Moshe liebt Nana und Nana liebt Moshe. Und sie versuchen ihr bestes und alles. Aber das reicht nicht. Dann kommt Anjali hinzu. Anjali ist Nanas Freundin. Sie ist sehr schön. Zuerst küssen sich Nana und Anjali nur. Und zuerst schaut Moshe nur zu. Irgendwann sind sie zu dritt. Eine ménage à trois in der Tradition von Milan Kundera und Woody Allen beginnt. Aber so einfach, wie sie sich das alles vorgestellt haben ist es gar nicht. Adam Thirlwell inszeniert meisterlich ein extravagantes Rollenspiel zwischen Leser, Erzähler und Protagonisten. Spielerisch, verwegen und mit beeindruckender stilistischer Eleganz verbindet er Elemente der großen Literatur des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts. »Ein faszinierender Roman, der Ihre sofortige Aufmerksamkeit verdient.« The Independent

Wie macht man Philosophie aus Aprikosencocktails? Für Sartre kein Problem: Er machte Philosophie aus einem Schwindelgefühl, aus Voyeurismus, Scham, Sadismus, Revolution, Musik und Sex. Sarah Bakewell erzählt mit wunderbarer Leichtigkeit, wie der Existenzialismus zum Lebensgefühl einer Generation wurde, die sich nach radikaler Freiheit und authentischer Existenz sehnte. Ihre meisterhafte Kollektivbiographie der Existenzialisten ist zugleich eine höchst verführerische Einladung, die existenzialistische Lebenskunst heute neu zu entdecken. „Sarah Bakewell bringt alle Voraussetzungen mit, um uns die Geschichte des Existenzialismus neu zu erzählen. ... Sie schreibt brillant, mit leichter Feder und einem sehr britischen Humor, und bietet faszinierende Einsichten.“ The Guardian „Sie hat den Dreh raus, wie man zentrale Ideen auf den Punkt bringt.“ Financial Times „Skurril, witzig, klar und leidenschaftlich.“ Daily Mail „Ein Page-Turner.“ The Paris Review

"Folge deiner Leidenschaft, dann erntest du das große Geld", das klingt nach einem tollen Rat. Aber für die meisten führt es nur zu beruflichen Fehlstarts und ständigem Job-Hopping. Denn Leidenschaft allein reicht nicht, um in einem Job glücklich zu werden. Cal Newport zeigt anhand zahlreicher Fallbeispiele und mit vielen praktischen Hinweisen den verblüffend einfachen Ausweg: Wer Zeit und Mühe darauf verwendet, in dem, was er tut, immer besser zu werden, der wird mit zunehmender Meisterschaft immer mehr Gefallen an seiner Tätigkeit finden. Das ist der beste Baustein für Zufriedenheit im Job und eine große Karriere.
