Two cousins, irreversibly damaged by a childhood prank whose devastating consequences changed both their lives, reunite twenty years later to renovate a medieval castle in Eastern Europe, a castle steeped in blood lore and family pride. Built over a secret system of caves and tunnels, the castle and its violent history invoke and subvert all the elements of a gothic past: twins, a pool, an old baroness, a fearsome tower. In an environment of extreme paranoia, cut off from the outside world, the men reenact the signal event of their youth, with even more catastrophic results. And as the full horror of their predicament unfolds, a prisoner, in jail for an unnamed crime, recounts an unforgettable story--a story about two cousins who unite to renovate a castle--that brings the crimes of the past and present into piercing relation.--From publisher description

Black Box by Jennifer Egan( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für ihren erfolgreichen Roman >>Der größere Teil der Welt<< erhielt Jennifer Egan den Pulitzer-Preis und zahlreiche andere Auszeichnungen - nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil sie in ihrem Werk immer wieder mit Erzählweisen experimentiert und verblüffend präzise unser heutiges Lebensgefühl trifft oder sogar Blicke in die Zukunft wagt. Für ihre neue Geschichte >>Black Box<< gibt es noch keine Bezeichnung, denn auch hier betritt sie Neuland: Die Story wurde getwittert und erschien erst, nachdem die Kurznachrichten gesendet waren, gebündelt im New Yorker. In der festgelegten Zeichenzahl von 140 Zeichen pro Tweet entfaltet Jennifer Egans Text eine ungeheure Explosionskraft. Eine namenlose, auf sich gestellte Frau ist auf einen hochrangigen Verbrecher angesetzt: Ihre Aufzeichnungen entfesseln eine atemberaubende, von Agententhrillern inspirierte Verfolgungsjagd, offenbaren dabei aber auch schonungslos den Umgang mit weiblicher Schönheit und technisch aufgerüsteten Körpern - eben als Black Box
