Nur wenn sich Mitchell in die Logik des Untergangs vertieft, schafft er es, seine Angst zu beherrschen. Die Vorstellung von einem ökologischen Kollaps, einem Kriegsausbruch oder einer Naturkatastrophe hat für ihn etwas Beruhigendes - was ihn in seinem Beruf als Risikoanalyst zu einem der Besten macht. Trotzdem versucht er händeringend, einen letzten Kontakt mit der Realität aufrechtzuerhalten. Denn seine ehemalige Kommilitonin Elsa Brunner muss mit einer angeborenen Krankheit leben und kennt daher überhaupt keine Angst. Doch gerade als Mitchells Prognosen einen albtraumhaften Höhepunkt erreichen, sucht ein Unheil Manhattan heim. Mitchell begreift, dass niemand sonst so gut davon profitieren könnte wie er. Aber zu welchem Preis? Nathaniel Rich geboren 1980, schreibt Essays und Rezensionen u.a. für die "New York Review of Books", "Vanity Fair", "The New York Times" und "Harper's Magazine". "Schlechte Aussichten" ist sein zweiter Roman und zugleich sein erstes Buch in deutscher Übersetzung. Er lebt in New Orleans
