LONG WAY HOME - SOMMER IN NEW YORK ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Drückende Sommerhitze in New Yorks Lower East Side. Hier teilen sich Victor, sein Bruder Nino und seine Schwester Vicki ein Zimmer in der kleinen Wohnung ihrer resoluten Großmutter, die strengen Blickes über die heranwachsenden Jugendlichen wacht. Victor, der älteste der drei Geschwister und deshalb unter besonderer Beobachtung seiner Großmutter, hält sich für einen unwiderstehlichen Verführer und für den besten Lover, den das Viertel je gesehen hat. Lässig hängt er sich das weiße Unterhemd über die Schulter, lässt die Muskeln spielen und leckt sich mit der Zunge lasziv über die Lippen, weil er das für die ultimative Masche hält, um bei den Mädchen anzukommen. Auf diese Weise glaubt er auch Judy Gonzales begeistern zu können, das hübscheste Mädchen in der Nachbarschaft. Doch Judy lässt ihn eiskalt abblitzen. Als er mit ihrem jüngeren Bruder einen Deal eingeht, scheint Victor zunächst Erfolg zu haben: Judy akzeptiert ihn als ihren "neuen Typen". Dafür hat Victor nun zu Hause Probleme: Seine starrköpfige Großmutter sieht bei ihrem frühreifen Enkel nur schlechte Manieren. Aus Angst, er könne seine Geschwister verderben, will sie ihn ins Heim verfrachten. Victor will das Vertrauen seiner Großmutter wiedergewinnen, aber andererseits auch von seinen Geschwistern und natürlich vor allem von Judy anerkannt sein. So muss er lernen, dass es nicht dasselbe ist, den großen Mann zu markieren oder wirklich ein Mann zu sein... Quelle: arte
