The Son by Philipp Meyer( Book )

88 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 3,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, this is a novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Spring, 1849. Eli McCullough is thirteen years old when a marauding band of Comanches takes him captive. Brave and clever, Eli quickly adapts to life among the Comanches, learning their ways and waging war against their enemies, including white men, which complicates his sense of loyalty and understanding of who he is. But when disease, starvation, and overwhelming numbers of armed Americans decimate the tribe, Eli finds himself alone. Neither white nor Indian, civilized nor fully wild, he must carve a place for himself in a world in which he does not fully belong, a journey of adventure, tragedy, hardship, grit, and luck that reverberates in the lives of his progeny"--

Nic Nicosia by Nic Nicosia( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer and filmmaker Nic Nicosia makes pictures. Since the late 1970s, Nicosia has staged and constructed sets, objects, and situations to be photographed rather than to reproduce something that already exists. These conceptual fabrications have ranged from elaborate sets with live actors to dioramas and abstract constructions. Whether his pictures contain a disturbing suburban narrative, or are fabricated by the act of drawing, or are simply created by the use of common objects with dramatic lighting, the familiar thread of Nicosia's unique vision and sensibility is always present. Nic Nicosia is the first major publication of the artist's work and covers his entire oeuvre through 2011. The catalog presents images from all of Nicosia's major photographic series, including Domestic Dramas, Near (modern) Disasters, The Cast, Life as We Know It, Real Pictures, Love + Lust, Acts, Sex Acts, Untitled Landscapes, 365 SaFe Days, Untitled (drawing), Space Time Light, I See Light, and in the absence of others, as well as stills from the videos Middletown, Moving Picture, Middletown Morning, Cerchi E Quadratti, On Acting America, and 9 1/2 Hours to SaFe. Accompanying the catalog is an overview of Nicosia's career by Michelle White, an interview with the artist by Sue Graze, and an original short story by Philipp Meyer that powerfully resonates with the sense of wonder and menace in Nicosia's art."--

Der erste Sohn vollständige Lesung by Philipp Meyer( Recording )

6 editions published in 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der episch angelegte, genau recherchierte und detailreiche Roman (Buch: ID-A 29/14) erzählt die Geschichte des Staates Texas und die Geschichte der Familie McCullough über 6 Generationen hinweg und aus 3 Perspektiven: Eli, geboren 1836, wird als Kind bei einem Überfall entführt und wächst bei den Comanchen auf. Später begründet er den Wohlstand der Familie durch Rinderzucht und Öl und verteidigt seinen Besitz mit tödlicher Härte. Sein Enkel Peter dagegen verabscheut Gewalt und leidet lebenslang darunter, einen blutigen Rachefeldzug gegen die mexikanischen Ranchnachbarn nicht verhindert zu haben. Dessen Enkelin Jeanne Anne wiederum hat Elis Härte geerbt und macht die Ranch schliesslich zum Zentrum eines mächtigen Ölimperiums. Die renommierten Schauspieler Jürgen Tarrach (Peter), Regina Lemnitz (Jeanne Anne) und vor allem Hans Peter Hallwachs (Eli) mit seiner rauen, etwas brüchigen Stimme machen die ungekürzte Lesung zu einem fast 21 Stunden währenden Hörgenuss. Breite Empfehlung

Philipp Meyers generasjonsroman fra 1800-tallets Texas beskriver datidens konflikt mellom natur og kultur: kampen om land mellom nybyggerne og de innfødte, deretter mellom rancheierne og oljeutviklerne. Det hele starter da Eli McCollough som 13-åring blir vitne til at familien hans slaktes ned av comancher. Han adopteres av høvdingen og vokser opp som en av dem. Sykdom, sult og krig rammer imidlertid indianerstammen hardt og gjør til slutt at Eli står alene igjen. Fremtiden skal komme til å preges av eventyrlige opplevelser, men også blodslit og tøffe valg som får konsekvenser for alle hans etterkommere
