Hemingways berühmtester Roman in neuer Übersetzung Hemingways frühester Roman aus dem Jahre 1926 liegt hier in neuer Übersetzung vor. Er ist der «Verlorenen Generation» des Ersten Weltkriegs gewidmet. Die Figuren leben, körperlich und seelisch gezeichnet, aber mit fatalistischer Sorglosigkeit als Außenseiter des bürgerlichen Lebens unter der heißen Sonne Frankreichs und Spaniens, zwischen Stierkampf und durchzechten Nächten. Hemingway selbst beschrieb seinen Roman als «eine verdammt traurige Geschichte, in der aufgezeigt wird, wie Menschen zugrunde gehen». So etwa Lady Brett Ashley, die Männer in Serie unglücklich macht: ihren Vertrauten, den Ich-Erzähler Jack Barnes, einen typischen Hemingway-Helden, beherrscht und zurückhaltend; den aus einer wohlhabenden Familie stammenden Amateurboxer Robert Cohn, der, von Brett mal nah, mal fern gehalten, zwischen Unsicherheit und Aggression schwankt; und schließlich Pedro Romero, den Stierkämpfer, stolz, ausdauernd, mutig und voller Würde, aber Lady Ashley gegenüber machtlos. «Fiesta» ist ein großes Epochenporträt, ein Generationenroman mit kraftvollen Zeichnungen von Menschen, Land und Leuten. Das Buch begründete Hemingways Weltruhm. «Eine fesselnde, wunderschön absurde, herzzerreißende Erzählung.» (The New York Times)

From the author of The Italian Teacher, this acclaimed debut novel set in Rome follows the topsy-turvy lives of the denizens of an English language newspaper. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Janet Maslin, The New York Times • The Economist • NPR • Slate • The Christian Science Monitor • Financial Times • The Plain Dealer • Minneapolis Star Tribune • St. Louis Post-Dispatch • The Kansas City Star • The Globe and Mail • Publishers Weekly Look in the back of the book for a conversation between Tom Rachman and Malcolm Gladwell Fifty years and many changes have ensued since the paper was founded by an enigmatic millionaire, and now, amid the stained carpeting and dingy office furniture, the staff’s personal dramas seem far more important than the daily headlines. Kathleen, the imperious editor in chief, is smarting from a betrayal in her open marriage; Arthur, the lazy obituary writer, is transformed by a personal tragedy; Abby, the embattled financial officer, discovers that her job cuts and her love life are intertwined in a most unexpected way. Out in the field, a veteran Paris freelancer goes to desperate lengths for his next byline, while the new Cairo stringer is mercilessly manipulated by an outrageous war correspondent with an outsize ego. And in the shadows is the isolated young publisher who pays more attention to his prized basset hound, Schopenhauer, than to the fate of his family’s quirky newspaper. As the era of print news gives way to the Internet age and this imperfect crew stumbles toward an uncertain future, the paper’s rich history is revealed, including the surprising truth about its founder’s intentions. Spirited, moving, and highly original, The Imperfectionists will establish Tom Rachman as one of our most perceptive, assured literary talents.
