Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

What could be safer than Grand Forks, North Dakota, settled on the vast, flat plain of the Red River? There?d be no danger unless the whole town went under water. But in April 1997 that is precisely what happened. Flood Stage and Rising tells the story of that month-long disaster from the point of view of one who lived through it?fighting the flood shoulder-to-shoulder with her neighbors, watching in horror as the water breaks the dikes, fleeing the city only to see, via newscasts, her town burst into flames at the height of the flood?and finally working to put her own and Grand Fork?s life back together. ø As she chronicles North Dakota?s disastrous winter and spring?and the tortuous recovery process that continues to this day?Jane Varley gives us a shocking, moving picture of the reality behind the headline news that riveted the nation. A gifted poet and essayist, Varley has crafted a first-rate adventure narrative that is also a love story about a particular place and time, infused with her passion for the natural world, a curiosity about rivers and remote landscapes, and a need for meaning. Her story culminates a life of travels that prepared her?and prepares us?for what we see in North Dakota as the lake bed of the Red River Valley refills with water like a ghost of its ancient past.

Eine junge mexikanische Jüdin, ein alter Historiker und ein ehemaliger Ameisenzeichner und Wolkenspezialist treffen aufeinander – und die Konturen der Welt beginnen sich aufzulösen. Tatiana hat es eher zufällig aus Mexiko-Stadt nach Berlin verschlagen. Empfindsam für historisch belastete Orte wie für Wetterphänomene, durchstreift sie auf einsamen Spaziergängen die Stadt und beginnt schließlich, die Notizen des Stadthistorikers Weiss zu transkribieren. Über ihn trifft sie auf den Meteorologen Jonas Krantz, der schon als Kind in der DDR in der Flüchtigkeit der Wolken über Berlin Trost fand. Doch jeder der drei ist für eine Freundschaft zu spröde, und lebendiger als die Menschen, denen Tatiana begegnet, sind für sie die Geister Berlins: Von einer überfüllten U- Bahn, in der Hitler als alte Frau verkleidet erscheint, über eine unterirdische Kegelbahn der Gestapo, an deren Wände Spielstände aus längst vergangenen Partien angeschrieben sind, bis zu einem unerklärlichen Nebel, der alles verschluckt, führt uns Chloe Aridjis durch eine unruhige Stadt und verwischt die Linien zwischen Wirklichkeit und Vorstellung. Mit traumlogischem Surrealismus lässt Buch der Wolken uns spüren, dass Städte, genau wie Menschen, ihrer Vergangenheit nicht entkommen können.
