Download e-book for iPad: Amerikanische Erfindungen (German Edition) by Rivka Galchen,Grete Osterwald,Thomas Überhoff

By Rivka Galchen,Grete Osterwald,Thomas Überhoff

Die Erzählungen der kanadisch-amerikanischen Autorin Rivka Galchen, «Amerikanische Erfindungen», verbinden Psychologie, Philosophie und Naturwissenschaften und führen ihre Protagonisten wie Leser immer wieder auf neues Terrain. So geht es, wenn guy lernt, der eigenen Wahrnehmung nicht zu trauen.

In einer dieser blühend phantasievollen Storys laufen einer Frau ihre Möbel davon. In einer anderen nimmt die Erzählerin eine Bestellung für Knoblauch-Huhn entgegen, ohne dem hungrigen Anrufer zu sagen, dass sie gar keine Imbissbude ist. In einer dritten Erzählung geht es um Ehe, Beziehung und Einsamkeit. Eine Frau ignoriert beharrlich, dass ihr Mann einen web publication mit dem Namen Ich-hasse-meine-Frau-Dot-Blogspot-Dot-Com betreibt.

All diese Storys, die zunächst so tun, als entstammten sie unserem realistischen Alltag, öffnen jählings verborgene Pforten in Schicksale und Welten, die uns nicht so vertraut sind. Ob die davonlaufenden Möbel, die Mysterien des Tunguska-Ereignisses, ein durch Geräusche sprechendes Haus oder die Finessen des Zeitreisens – das Phantasierte und das Erlebte, das Banale und das Erhabene sind in Galchens Welt nur durch eine zart irisierende Wahrnehmung getrennt. Wundersames geschieht, und zugleich stehen die Storys in geheimem Austausch mit kanonischen Erzählungen der Weltliteratur, von Gogols «Nase» über Keats’ «Ode an eine griechische Urne» bis hin zu Borges’ «Aleph».
