The novel is alive and well, thank you very much For the last fifteen years, whenever a novel was published, John Freeman was there to greet it. As a critic for more than two hundred newspapers worldwide, the onetime president of the National Book Critics Circle, and the former editor of Granta, he has reviewed thousands of books and interviewed scores of writers. In How to Read a Novelist, which pulls together his very best profiles (many of them new or completely rewritten for this volume) of the very best novelists of our time, he shares with us what he's learned. From such international stars as Doris Lessing, Haruki Murakami, Salman Rushdie, and Mo Yan, to established American lions such as Don DeLillo, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison, Marilynne Robinson, Philip Roth, John Updike, and David Foster Wallace, to the new guard of Edwidge Danticat, Dave Eggers, Jonathan Franzen, and more, Freeman has talked to everyone. What emerges is an instructive and illuminating, definitive yet still idiosyncratic guide to a diverse and lively literary culture: a vision of the novel as a varied yet vital contemporary form, a portrait of the novelist as a unique and profound figure in our fragmenting global culture, and a book that will be essential reading for every aspiring writer and engaged reader—a perfect companion (or gift!) for anyone who's ever curled up with a novel and wanted to know a bit more about the person who made it possible.

Ein Leben außer Kontrolle. Paul O’Rourke ist Zahnarzt mit einer gutgehenden Praxis an der Park Avenue in Manhattan. Er liebt das Leben, auch wenn er vielleicht nicht besonders viel damit anzufangen weiß. Doch dann tritt plötzlich ein Fremder im Internet unter O’Rourkes Namen und Beruf auf und bedroht fundamental dessen Identität – nicht nur in den virtuellen Tiefen des Internets, sondern auch im ganz realen Leben. Paul O’Rourke ist ein Mann voller Widersprüche: Er verachtet die Welt der sozialen Medien, ist aber abhängig von seinem iPhone, er ist ein Zahnarzt, der heimlich raucht, ein glühender Fan des Baseballteams der Red Sox, der es nicht ertragen kann, wenn sie gewinnen, und er ist ein Atheist, der Gott nicht ganz aufgeben will. Kurz, der Zahnarzt mit gutgehender Praxis an der Park Avenue in Manhattan liebt zwar das Leben, weiß aber nichts Rechtes damit anzufangen. Als Paul eines Tages feststellt, dass jemand in seinem Namen eine Website, eine Facebook-Seite und einen Twitter-Account eingerichtet hat, verfolgt er mit ohnmächtigem Entsetzen die Entwicklung seines virtuellen Alter Ego. Bald geht es nicht mehr nur um die Verletzung seiner Privatsphäre, sondern um etwas viel Beunruhigenderes: Jemand hat seine Identität gestohlen, und dieser »Online-Paul« beginnt ein Eigenleben zu führen – manchen ist er sogar sympathischer als der echte. Fieberhaft versucht Paul herauszufinden, was der Grund für dieses böse Spiel sein und wer dahinterstecken könnte. Er vernachlässigt dabei nicht nur seine Zahnarztpraxis, sondern gerät immer tiefer in die Abgründe einer digitalen Welt, die zunehmend sein reales Leben und Ich zu dominieren droht. In seinem vielbeachteten Roman »Ins Freie« hat Joshua Ferris das Schicksal eines Mannes beschrieben, der die Kontrolle über sein Leben verliert, weil eine unbeherrschbare Zwangsstörung Besitz von ihm ergreift. In »Mein fremdes Leben« variiert Ferris dieses Thema auf eine noch verstörendere, noch brisantere Weise, indem er zeigt, wie wenig es in unserer modernen Welt bedarf, um unsere gesamte Existenz, unsere ureigenste Identität anzugreifen und in Frage zu stellen.

Step One: Find a story. (A good one.) Step Two: Find a reading buddy. (Someone nice.) Step Three: Find a reading spot. (Couches are cozy.) Now: Begin. Accomplished storytellers Kate Messner and Mark Siegel chronicle the process of becoming a reader: from pulling a book off the shelf and finding someone with whom to share a story, to reading aloud, predicting what will happen, and—finally—coming to The End. This picture book playfully and movingly illustrates the idea that the reader who discovers the love of reading finds, at the end, the beginning. Plus, this is the fixed format version, which will look almost identical to the print version. Additionally for devices that support audio, this ebook includes a read-along setting.
