Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - MY father and mother, Lord and Lady Yu Keng, and family, together with our suite consisting of the First Secretary, Second Secretary, Naval and Military Attaches, Chancellors, their families, servants, etc., - altogether fifty-five people, - arrived in Shanghai on January 2, 1903, on the S.S. "Annam" from Paris, where for four years my father had been Chinese Minister. Our arrival was anything but pleasant, as the rain came down in torrents, and we had the greatest difficulty getting our numerous retinue landed and safely housed, not to mention the tons of baggage that had to be looked after. We had found from previous experience that none of our Legation people or servants could be depended upon to do anything when travelling, in consequence of which the entire charge devolved upon my mother, who was without doubt the genius of the party in arranging matters and straightening out difficulties. When the launch from the steamer arrived at the jetty off the French Bund, we were met by the Shanghai Taotai (the highest official in the city), the Shanghai Magistrate and numerous other officials, all dressed in their official robes. The Taotai told my father that he had prepared the Tien Ho Gung (Temple of the Queen of Heaven) for us to reside in during our stay in Shanghai, but my father refused the offer, saying that he had telegraphed from Hong Kong and made all arrangements to go to the Hotel des Colonies in the French Concession. We had had previous experience staying in this temple while on our way to Japan, where my father went as Minister in 1895, and did not care to try it a second time. The building is very old and very much out of repair. It was a beautiful place in its prime, but had been allowed to go to rack and ruin. The custom is that the magistrate has to find a place and supply the food, etc., for high officials when passing through, and it is not exactly the thing to refuse their kind offer, but my father was always very independent and politely declined all proffers of assistance.

Warum reisen wir? Woher der feste Glaube, dass es uns an einem anderen Ort besser ginge? Der Himmel blauer wäre, das Lebensgefühl »echter«, das Essen besser. Warum schreiben wir manchen Orten eine geradezu paradiesische Aura zu, nur um im nächsten Moment festzustellen, dass das Paradies definitiv woanders sein muss? Geoff Dyer geht diesen Fragen in seinem neuen Buch auf den Grund. Mit einzigartiger Beobachtungsgabe und sprühendem Witz nimmt er uns mit auf seine Reisen durch die Welt. Er berichtet von dem Versuch, in Französisch-Polynesien Gauguins Traumland zu finden, von seinem Trip in die Verbotene Stadt in Peking, auf dem er sich in seine Führerin verguckt, von seiner Reise ins eisige Norwegen, zu den Nordlichtern, die aber nicht den Anstand besitzen, rechtzeitig aufzutauchen. In einer furiosen Mischung aus Reisebericht, Essay, Kulturkritik und Fiktion erzählt er von erhebenden Momenten genauso wie von Situationen grandiosen Scheiterns. Kaum ein Autor vermag so anspruchsvoll, klug, elegant und lustig über die grundlegenden Fragen des Menschseins zu schreiben.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.
