Eleven : a novel by Mark Watson( Book )
25 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Xavier Ireland is the assumed name of a radio-show host with a devoted following of listeners riveted by the sleepless loners who call in throughout the night to seek his advice. Off the air, he leads a low-key life of avoiding his neighbors, playing Scrabble, and maintaining an awkward friendship with his cohost, Murray. But his life begins to change when he meets a cleaning lady named Pippa, who becomes a constant, surprisingly necessary presence in his life as he starts facing up to his past and discovering solace and redemption in the most unexpected places. British comedian Mark Watson{u2019}s North American debut humorously and poignantly explores life and death, strangers and friends, heartache and comfort, and whether the choices we don{u2019}t make affect us just as powerfully as the ones we do."--Page 4 of cover

Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern Dominic ist Hochzeitsfotograf und verbringt seine Wochenenden damit, die glücklichsten Tage anderer Menschen festzuhalten. In seinem eigenen Leben spielt Glück eher keine Rolle. Er ist meist der, der im Schatten steht, der an zweiter Stelle genannt wird. Einzig seine grosse Schwester Victoria begegnet ihm auf Augenhöhe und macht ihn zum Komplizen ihres aufregenden Lebenswandels. Doch bald läuft er Gefahr, sie zu verlieren. Dies ist die Geschichte von Dominic. Und die seiner Familie. Und all der kleinen Dinge, die ein Leben ausmachen. Dominic Kitchen ist Hochzeitsfotograf. An jedem Samstag hält er den glücklichsten Tag im Leben der Brautpaare fest, den Tag, an dem sie den Bund fürs Leben schliessen. Er selbst befindet sich immer auf der anderen Seite der Kamera, im Hintergrund. Den Konventionen entsprechend, heiratet er eine nette Frau und lebt sein Leben. Mehr und mehr wird dieses jedoch von einer alten Sehnsucht beherrscht, die ihn zu zerstören beginnt, und er weiss: Er kann niemals glücklich werden. Tagtäglich versucht er, eine Scheinwelt aufrechtzuerhalten und seine Gefühle zu verbergen - doch langsam schwinden seine Kräfte. Innerlich spürt er, wie sich ein Knoten immer enger zusammenzieht, ein Knoten, der sein eigenes Glück massiv bedroht. Denn er liebt eine andere. Und irgendwann kommt der Moment, in dem er seine geheimen Wünsche nicht länger unterdrücken kann. Mark Watson, geboren 1980 in Bristol, ist Romanautor, Kolumnist, Radio- und Fernsehmoderator und international erfolgreicher Stand-up-Comedian. Er ist ausserdem Fussball-Experte, studierter Literaturwissenschaftler und Umweltaktivist. Er ist bekannt für Marathonauftritte, die 24 Stunden und länger dauern.

Rückwärtsleben Roman by Mark Watson( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Auf der Couch des Lebens Bereits von klein auf steht Peter in Konkurrenz zu seinem Klassenkameraden Richard. Immer ist er einen Schritt zurück. Schafft er es, sich drei Tischtennisbälle in den Mund zu stopfen, trumpft Richard mit vier Bällen auf. Der Zweikampf der beiden bestimmt auch ihr späteres Berufsleben, denn beide werden erfolgreiche Psychologen. Peter versucht mit allen Methoden, die Oberhand zu gewinnen - mit folgenschweren Konsequenzen. Mark Watson über "Rückwärtsleben": "Rückwärtsleben wurde durch den amerikanischen Therapiewahn der siebziger Jahre inspiriert, als sich einfach jeder (vom Filmstar bis hin zur Putzfrau) einer Psychoanalyse unterzog. Man versuchte, das Leben durch viele verschiedene Dinge zu erklären, angefangen von der modernen Wissenschaft hin zu antiken Tragödien. Es geht um eine Freundschaft, die gleichzeitig eine Rivalität ist. Was passiert, wenn man im Schatten einer ungleich erfolgreicheren Person leben muss? Die Antwort ist nicht so einfach - denn selbst, wenn man es sich zum Beruf gemacht hat, die Psyche anderer Menschen zu analysieren, heisst das noch lange nicht, dass man seine eigene versteht ..."
