Saint-Malo 1944: Marie-Laure, ein junges, blindes Mädchen, ist mit ihrem Vater, der am "Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle" arbeitet, aus dem besetzten Paris zu ihrem kauzigen Onkel in die Stadt am Meer geflohen. Einst hatte er ihr ein Modell der Pariser Nachbarschaft gebastelt, damit sie sich besser zurechtfinden kann. Nun ist in einem Modell Saint-Malos, der vielleicht kostbarste Schatz aus dem Museum versteckt, den auch die Nazis jagen. Werner Hausner, ein schmächtiger Waisenjunge aus dem Ruhrgebiet, wird wegen seiner technischen Begabung gefördert, auf eine Napola geschickt und dann in eine Wehrmachtseinheit gesteckt, die mit Peilgeräten Feindsender aufspürt, über die sich der Widerstand organisiert. Während Marie-Laures Vater von den Deutschen verschleppt und verhört wird, dringt Werners Einheit nach Saint-Malo vor, auf der Suche nach dem Sender, über den Etienne, Marie-Laures Onkel, die Résistance mit Daten versorgt & Kunstvoll und spannend, mit einer wunderschönen Sprache und einem detaillierten Wissen um die Kriegsereignisse, den Einsatz des Radios, Widerstandscodes, Jules Verne und vieles andere erzählt Anthony Doerr mit einer Reihe unvergesslicher Figuren eine Geschichte aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg, und vor allem die Geschichte von Marie-Laure und Werner, zwei Jugendlichen, deren Lebenswege sich für einen folgenreichen Augenblick kreuzen.

"From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work"--

In seinem preisgekrönten Debüt, den Erzählungen aus «Der Muschelsammler», nimmt Anthony Doerr seine Keser mit auf eine Reise von der Afrikanischen bis zu den Nadelwäldern Montanas und den Mooren von Lappland. Er entwirft dabei eine weite und reiche Natur- und Seelenlandschaft, die etwas Magisches besitzt: Ein blinder Muschelsammler an der Küste Kenias entdeckt die wunderbaren Heilkräfte einer hochgiftigen Meeresschnecke, Touristen fangen einen Karpfen, der so groß ist, daß man ihn nicht fotografieren kann. Die Frau eines Jägers kann die Traumbilder der Tiere nacherleben, wenn sie sie berührt. In einer fast beängstigend schönen, ebenso genauen wie eleganten Sprache erforscht Doerr die conditio humana in allen Variationen – die Veränderung, den Kummer, die Zerbrechlichkeit von Freundschaften, ein Herz, das langsam wieder geheilt wird – und beschreibt die Natur als wunderbaren Überfluß ebenso wie als zerstörerische Macht. Einige seiner Figuren haben mit den Härten des Lebens zu kämpfen, andere besitzen ungewöhnliche Fähigkeiten. Alle verbindet ihre Achtung vor dem überwältigenden Kosmos außerhalb ihrer selbst. Die amerikanischen Kritiken waren überschwenglich, «Doerr ist das allwissende, alles sehende Auge, wie wir es bei D.H.Lawrence, Tolstoi, Hemingway, Pynchon, DeLillo und Richard Powers vorfinden» (The Philadelphia Inquirer) und «Diese Geschichten erzählen vom Wunder und der eisigen Indifferenz der Natur, und sie sind meisterhaft geschrieben.» (Outside)

David Winkler wächst in Anchorage, Alaska, auf, ein stiller Junge mit einer Vorliebe für Schnee und die Schönheit der Eiskristalle. Manchmal kann er Ereignisse sehen, bevor sie eintreten werden – ein Mann mit einer Hutschachtel wird von einem Bus angefahren werden, er wird sich in eine Frau in einem Supermarkt verlieben. Als David davon träumt, daß seine neugeborene Tochter in einer Flut ums Leben kommt, während er versucht sie zu retten, flieht er panisch aus Cleveland, wo die Familie inzwischen lebt. Kann er so den Lauf der Dinge ändern? Mittellos, allein und ohne Gewißheit, ob seine Tochter überlebt hat – der Ohio ist tatsächlich in Cleveland über die Ufer getreten –, wohnt Winkler auf einer karibischen Insel bei einem Ehepaar mit einer Tochter, die sich um ihn kümmern. Schließlich ist es die Tochter, die ihn in die Welt zurückholt, um nach den Menschen zu suchen, die er verlassen hat. 25 Jahre nach seiner Flucht kehrt Winkler zurück nach Amerika. Anthony Doerr ist nicht nur ein Autor mit einer meisterhaften Beobachtungsgabe für Menschen und ihre Empfindungen und mit einem ungewöhnlichen Mitgefühl für die menschliche Verletzlichkeit. Seine Beschreibungen der Natur, der Landschaft, des Wassers, der Gerüche und Farben sind von einer großen Magie und überwältigenden Schönheit. Nach dem preisgekrönten Erzählungsband «Der Muschelsammler» beweist Anthony Doerr mit seinem ersten Roman, daß er ein herausragendes literarisches Talent besitzt.

Unser Leben, unsere Welt werden durch unsere Erinnerungen zusammengehalten. Was geschieht mit uns, wenn wir sie verlieren, und welche Möglichkeiten tun sich auf, wenn andere unsere Erinnerungen wiederbeleben können? Der 74-jährigen Alma Konachek, die in einem Vorort von Kapstadt lebt, widerfährt genau dies. Sie verliert ihr Gedächtnis. Unbekannte brechen mehrfach in ihr Haus ein, auf der Suche nach Hinweisen zu einem spektakulären Fossilienfund ihres plötzlich verstorbenen Mannes. Denn Alma hat eine Wand voller Fotos, Gedächtnisstützen, Speichermedien, in der sich irgendwo der fehlende Hinweis zu dem gesuchten Fossil befindet. In dieser lichten, wunderschönen Novelle gelangt schließlich ein Junge in den Besitz des Geheimnisses dieser alten Frau und ihres Mannes, einer Episode aus ihrer Vergangenheit mit der Macht, ein Leben zum Guten zu wenden. Der Junge reist dazu in die Karoo-Wüste und setzt sich dieser wilden Landschaft aus. Wie alle Werke Doerrs zeugt auch dieses von der Größe des Lebens – von der geheimnisvollen Schönheit der Fossilien, Wolken, Blätter – vom atemberaubenden Glück, in diesem Universum zu leben. Die Vorstellungskraft und Sprachmacht, das Einfühlungsvermögen und die Erzählkunst Anthony Doerrs sind unvergleichlich.

In the novel the interwoven stories of the blind Marie-Laure LeBlanc, and the German orphan Werner Pfennig and others as they are brought into the conflict of the Second World War. The Sea of Flames Diamond is wrapped within the plot but not the focus with several characters connected to it. The events that take place are during the World War two-era France and Germany. Pivotal action mainly takes place in St. Malo, a French town next to the English Channel, historically this town was known for piracy, in the Second World War it was bombed. When the bombing occurred this is where the temporal focus of the novel lies, tying the observed reality to the text in a chronological setting this being an important factor when writing historical fiction. Making connections to real places and events helps to immerse us deeper into the narrative.

Die sechs Stories dieses Bandes, angesiedelt auf drei verschiedenen Kontinenten, handeln von Erinnerung und Liebe. In jedem Augenblick, sagt Anthony Doerr, verschwinden überall auf der Welt unzählige Erinnerungen, dabei sind sie es, die unserem Leben Sinn und Zusammenhang verleihen. Gleichzeitig erforschen Kinder neues, unbekanntes Terrain, formen frische Erinnerungen, erfinden die Welt neu. In „Die Memel“ zieht ein verwaistes Mädchen zu ihrem Großvater nach Litauen und entdeckt eine Welt, in der Mythen real werden. In „Dorf 113“ geht es um den Bau des Drei-Schluchten-Damms und um die Samenhüterin, die auch die Geschichte des Dorfes bewahrt, das bald überflutet werden wird. In „Nachwelt“, einer erschütternden, unvergesslichen Geschichte, wird eine Frau, als einzige Überlebende aus einem jüdischen Waisenhaus in Hamburg dem Holocaust entronnen, von Visionen ihrer Kindheitsfreundinnen heimgesucht, findet aber Trost in der zärtlichen Fürsorge ihres Enkelsohns. „Die Tiefe“, angesiedelt im Detroit der dreißiger Jahre, erzählt die melancholische Liebesgeschichte von Tom und Ruby, die Tom wegen seiner Herzschwäche in Lebensgefahr bringt. Doerr erzählt von fast mystischen Momenten, in denen die Zeit aufgehoben scheint und die Toten anwesend sind. Die Welt wird transparent, wenn dieser große Erzähler sie und ihre Bewohner beschreibt.

In den Tiefen der dänischen Wälder zeichnet eine Wildkamera Bilder eines verängstigten Jugendlichen auf. Als sich herausstellt, dass der Junge vor mehr als zwei Wochen als vermisst gemeldet wurde, ist Kommissarin Louise Rick alarmiert. Warum wirkt er auf den Aufnahmen so panisch? Und warum kehrt er nicht nach Hause zurück? Dann wird im selben Wald die Leiche einer jungen Frau gefunden. Louise steht kurz davor, einer Reihe ungesühnter Verbrechen auf die Spur zu kommen, die schon lange zurückliegen. Denn der Waldboden ist mit Blut getränkt ...
