Shortlist des Man Booker Prize – die psychologisch faszinierende Geschichte einer Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung.Eine junge Frau begleitet ihre Mutter nach Spanien, wo diese in einer Spezialklinik behandelt werden soll, da die Beine ihr den Dienst versagen. Doch ist das Leiden der Mutter wirklich physischer Natur, oder versucht sie, ihre Tochter an sich zu binden? Dr. Gomez gilt als Koryphäe, deshalb reisen die beiden Engländerinnen nach Andalusien, wo sich Rose in Behandlung begibt. Sofia, deren griechischer Vater die Familie vor Jahren verließ, versucht zu ergründen, woran ihre Mutter erkrankt ist und wo sie selbst steht. Beim Schwimmen im Meer, das voller Medusen ist, in Gesprächen mit Dr. Gomez oder dessen Tochter wird ihr immer klarer, dass sie sich von ihrer Mutter befreien muss. Als sie die Deutsche Ingrid kennenlernt, die selbstbewusst und unkonventionell ihr Leben lebt, trifft Sofia Entscheidungen. Ein Roman über eine allzu enge Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung, über Abhängigkeit und Emanzipation und über die Suche nach Identität, ein Buch, das wie ein Quallenbiss brennt und noch lange nachwirkt. Deborah Levy, die Autorin von »Heim schwimmen«, wurde für diesen Roman mehrfach ausgezeichnet und für den Man Booker Prize nominiert. »Ein Roman, der in seiner Klarheit an Virginia Woolf erinnert« The Guardian

The audacious and elegiac second installment in her 'living autobiography' on writing and womanhood, from the twice-Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Hot Milk and Swimming Home Following the acclaimed Things I Don't Want to Know, Deborah Levy returns to the subject of her life in letters. The Cost of Living reveals a writer in radical flux, considering what it means to live with value and meaning and pleasure. This perfectly crafted snapshot of a woman in the process of transformation is as distinctive, wide-ranging and original as Levy's acclaimed novels, an essential read for every Deborah Levy fan.

European thought is often said to be a gift to the rest of the world, but what if there is no gift as such? What if there is only an economy where every giving is also a taking, and every taking is also a giving? This book extends the question of economies by making a case for an "economy of thought" and a "political economy." It argues that all thinking and doing presupposes taking, and therefore giving, as the price to pay for taking; or that there exists a "cost of living," which renders the idea of free thinking and living untenable. The argument is developed against the Enlightenment directive to think for oneself as the means of becoming autonomous and shows that this "light," given to the rest of the world as a gift, turns out to be nothing.

Mavis Gallant is admired and beloved as one of the masters of the modern short story. Selected from early collections and the New Yorker, where many of the author's stories have appeared over the last fifty years, and with an introduction by Jhumpa Lahiri, The Cost of Living reveals a writer coming into her own. The stories span the first twenty years of a long career, from the poise and poignancy of her very first published story, 'Madeleine's Birthday' (1951), to the masterly exploration of the passage of time in the long story 'The Burgundy Weekend' (1971) that appears here in book form for the first time. Gallant's sensibility has always been cosmopolitan and these stories take us from Quebec to postwar Europe, via New York and New England, before settling, like their author, in Paris. Everywhere the book reveals Gallant's subtly penetrating psychological insight, wit and unsentimental sympathy for the excluded and the exiled, not to mention her wonderfully wicked sense of humour.

From the bestselling author of The God of Small Things comes a scathing and passionate indictment of big government's disregard for the individual. In her Booker Prize-winning novel, The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy turned a compassionate but unrelenting eye on one family in India. Now she lavishes the same acrobatic language and fierce humanity on the future of her beloved country. In this spirited polemic, Roy dares to take on two of the great illusions of India's progress: the massive dam projects that were supposed to haul this sprawling subcontinent into the modern age--but which instead have displaced untold millions--and the detonation of India's first nuclear bomb, with all its attendant Faustian bargains. Merging her inimitable voice with a great moral outrage and imaginative sweep, Roy peels away the mask of democracy and prosperity to show the true costs hidden beneath. For those who have been mesmerized by her vision of India, here is a sketch, traced in fire, of its topsy-turvy society, where the lives of the many are sacrificed for the comforts of the few.

Wenn Menschen so viel unterwegs sind, dass sie bei der Frage nach ihrer Herkunft erstmal lange nachdenken oder am Flughafen vergessen, ob sie auf die Ankunfts- oder Abflugsanzeige schauen müssen, dann sind sie entweder überall zu Hause oder nirgendwo. Die Figuren dieser zehn Geschichten bewegen sich zwischen Wien und Rom, Barcelona und Prag, und selbst ein Date in London muss zumindest im polnischen Club stattfinden. Unterwegs sein heißt, vor Beziehungen auf der Flucht zu sein oder beim Kennenlernen schon an den Abschied zu denken und gar nicht erst hinter der coolen Fassade hervorzukriechen. Inmitten eines unaufgeregten und oft witzigen Geplänkels tut sich stets unmerklich ein Graben auf, über den der Leser jedoch leicht hinüberhüpfen kann, denn die entscheidenden Informationen stehen bei Deborah Levy immer wohldosiert zwischen den Zeilen. Es liegt an uns, sie zu entziffern. Das Schalkhafte, das Melancholische und ganz besonders das Elegante in Levys Sprache hat die Übersetzerin Barbara Schaden genau eingefangen.
