Brigitte Kronauer spricht in diesem Buch von der Wertschätzung für ihre literarischen »Favoriten«. Sie schmeckt dem Aroma von deren Literatur nach und versucht hinter das Geheimnis ihrer Wirkung zu kommen. Mal schmecken die Lieblinge süß, mal bitter, am besten beides zugleich. Dieser Empfindung traut sie unbeirrt, manchmal bis zu glühender Parteilichkeit. Die Zuneigung kann sich dabei auf das Gesamtwerk, auf ein einzelnes Buch oder einen Werkabschnitt beziehen, ohne dass die menschlichen und wirtschaftlichen Debakel vergessen werden. Immer aber sind es verführerische und emphatische Aufforderungen zu eigener Lektüre. Die »Favoriten«: Georg Büchner, Joseph Conrad, William Faulkner, Hubert Fichte, Grimmelshausen, Knut Hamsun, Helmut Heißenbüttel, Eckhard Henscheid, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Victor Hugo, Herman Melville, Eduard Mörike, Hans Erich Nossack, Jean Paul, Wilhelm Raabe, Marie-Luise Scherer, Adalbert Stifter, Robert Walser, William Carlos Williams, Ror Wolf, Virginia Woolf
Gibt es etwas Heimtückischeres, als dem Pony eines todkranken Mädchens den Fuß abzuhacken? Ja, die Tatsache, dass Detektiv Sid Halley dem Schuldigen nichts anhaben kann. Denn der ist im ganzen Land bekannt nicht als Täter, sondern als Talkmaster.
It all started three days after I officially became a woman -- the message of mass destruction arrived. It was February 14, to be exact. Happy Valentine´s Day. Sara Thurman has never considered herself part of the popular crowd - she´s got her best friend Arlene and that seems like enough. But when Sara´s mom sends a special Valentine´s Day delivery (PERIOD FLOWERS!) to her class, all of a sudden Sara is very famous - only for a horribly embarrassing reason! It seems everyone at Bowie Junior High knows something about Sara that she´d rather keep to herself and the harder Sara tries to blend in the more she ends up sticking out. Not only that, but it suddenly seems that Arlene doesn´t have time for her anymore, and she has an unbearable crush on Jason who doesn´t have any idea who she is (until now, that is). Worst of all, nothing´s felt the same since Sara´s dad left home. It all has Sara wondering if things will ever return to normal -- especially if she can´t even remember what normal feels like. Sara can´t figure out why it seems that everyone else has it easier than she does - would things be better if she were popular? Sara decides that if she can´t beat ´em then she´ll join ´em -- and she hatches a top secret mission to become....Class Favorite.
