"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

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and German and held by 121 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 ..." 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. Mark Watson lebt mit seiner Frau und seinem Sohn in London. "Ich könnte am Samstag" (Hardcover: "Elf Leben") war sein erster ins Deutsche übersetzter Roman, zuletzt erschien von ihm "Überlebensgross"

This is the dazzling and ambitious new novel from acclaimed author and stand-up comedian Mark Watson. Three decades ago, the charismatic Howard York built the empire of his dreams: the Hotel Alpha. It was once the finest in London, but over the years, as the world around it has moved on at an ever more dizzying rate, the hotel has struggled to keep pace. Graham, the Alpha's concierge, has been behind the front desk since the day the hotel opened and has witnessed every stage of its history. Chaz, Howard's blind adopted son, has almost never ventured outside its walls. Both of them view the Alpha as their sanctuary, the place that gives them everything they need. But both of them must now accept that the Alpha no longer offers them the life they most want, and that Howard's vision has been built on secrets as well as dreams
