  • von Christine Nelson

    Autografen, die handschriftlichen Spuren, die ein Mensch hinterlassen hat, sind als unmittelbare Zeitzeugen aussagekräftige biografische Quellen. Grafologen und Psychologen extrahieren allein aus einer Unterschrift mitunter ganze Persönlichkeitsprofile, und auch der Laie schaut gerne mit Neugier und detektivischem Ehrgeiz auf das Schriftbild, bisweilen auch die Klaue (muss ein Genie sein!) prominenter Persönlichkeiten. Der brasilianische Schriftsteller, Verleger und Sammler Pedro Corrêa do Lago hält zwar nicht viel von der Grafologie, sammelt aber Autografen seit seiner Jugend mit einer Besessenheit, die ihm selbst nicht ganz geheuer ist: "Eigentlich müsste ich in einer Zwangsjacke stecken!" Im Laufe eines knappen halben Jahrhunderts hat er eine Sammlung zusammengetragen, die alle Dimensionen sprengt - sie umfasst rund 100.000 Dokumente: Briefe, Notizen, Tagebuchseiten, signierte Fotografien, Partituren, Manuskripte, Widmungsexemplare und andere handschriftliche Zeugnisse, von einem mittelalterlichen Pergament, das vier Päpste unterzeichneten, bis zu einer Buchwidmung inklusive Daumenabdruck von Stephen Hawking aus dem Jahre 2006. Die für diesen Band ausgewählten 140 Dokumente aus fast 900 Jahren stammen von Menschen aus Politik, Literatur, Kunst, Philosophie, Film, Musik und Wissenschaft, die ihren Platz im Who's Who der Geschichte behauptet haben und nicht im Meer des Vergessens untergegangen sind: Briefe von Lucrezia Borgia, Vincent van Gogh, Franz Kafka und Emily Dickinson, kommentierte Skizzen von Michelangelo, Jean Cocteau, Henri Matisse und Jackson Pollock, signierte Fotografien von Oscar Wilde, Rasputin, Emiliano Zapata, Sun Yat-sen, Josephine Baker und Allen Ginsberg, Handschriften von Giacomo Puccini, Jorge Luis Borges und Marcel Proust und viele Zeitzeugnisse mehr, darunter auch ein signierter Handabdruck von Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Zauber der Schrift bietet spannende, manchmal anrührende und mitunter verblüffende Einblicke in das Tun und Treiben prominenter Persönlichkeiten der westlichen Kultur und öffnet über den persönlichen Schriftzug im Idealfall einen Zugang zu einer privaten, intimen Welt, die uns sonst verborgen bliebe.

    Der Satz "Das Schwein da vorne ist meine Tochter!" birgt das Potenzial für ein Familiendrama à la Hollywood in sich und würde wohl den meisten Töchtern die Zornesröte ins Gesicht treiben. Allerdings ist alles eine Frage des Kontextes und in diesem Fall eine offensichtliche Zustandsbeschreibung gepaart mit unverhohlenem mütterlichem Stolz, denn - das lässt sich nicht bestreiten - Barbara Blasums Tochter Vera Isabelle kann auf eine wahrhaft tierische Karriere zurückblicken!In 33 Geschichten hat das Mutter-Tochter-Duo witzige, unglaubliche und zum Teil absurde Situationen festgehalten, die es erlebt hat oder über die die beiden unverhofft gestolpert sind - ob im Spargelfeld der Verwandten, im Manöver oder auf dem roten Teppich in Los Angeles. Und so verraten die beiden beispielsweise nicht nur, warum der Erfolg eines Kinofilms wortwörtlich in ihren Händen lag, sondern auch, wie sie zum Titel Lady samt Ländereien in Schottland gekommen sind. Hier zeigt sich ganz klar: Die besten Geschichten schreibt noch immer das Leben!

    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERTwo long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.Renegades: Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to their country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one white-looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself. It includes: Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches, including his "e;Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives Historical photographs and documents that provide rich visual context for their conversation. In a recording studio stocked with dozens of guitars, and on at least one Corvette ride, Obama and Springsteen discuss marriage and fatherhood, race and masculinity, the lure of the open road and the call back to home. They also compare notes on their favourite protest songs, the most inspiring American heroes of all time, and more. Along the way, they reveal their passion for-and the occasional toll of-telling a bigger, truer story about America throughout their careers, and explore how their fractured country might begin to find its way back toward unity.

  • von Joan Didion
    12,00 €

    From one of America's iconic writers, a portrait of a marriage and a life - in good times and bad - that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child. A stunning book of electric honesty and passion.Several days before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion saw their only daughter, Quintana, fall ill. At first they thought it was flu, then pneumonia, then complete sceptic shock. She was put into an induced coma and placed on life support. Days later - the night before New Year's Eve -the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John suffered a massive and fatal coronary. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of 40 years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, arriving at LA airport, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery at UCLA Medical Centre to relieve a massive hematoma.This powerful book is Didion's 'attempt to make sense of the weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had about death, about illness ... about marriage and children and memory ... about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself'. The result is an exploration of an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage, and a life, in good times and bad.
