Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in German and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"From the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook comes the uproarious and poignant story of one very fat man and one very small country Meet Misha Vainberg, aka Snack Daddy, a 325-pound disaster of a human being, son of the 1,238th-richest man in Russia, proud holder of a degree in multicultural studies from Accidental College, USA (don't even ask), and patriot of no country save the great City of New York. Poor Misha just wants to live in the South Bronx with his hot Latina girlfriend, but after his gangster father murders an Oklahoma businessman in Russia, all hopes of a U.S. visa are lost. Salvation lies in the tiny, oil-rich nation of Absurdistan, where a crooked consular officer will sell Misha a Belgian passport. But after a civil war breaks out between two competing ethnic groups and a local warlord installs hapless Misha as minister of multicultural affairs, our hero soon finds himself covered in oil, fighting for his life, falling in love, and trying to figure out if a normal life is still possible in the twenty-first century. With the enormous success of The Russian Debutant's Handbook, Gary Shteyngart established himself as a central figure in today's literary world--"one of the most talented and entertaining writers of his generation," according to The New York Observer. In Absurdistan, he delivers an even funnier and wiser literary performance. Misha Vainberg is a hero for the new century, a glimmer of humanity in a world of dashed hopes."--Publisher's website

William T. Vollmann, der in einer Reihe mit Thomas Pynchon und David Foster Wallace steht, hat mit Europe Central ein Krieg und Frieden für das 21. Jahrhundert geschrieben - ein Epos in Übergrösse, in 37 Kapiteln von fiktiven und realen Personen, Künstlern wie Käthe Kollwitz und Dimitri Schostakowitsch oder Militärs wie General Wlassow und Friedrich Paulus, dem Verlierer von Stalingrad. Ihre Lebensgeschichten beschwören aufs Neue die Geschichte des Zweiten Weltkriegs auf sowjetischer und deutscher Seite herauf. Aber im Zentrum des Romans steht eine Liebe: die bedingungslose Liebe von Schostakowitsch zu Elena Konstantinowskaja. Schieben wir zur Seite, was wir über Geschichte wissen, und lassen wir uns ein auf dieses wagemutige, gewaltige, faszinierende, tiefgreifende und umfassende Werk: Europe Central. "Ein ?Krieg und Frieden? des 20. Jahrhunderts, mit dem sich Vollmann endgültig seinen Rang in der Weltliteratur gesichert hat." Welt am Sonntag William T. Vollmann, geboren 1959 in Los Angeles, Autor zahlreicher Romane, Erzählbände und Sachbücher, mehrfach ausgezeichnet, u.a. mit dem Whiting Award; regelmässige Veröffentlichungen in The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Wall Street Journalu.a.
