Das Geschenk einer späten Freundschaft - eine wichtige neue Erzählstimme aus AfrikaHortensia und Marion sind Nachbarinnen. Eine ist schwarz, eine weiß. Beide blicken auf beeindruckende Karrieren zurück. Ihre gegenseitige Abneigung pflegen sie mit viel Eifer, aber was wissen sie wirklich voneinander? ¿Yewande Omotoso bietet aufregende neue Einsichten. Das ästhetische und politische Engagement in ihrem Roman ist sichtbar in dem tiefen Mitgefühl, das sie ihren Heldinnen entgegenbringt. Obwohl sie deren Ansichten, Verfehlungen und heimliche Sehnsüchte kompromisslos offenlegt, erzählt sie in ihrer wunderschönen, fast heiteren Sprache von dem Recht auf einen individuellen Lebensentwurf unabhängig von Herkunft und Hautfarbe." Chris Abani, Autor von ¿Graceland""Yewande Omotoso erinnert an Nadine Gordimer. Sie untersucht die Geographie der Nähe, die die großen Kräfteverhältnisse im Kleinen abbildet." Times Literary Supplement"Voller Charme und verspielter Energie - und doch lauert die Geschichte der Kolonialherrschaft und der Sklaverei im Hintergrund." Herald Scotland

Dear Committee Members (English Edition)
The Friday Project
Finally a novel that puts the "pissed" back into "epistolary."Jason Fitger is a beleaguered professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University, a small and not very distinguished liberal arts college in the midwest. His department is facing draconian cuts and squalid quarters, while one floor above them the Economics Department is getting lavishly remodeled offices. His once-promising writing career is in the doldrums, as is his romantic life, in part as the result of his unwise use of his private affairs for his novels. His star (he thinks) student can't catch a break with his brilliant (he thinks) work Accountant in a Bordello, based on Melville's Bartleby. In short, his life is a tale of woe, and the vehicle this droll and inventive novel uses to tell that tale is a series of hilarious letters of recommendation that Fitger is endlessly called upon by his students and colleagues to produce, each one of which is a small masterpiece of high dudgeon, low spirits, and passive-aggressive strategies. We recommend Dear Committee Members to you in the strongest possible terms.
