Tom Wolfe, Amerikas Mr. Zeitgeist, legt in diesem rasanten und überaus amüsanten Campusroman den gegenwärtig in den USA tobenden Kulturkampf zwischen dem Konservatismus im Süden und dem Liberalismus an der Ost- und Westküste bloß, präzise , schonungslos und voller Allgemeingültigkeit. ICH BIN CHARLOTTE SIMMONS ist nichts weniger als eine „Great American Novel“, verfasst in einer atemlos genialischen Sprache.
