Brit Bennett gilt als das Wunderkind der neuesten US-Literatur. Aus dem Stand sprang die 26-jährige Afroamerikanerin mit ihrem ersten Roman an die Spitze der Bestsellerliste. Sie wurde für den PEN-Award nominiert und erntete begeisterte Kritiken; zuletzt kündigte Warner Bros. die Verfilmung an. «Die Mütter», so nennen sich die alten Frauen in der kleinen kalifornischen Gemeinde Oceanside. Sie sind Zeugen des Skandals, mit dem dieser Roman beginnt. Ein Skandal ist es, wenigstens aus ihrer Perspektive: Dass Nadia Turner, deren Mutter sich das Leben genommen hat, mit Luke, dem Sohn des Pastors ... Dass Nadia Turner ein Baby bekommt ... Oder vielmehr beschließt, es nicht zu bekommen. Und das ist erst der Anfang der Geschichte, der Anfang einer Geschichte voller Zuneigung und Komplikationen. Nadia kehrt der Kleinstadtenge bald den Rücken, sie geht aufs College, bereist die Welt. Aubrey, ihre beste Freundin, bleibt und stellt sich auf ihre Weise gegen den Chor der alten Frauen, deren Stimmen über die Jahre merklich auseinandergehen. Es dauert nicht lange und sie feiern ein neues Paar in Oceanside: Aubrey und Luke Sheppard. Und das beschäftigt die heimgekehrte Nadia mehr, als sie vor der besten Freundin zugeben kann. Brit Bennett fragt nach dem, was uns hält und was uns bindet, mit allem Respekt und der nötigen Respektlosigkeit. Und sie erzählt von Herkunft, Hautfarbe, Geschlecht in einer Gelassenheit, die staunen macht: ein lebenskluger Roman über das Amerika von heute und das Amerika von morgen.

Fathers and Mothers in Literature

Many people as a child dream of having other parents: a gentler mother, a kinder or stronger father, a more illustrious family? According to our secret dreams, were not most of us born sons or daughters of a king, a president, a champion? Freud termed this the Family Romance. We all carry these secret scenarios in ourselves. Usually they are long forgotten but nevertheless remain alive in the stories we tell ourselves and relate to others. Therefore the Family Romance is one of the keys to the understanding of literature. The French literary critic Marthe Robert developed a fundamental theory of Freud. In 1972 she presented in her publication Origins of the Novel a new method to analyse the novel and to understand its history. Her study offers a proof of the relevance of Freud's views and it invites us to expand on its ideas and suggestions. It is in this perspective that the authors of this volume write about the historical and mythical figures Mary, Medea, Electra, Kaspar Hauser and Sir Gawain. Other articles are devoted to the Family Romance in the works of the following authors: Barthes, Beckett, Camus, Drieu la Rochelle, Faulkner, Flaubert, Goethe, Claire Goll, Jutta Heinrich, Gombrowicz, Greene, Kafka, LÉvy, Modiano, Petronius, Sartre, Vigny.
