Flying Blue Tacos is a hilarious collection of insightful observations made by the main character, Hector Gonzalez, regarding his Mexican-American culture. Hector is a college student who is interested in entering an art contest at the university in order to try and win the thousand dollars first place prize. He is torn between entering a "typical" Mexican-American painting (skulls, farm workers, La Virgen de Guadalupe, pachucos, etc.), and a more universal, abstract painting. As he contemplates which of the two paintings to enter, he weighs in on many topics familiar to most Mexican-Americans, such as: Tired of Hearing "Sí Se Puede" all of the Time - Its been used in everything from immigration rallies to high school pep-rallies to my aunt yelling enthusiastically at her 2-year-old son ~ Sí se puede! ~ Sí se puede!... as he sat on the toilet trying to take a crap after being constipated for a couple of days. Trick-or-Treating in the Rich White Neighborhoods - Once in a while, someone would screw up and answer, "Sí, it's yo--Yenifer." But for the most part, they had no idea they were handing out candy to Hectors, Pablos, Marias, and Yenifers and not to Billys, Toms, Pattys and Jennifers. Defining the Term "Chicano" - ...if someone thinks he's a Chicano, then he's a Chicano. Besides, there's no Chicano Kennel Club sending out Certificates of Authenticity or pedigree papers showing someone is a purebred Chicano. Mexican's Favorite Type of Therapy - Denial Therapy is the preferred method of therapy for Mexicans. It's much better than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Psychoanalysis Therapy because it doesn't require seeing anyone with an advanced degree, there isn't a co-payment to make at the end of a session, the hours are flexible, and it's free. Denial Therapy may not fix the issue at hand, but it makes it bearable for at least one more day. Flying Blue Tacos will keep the readers laughing throughout the book. As the cover states: It's a Stand-Up Routine in Literary Form.

Der Kultroman als eBook! »Unendlicher Spaß vereint literarische Innovation und Lesbarkeit auf eigene, unerhörte, markerschütternde Weise.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung »Unendlicher Spa߫ – so nannte James Incandenza seinen Film, der Menschen, die ihn anschauen, so verhext, dass sie sich nicht mehr von ihm lösen können und dabei verdursten und verhungern. Sein Sohn Hal, ein Tenniswunderkind mit außergewöhnlichen intellektuellen Fähigkeiten, studiert an der Enfield Tennis Academy (ETA), die von seinem Vater gegründet wurde. Hier sowie im nahe gelegenen Ennet-House, einem Entziehungsheim für Drogenabhängige, spielt ein Teil der überbordenden Handlung, die jeden literarischen Kosmos sprengt – in einem leicht in die Zukunft versetzten Amerika, das mit Kanada und Mexiko die »Organisation der nordamerikanischen Nationen« bildet und von radikalen Separatisten in Kanada bekämpft wird. 1996 erschien »Infinite Jest« in den USA und machte David Foster Wallace über Nacht zum Superstar der Literaturszene. Nicht allein der schiere Umfang, sondern vor allem die sprachliche Kreativität, die ungeheure Themenvielfalt, die treffsichere Gesellschaftskritik, scharfe Analyse sowie der Humor machen den Roman zum Meilenstein der amerikanischen Literatur. Namhafte Autoren von Dave Eggers bis Jonathan Franzen sehen in diesem Buch ein Vorbild für ihr Schaffen. Ulrich Blumenbach hat sechs Jahre lang an der Übersetzung gearbeitet, und seine kongeniale Übertragung ins Deutsche wurde mit zahlreichen Preisen ausgezeichnet.

The idea for Bite Size World came from a game Roger Frankham used to play with food-minded friends involving spinning a globe blindfold and throwing a dinner party based on the food of the country where your finger landed. Roger soon realised that a whole world of cuisine was out there that he knew absolutely nothing about. The idea so fascinated him that he abandoned his job and set out on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the planet, armed with just a suitcase, some phrase books and his palate. Eight months and twenty-five countries later, there had been ‘fifty-three moments when I took a bite of something so amazing that everything seemed to stop around me’, as well as a few experiences he wouldn’t go through again to save his life. They are all in this book - along with the merely good, the disappointing and the inedible. Anyone fancy rotten Icelandic shark?
