"Ever since the first furore was created on publication day in 1929, The Sound and the Fury has been considered one of the key novels of this century. Depicting the gradual disintegration of the Compson family through four fractured narratives, The Sound and the Fury explores intense, passionate family relationships wherein there is no love, only self-centredness. At its heart this is a novel about lovelessness - 'only an idiot has no grief; only a fool would forget it. What else is there in this world sharp enough to stick to your guts?'"

«Manhattan Transfer» gehört zu den großen revolutionären Romanen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Durch eine Fülle von Schauplätzen und Charakteren lässt Dos Passos ein schillerndes Porträt des urbanen New Yorker Dschungels entstehen, in dem das Jagdfieber wütet: nach Arbeit, Glück und Macht. Die Figuren des Romans – ein junger Einwanderer, ein Gewerkschaftsführer, ein Mörder, ein Karrierist, eine nach Selbständigkeit strebende Frau, ein sensibler Alkoholiker und andere – scheinen aus der unbestimmbar großen Masse der Stadtbewohner herausgerissen, um irgendwann wieder in ihrem Gewühl unterzugehen. Der eigentliche Protagonist des Romans ist jedoch die Großstadt New York von den frühen Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts bis nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg – eine immense, scheinbar anarchische Macht, der alle ausgeliefert sind. Der Roman ist panoramisch, filmisch, eine beeindruckende Collage modernen Lebens, voller Episoden und Brüche. Dos Passos’ Kamerablick setzt das Dokumentarische neben das Erleben seiner fiktiven Figuren; er verfolgt sie durch das Dickicht der Stadt, überlässt es jedoch dem Leser, seine Schlüsse aus ihrem Lebenskampf zu ziehen. Nach Erscheinen dieses Romans rückte Dos Passos mit einem Schlag in die Riege der wichtigsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts. In ihm vermischen sich der Naturalismus eines Theodore Dreiser und der Modernismus eines James Joyce zu einem vibrierenden, atemlos rhythmischen Stil, der bis heute nichts von seiner schillernden Farbigkeit und leuchtenden Intensität eingebüßt hat. Zahlreiche Autoren nahmen sich Dos Passos weltweit zum Vorbild, unter anderem übte er maßgeblichen Einfluss auf Alfred Döblins berühmten Roman «Berlin Alexanderplatz» aus. Die vorliegende Neuübersetzung stammt von dem renommierten Literaturübersetzer Dirk van Gunsteren (Thomas Pynchon, Philip Roth, T.C. Boyle) und ersetzt die aus dem Jahr 1966 stammende von Paul Baudisch. Sie ist mit einem Nachwort von Clemens Meyer (bekannt durch seinen ebenfalls Dos Passos verpflichteten großen Leipzig-Roman «Im Stein») versehen.

"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." --William Faulkner, on receiving the Nobel Prize "Go Down, Moses" is composed of seven interrelated stories, all of them set in Faulkner's mythic Yoknapatawpha County. From a variety of perspectives, Faulkner examines the complex, changing relationships between blacks and whites, between man and nature, weaving a cohesive novel rich in implication and insight.

“I’m a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can’t and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing that, only then does he take up novel writing.” —William Faulkner Winner of the National Book Award Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner’s stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition. These tales are set not only in Yoknapatawpha County, but in Beverly Hills and in France during World War I. They are populated by such characters as the Faulknerian archetypes Flem Snopes and Quentin Compson, as well as by ordinary men and women who emerge so sharply and indelibly in these pages that they dwarf the protagonists of most novels. From the Trade Paperback edition.
