‘Turn yourself in,’ Archie said. He pressed the fingers of one hand into his right temple, trying to slow the pulse of blood that beat against his skin. Susan was taking notes, recording everything. He didn’t care. ‘I’ll do anything you want,’ he said. ‘You know what I want.’ She let that linger in the air between them. ‘Tell me,’ he said. ‘I want you,’ Gretchen said. ‘I’ve always wanted you.’ Investigative journalist Susan Ward is about to print the story of her career – proving long-rumoured allegations about a respected senator’s affair with a young girl. But the day before her story is published, the senator is killed in a car crash. Detective Archie Sheridan is trying to rebuild a life with his family. But he remains haunted by beautiful, ruthless serial killer Gretchen Lowell – the woman who tortured him then saved his life. Now she is safely behind bars, Archie is determined to stay away from her. And when a mysterious child leads him to two bodies in Forest Park, Archie must focus his attention on the case. But then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen escapes. The only thing this gorgeous psychopath cares about is Archie – and with her on the loose, everyone he loves has become a target . . .

Cooler Realismus und Fantastik verbinden sich in der Geschichte von Sumire und Miu. Die eine ist eine junge weltfremde und romantische Möchtegernautorin, die andere eine siebzehn Jahre ältere erfolgreiche Geschäfsfrau. Unempfänglich ist Miu für das Begehren der jungen Frau, von der sie „süßer Sputnik" genannt wird. Auf einer Reise durch Frankreich und Italien bis auf eine kleine griechische Insel verschwindet Sumire plötzlich – alle Spuren ihres Schicksals verlieren sich. Ein junger Lehrer, der die betörende Sumire liebt, findet Aufzeichnungen bizarrer Vorfälle und Geschichten in Geschichten, die auch ein Geheimnis von Miu in der Schweiz aufdecken. Mit Haruki Murakamis neuem Roman „Sputnik Sweetheart" geraten wir an die Ränder der Wirklichkeit, aber auch wenn die Menschen auf getrennten Umlaufbahnen einsam wie ein Sputnik ihre Bahnen ziehen, gibt es noch eine andere Seite des Lebens: „Wir brauchen nur zu träumen."

From the outbreak of the Second World War to the evacuation of Dunkirk, GOODBYE SWEETHEART follows the fortunes of the people who live in a working-class street in Portsmouth. Like any street, April Grove in Portsmouth has its good and bad neighbours, its gossip, scandal and romance. But the outbreak of war in 1939 changes everything - especially for the children. Uprooted from their familiar urban existence they are evacuated (some happily, some not) to the country. Then there are the teenagers, whose first loves are accelerated and intensified by the threat of separation; and men and women, too old to fight, who hold the life of the street together. Based on the author's own childhood memories of growing up near Portsmouth, this is a novel which shows us what England was really like then - a story told with such nostalgia and charm that you leave the world it describes longing for the chance to return.

Kann Haruki Murakamis "Sputnik Sweetheart" aufgrund Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie poetologisch gelesen werden?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: Sehr gut, Universität Zürich (Deutsches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Fiktionalität, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie ist eine, wenn nicht die, zentrale Aussage, dass Fiktionalität Grenzüberschreitung sei. Genau dies ist die zentrale Thematik in Haruki Murakamis Sputnik Sweetheart. Wiederholt wird von einem fiktionalen Rahmen und der Überschreitung von Grenzen der Fiktion gesprochen, die Protagonistin des Romans vollzieht diesen Grenzübertritt sogar selbst. Aufgrund dieser Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen Isers Theorie zur Fiktionalität und dem Roman Sputnik Sweetheart möchte ich untersuchen, ob eine poetologische Lesart für Sputnik Sweetheart anwendbar ist, wenn man Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie als Poetologie versteht. Dazu werde ich zuerst die relevanten Thesen bzw. die Hauptthese von Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie herausarbeiten, um dann im Vergleich mit Definitionen von Poetologie zu diskutieren, ob Isers Fiktionalitätstheorie auch als Poetologie verstanden werden kann. Danach werde ich mit den bis dahin gewonnenen Erkenntnissen Sputnik Sweetheart1 analysieren, indem ich den Versuch unternehme, den Roman fiktionalitäts-poetologisch zu lesen. Zu guter Letzt werde ich die Interpretationsmöglichkeiten diskutieren, die sich daraus ergeben.

In a “powerful tale of a person’s capacity for reinvention” (Kirkus Reviews), a teenage girl from Philadelphia leaves her old life behind to become The Sweetheart, one of America’s most infamous female wrestlers. It’s 1953 and seventeen-year-old Leonie Putzkammer feels destined to spend the rest of her life waiting tables and living with her widowed father, Franz, in their Philadelphia row house. Until the day legendary wrestling promoter Salvatore Costantini walks into the local diner and offers her the chance to make a name for herself in the ring. Leonie sets off for Florida to train at Joe Pospisil’s School for Lady Grappling. There, she transforms into Gorgeous Gwen Davies, tag-team partner of legendary Screaming Mimi Hollander, and begins a romance with the soon-to-be Junior Heavyweight Champion Spider McGee. But when life as Gorgeous Gwen leaves her wanting more, she orchestrates a move that will catapult her from heel to hero: she becomes The Sweetheart, a choice that attracts the fans she desires but complicates all of her relationships—with Franz, Joe, Spider, Mimi (who becomes her fiercest competitor), and even with herself. Asking the big questions about what it means to grow up, and stay true to yourself, The Sweetheart is daring, innovative, and powerful storytelling. “With a debut both endearing and enjoyable, this is a hands-down winner” (Star-Telegram, Dallas).
