Wie können wir all die Rollen, die wir zu spielen haben, glaubhaft unter einen Hut bekommen? Wie gleichzeitig Sohn, Vater und Ehemann sein? Oder Mutter, Ehefrau und Geliebte? Erwachsener und Kind? Oder gar Amerikaner und Jude? Wie können wir wir selbst sein, wenn unser Leben doch so eng mit allen anderen verbunden ist? Diese Fragen stehen im Zentrum von Jonathan Safran Foers erstem Roman seit elf Jahren. »Hier bin ich« erzählt von vier turbulenten Wochen im Leben einer Familie in tiefer Krise. Julia und Jacob haben sich auseinandergelebt, doch wie könnten sie sich trennen, ohne dass ihre drei Söhne darunter leiden oder gar sie selbst? Immer wieder diskutieren sie alle Szenarien durch, kümmern sich aufopferungsvoll um den inkontinenten Hund und die bevorstehende Bar Mitzwa des ältesten Sohns. Gerade als die israelische Verwandtschaft zur Familienfeier in Washington, D.C. eintrifft, ereignet sich ein katastrophales Erdbeben im Nahen Osten, das die Invasion Israels zur Folge hat. Die Fragen »Was ist Heimat? Was bedeutet Zuhause?« stellen sich noch einmal ganz neu, auch für Jacob. Jonathan Safran Foer schreibt sich mit seinem dritten Roman endgültig in den Olymp der amerikanischen Literatur.

Based on Ahmed Tobasi’s personal coming of age story, And Here I Am, is an epic voyage of identity and self-discovery. Combining fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, spanning both the first Palestinian intifada and the second, we follow the protagonist through his transformation from resistance fighter to artist, his journey as a refugee from the West Bank to Norway and then back again. In a series of tragicomic episodes vividly brought to life with music, dance and animation, we journey through this personal and political tale of occupation and resistance, fear and heroism, a life of self-pursuit and loyalty that transports us to the heart of the hardships, struggles and contradictions of a young man growing up under occupation and his pursuit for the true meaning of freedom.

In diesem Buch geht es um die heißen Quellen aller Familiendynamik: um Konflikte und ihre besondere Bedeutung für Familie und Erziehung. In Konflikten zeigt sich, wie Grenzen gesetzt und respektiert werden und dass Konfrontation tatsächlich auch Nähe bedeutet. Jesper Juul zeigt, dass «Nein» eine liebevolle Antwort sein kann und wie aus destruktiven Auseinandersetzungen fruchtbare Konflikte werden, damit Eltern und Kinder sich finden. «Konflikte zwischen Kindern und Eltern sind keine Anzeichen dafür, dass die Eltern ihrer Aufgabe nicht gewachsen sind, sondern dienen dazu, dass beide Seiten etwas lernen. Die Verantwortung für die Konflikte aber übernehmen in einer gesunden Familie die Eltern. Den Kindern die Schuld zu geben ist verantwortungslos und führt nur zu neuen, noch destruktiveren Konflikten.»

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

The Story of Tim Hetherington, War Photographer

“Not only does Huffman bring Tim back to life . . . but he also leads us through some of the most harrowing combat of our generation” (Sebastian Junger, New York Times–bestselling author of Tribe). Tim Hetherington (1970–2011) was one of the world’s most distinguished and dedicated photojournalists, whose career was tragically cut short when he died in a mortar blast while covering the Libyan Civil War. Someone far less interested in professional glory than revealing to the world the realities of people living in extremely difficult circumstances, Hetherington nonetheless won many awards for his war reporting, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his critically acclaimed documentary, Restrepo. In Here I Am, Alan Huffman tells Hetherington’s life story, and through it analyses, what it means to be a war reporter in the twenty-first century. Huffman recounts the camerman’s life from his first interest in photography and war reporting, through his critical role in reporting the Liberian Civil War, to his tragic death in Libya. Huffman also traces Hetherington’s photographic milestones, from his iconic and prize-winning pictures of Liberian children, to the celebrated portraits of sleeping US soldiers in Afghanistan. “A powerfully written biography . . . This is poignant imagery and metaphor for the entire body of this extraordinary artist and humanist’s life.” —The Huffington Post “Huffman excels at heightening the drama, depicting the rapid-fire action and constant danger of working among soldiers and guerrillas engaged in battle.” —The Boston Globe “Huffman vividly chronicles the short life of a man drawn to danger zones to capture the horrors of modern warfare.” —Los Angeles Times “Celebrate[s] Tim Hetherington’s life . . . Recount[s] his last days in Libya in excruciating detail.” —Time

Feministisch! Herrlich sarkastisch! Und gar nicht dämlich! Können Frauen Genies sein? Oder sind ihre Arme zu kurz und ihre Köpfe zu klein? Warum haben wir im Geschichtsunterricht nur über zwei drei Frauen etwas gelernt? Was haben eigentlich all die anderen früher gemacht? »Jacky Fleming schaut genau hin – und das muss sie auch, denn sie sind schwer zu finden: Frauen in der Geschichte.« The Guardian »Schon der Anblick der weiblichen Gestalt lehrt, dass das Weib weder zu großen geistigen, noch körperlichen Arbeiten bestimmt ist.« Arthur Schopenhauer
