Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D. Vance Autor der »Hillbilly-Elegie«

An einem verschlafenen Sommertag des Jahres 1984 begegnet die junge Holly Sykes einer alten Frau, die ihr im Tausch für «Asyl» einen kleinen Gefallen tut. Jahrzehnte werden vergehen, bis Holly Sykes genau versteht, welche Bedeutung die alte Frau dadurch für ihre Existenz bekommen hat. Die Knochenuhren folgt den Wendungen von Holly Sykes’ Leben von einer tristen Kindheit am Unterlauf der Themse bis zum hohen Alter an Irlands Atlantikküste, in einer Zeit, da Europa das Öl ausgeht. Ein Leben, das gar nicht so ungewöhnlich ist und doch punktiert durch seltsame Vorahnungen, Besuche von Leuten, die sich aus dem Nichts materialisieren, Zeitlöcher und andere kurze Aussetzer der Gesetze der Wirklichkeit. Denn Holly – Tochter, Schwester, Mutter, Hüterin – ist zugleich die unwissende Protagonistin einer mörderischen Fehde, die sich in den Schatten und dunklen Winkeln unserer Welt abspielt – ja, sie wird sich vielleicht sogar als deren entscheidende Waffe erweisen. Metaphysischer Thriller, moralische Betrachtung und Chronik unseres selbstzerstörerischen Handelns – dieser kaleidoskopische Roman mit seiner Vielfalt von Themen, Schauplätzen und Zeiten birst vor Erfindungsreichtum und jener Intelligenz, die David Mitchell zu einem der herausragenden Autoren seiner Generation gemacht hat.
