17 Erzählungen des 1938 in Irland geborenen und heute in Los Angeles lebenden Erzählers, der sich bisher durch ein phantasievoll-satirisches Werk ausgewiesen hat (zuletzt BA 11/93; 3/94).

Veröffentlichung, fügt er Absurdes, Surrealistisches, Komisches und Realistisches zu höchst überraschenden Abbildern des menschlichen und gesellschaftlichen Lebens in Amerika und anderswo. Da übersetzt in einem amerikanischen Primatenzentrum ein Schimpanse Darwins Abstammungslehre, eine weibliche Kampftruppe verbucht grosse Erfolge gegen den Alkoholismus, ein Mann erfährt Schlimmes bei der Reparatur seines Autos.

Haunted by the burden of his family's traitorous past, woozy with pot, cheap wine, and sex, and disturbed by a frighteningly real encounter with some family ghosts, Walter Van Brunt is about to have a collision with history. It will lead Walter to search for his lost father. And it will send the story into the past of the Hudson River Valley, from the late 1960s, back to the anticommunist riots of the 1940s, to the late seventeenth century, where the long-hidden secrets of three families - the aristocratic Van Warts, the Native American Mohonks, and Walter's own ancestors, the Van Brunts - will be revealed
A friend of the earth by T. Coraghessan Boyle( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in German and Italian and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"It is the year 2025, and Tyrone O'Shaughnessy Tierwater is eking out a bleak living in Southern California, managing a pop star's private menagerie of the species "only a mother could love"--Scruffy hyenas, jackals, warthogs and three down-at-the-mouth lions. Global warming is a reality. The biosphere has collapsed in a grim but pointed way, and most of the major mammalian species - not to mention fish, birds and frogs - are extinct." "At one time, as we see in alternating chapters, Ty was a passionate environmentalist, so committed to saving the earth that he became an eco-terrorist and, ultimately, a convicted felon. As a member of the radical environmental group Earth Forever!, he unwittingly endangered both his wife, Andrea, and his daugther, Sierra (who herself became an icon of the Movement as an inveterate tree-sitter in the late nineties). Now, when he's just trying to survive in a world torn by obdurate storms and winnowing drought, Andrea comes back into his life."--Jacket

Drop City by T. Coraghessan Boyle( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 4 libraries worldwide
T.C. Boyle has proven himself to be a master storyteller who can do just about anything. But even his most ardent admirers may be caught off guard by his ninth novel, for Boyle has delivered something completely unexpected: a serious and richly rewarding character study that is his most accomplished and deeply satisfying work to date. It is 1970, and a down-at-the-heels California commune has decided to relocate to the last frontier-the unforgiving landscape of interior Alaska-in the ultimate expression of going back to the land. The novel opposes two groups of characters: Sess Harder, his wife Pamela, and other young Alaskans who are already homesteading in the wilderness and the brothers and sisters of Drop City, who, despite their devotion to peace, free love, and the simple life, find their commune riven by tensions. As these two communities collide, their alliances shift and unexpected friendships and dangerous enmities are born as everyone struggles with the bare essentials of life: love, nourishment, and a roof over one's head. Drop City is not a satire or a nostalgic look at the sixties, though its evocation of the period is presented with a truth and clarity that no book on that era has achieved. This is a surprising book, a rich, allusive, and nonsentimental look at the ideals of a generation and their impact on today's radically transformed world. Above all, it is a novel infused with the lyricism and take-no-prisoners storytelling for which T.C. Boyle is justly famous
