F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.

The long-anticipated biography of Robert Redford. Among the most widely admired Hollywood stars of his generation, Redford has appeared onstage and on-screen, in front of and behind the camera, earning Academy, Golden Globe, and a multitude of other awards and nominations for acting, directing, and producing, and for his contributions to the arts. His Sundance Film Festival transformed the world of filmmaking; his films defined a generation. America has come to know him as the Sundance Kid, Bob Woodward, Johnny Hooker, Jay Gatsby, and Roy Hobbs. But only now, with this revelatory biography, do we see the surprising and complex man beneath the Hollywood façade. From Redford’s personal papers—journals, script notes, correspondence—and hundreds of hours of taped interviews, Michael Feeney Callan brings the legendary star into focus. Here is his scattered family background and restless childhood, his rocky start in acting, the death of his son, his star-making relationship with director Sydney Pollack, the creation of Sundance, his political activism, his artistic successes and failures, his friendships and romances. This is a candid, surprising portrait of a man whose iconic roles on-screen (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President’s Men, The Natural) and directorial brilliance (Ordinary People, Quiz Show) have both defined and obscured one of the most celebrated, and, until now, least understood, public figures of our time.

Generally considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel, The Great Gatsby is a consummate summary of the "roaring twenties", and a devastating expose of the "Jazz Age". Through the narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long Island shore in the 1920s, to encounter Nick's cousin Daisy, her brash but wealthy husband Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby and the mystery that surrounds him.

F. Scott Fitzgerald was the star and spokesman for the decade he called the "Jazz Age, " the 1920's -- the "greatest and gaudiest spree in history" which saw "a whole race going hedonistic, deciding on pleasure." It all crashed, and with it came a severe poisoning of "the American dream." In his masterpiece The Great Gatsby, he warns of the corruption of values and the decline of spiritual life. Fitzgerald's writing is looked on today by millions as prophetic. This book is a look at what he so masterfully exposed and its aim is to apply the ageless Scriptures to the emptiness of hedonism and show how we can be led to make the right choices, to travel on the right road and to know a sure and steadfast hope in the midst of a Western civilization that is selling its very soul for the transient.

Kathleen Parkinson places this brilliant and bitter satire on the moral failure of the Jazz Age firmly in the context of Scott Fitzgerald's life and times. She explores the intricate patterns of the novel, its chronology, locations, imagery and use of colour, and how these contribute to a seamless interplay of social comedy and symbolic landscape. She devotes a perceptive chapter to Fitzgerald's controversial portrayal of women and goes on to discuss how the central characters, Gatsby and Nick Carraway, embody and confront the dualism inherent in the American dream.

Chad Harbach hat den Traum von der »Great American Novel« wahr gemacht: ›Die Kunst des Feldspiels‹ ist ein literarisches Wunder, ein magisches Debüt, ein so kluger wie zu Herzen gehender Roman über den Abschied von der Jugend, über Leidenschaft und Liebe, Freundschaft und Familie. Der Gott des Spiels hat Henry Skrimshander ein Geschenk in die Wiege gelegt: Der schmächtige, unscheinbare Junge aus der Provinz ist das größte Baseball-Talent seit Jahrzehnten. Als er in die Mannschaft des Westish College aufgenommen wird, scheint sein Aufstieg in den Olymp vorprogrammiert. Monatelang macht er nicht einen Fehler. Doch dann geht ein Routinewurf auf fatale Weise daneben ... und die Schicksale von fünf Menschen werden untrennbar miteinander verknüpft. Henry hat einen neuen Gegner: den Selbstzweifel. Sein Mentor Mike Schwartz macht die bittere Erfahrung, dass er Henry zuliebe sich selbst vergessen hat. Henrys schwuler Mitbewohner Owen muss sich von einem herben Schlag erholen. Rektor Affenlight lernt spät im Leben die wahre Liebe kennen und schlittert in eine gefährliche Affäre. Und seine Tochter Pella flieht vor ihrem Mann nach Westish – um auf dem Campus mehr als nur Sex zu finden. Während das dramatische Endspiel unerbittlich näher rückt, sind sie alle gezwungen, sich mit ihren tiefsten Wünschen und Abgründen auseinanderzusetzen. Am Ende wird einer von ihnen gleich zweimal bestattet, und die Leben der anderen werden nie mehr dieselben sein. ›Die Kunst des Feldspiels‹ erzählt von den Dingen, die uns ausmachen – den Fehlern wie den Obsessionen. Wer wissen will, was es bedeutet, hier und heute ein Mensch zu sein, der muss dieses Buch lesen. »Debütromane von solcher Vollkommenheit und Sogkraft sind sehr, sehr selten.« Jonathan Franzen »Wunderbar zu lesen, das reinste Vergnügen.« John Irving
