"Lamb" traces the self-discovery of David Lamb, a narcissistic middle-aged man with a tendency toward dishonesty, in the weeks following the disintegration of his marriage and the death of his father. Hoping to regain some faith in his own goodness, he turns his attention to Tommie, an awkward and unpopular eleven-year-old girl. Lamb is convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness and even comes to believe that his devotion to Tommie is in her best interest. But when he decides to abduct a willing Tommie for a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies, planning to initiate her to the beauty of the mountain wilderness, they are both shaken in ways neither of them expects"--Jacket

Mr. Lamb Roman by Bonnie Nadzam( Book )
2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Ein älteres halbwüchsiges Mädchen schikaniert ein jüngeres - sie solle den Alten da vorn doch mal um ein paar Zigaretten anschnorren. Tommie hat Sommersprossen und trägt falsche Wimpern, und als Lamb ihr, statt die Zigaretten rauszurücken, ein gefaktes Kidnapping vorschlägt, um diesen Gören mal ein bisschen einzuheizen, willigt sie ein. Dass sie sich wiedersehen, ist zunächst Zufall. Bald aber redet Lamb, ausgelaugt und einsam wie er ist, sich ein, er könne Tommie eine andere Vorstellung vom Leben nahebringen, indem er ihr die Schönheit und Erhabenheit der Wildnis in den Rocky Mountains zeigt. Ein Akt der Mitmenschlichkeit, der schliesslich auch ihn selbst heilen könnte? Tommie, schwankend zwischen Vertrauen und Verletzlichkeit, fühlt sich angezogen von Lambs fragwürdiger Zuwendung: eine Dynamik von Anziehung und Bedürftigkeit, von Grenzüberschreitung und Manipulation entsteht, die sich der Kontrolle beider zunehmend entzieht ...

Sie publizierte Gedichte und Kurzprosa in verschiedenen Zeitschriften, Mr. Lambist ihr erster Roman, von der Presse hoch gelobt und ausgezeichnet mit dem Flaherty Dunnan First Novel Prize 2011
Uncertain fictions: fictional forms addressing philosophical uncertainty in the enlightenment; Lamb by Bonnie Nadzam( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the Eighteenth Century, as English men and women disputed the longstanding authority of the monarchy and the church, reorienting themselves spiritually and politically in the century following The Great Revolution, Enlightenment thinking also manifested more broadly in philosophical questions: What is the world as it is versus the world as it seems? Is the sensible world and its phenomena independent of the human mind? What is a person? How is one person not another person? How do I know what I know? To what extent do I create the very phenomena I sense? Is a person in the mind or in the body? In the memory? Where does a person go when asleep? When drunk? Conscious? Unconscious? ❧ All of these are questions that were addressed by eighteenth-century thinkers of natural science, politics, spirituality and—as this project claims and explores—verbal representational works of art; for the poetic and prose forms with which eighteenth-century writers chose to represent the world are inextricably bound up with an author’s postulations about character, narration, mimesis. In particular, this project examines how these aforementioned philosophical questions piqued Enlightenment writers of what is now generally—and anachronistically—called “fiction.” ❧ This project is not concerned so much with these aforementioned questions or with any philosophical approaches to resolving them as it is with the way that the questions themselves manifested—sometimes in particular forms of narration, or in particular presentations of character—in the very forms of early, experimental “fictions.” From the satires of Pope and Swift through the fictional experiments of Laurence Sterne, Henry Fielding, and Jane Austen, the page quickly and indisputably became a place where authors and readers alike might postulate resolutions to some of these philosophical questions. ❧ The extent to which fiction can be a place for political and philosophical argument—at least in terms of the questions raised a
