Die Handlung des Romans schwingt in großen Bögen von den 50er Jahren in die heutige Zeit und zurück, fahrt von New York durch die Weiten Amerikas bis in die Wüste Arizonas. Nick Shay, der eine Schuld aus seiner Jugend in sich trägt, arbeitet und lebt mit seiner Familie in Arizona. In der Wüste von Arizona bemalt Klara Sax, die leidenschaftlich für ihre Unabhängigkeit von Familie und Konventionen gekämpft hat, den Abfall der Geschichte, ausrangierte B-52 Bomber, und schafft ein gigantisches Kunstobjekt. In New York, in der Bronx, hatten Nick und Klara einst eine kurze, leidenschaftliche Affäre. Ihre Lebensläufe, ihre Erinnerungen verbinden sich mit einer Vielzahl von unvergeßlichen Figuren, fiktiven und historischen, mit politischen, sportlichen und künstlerischen Ereignissen und mit einem Baseball, der 1951 bei einem berühmten Spiel geschlagen wurde, als zum gleichen Zeitpunkt die Sowjetunion ihre erste Atombombe zündete. Kunstvoll komponiert, in einer lebendigen, originellen und facettenreichen Sprache geschrieben, ist Unterwelt ein unvergleichlicher Roman, ein Bild Amerikas, ein Bild unserer Zeit und unserer Welt. In seinem großen Roman Unterwelt beschwört Don DeLillo ein faszinierendes Panorama der letzten Hälfte dieses Jahrhunderts. Unsere Alltagswelt, Kunst, Sport und Politik, die alles bestimmende Bilderflut von der Werbung bis zum Internet spiegeln sich im Leben der Figuren, in deren Mittelpunkt Nick Shay, Manager in einer Müllentsorgungsfirma, und Klara Sax, eine Konzeptkünstlerin, stehen.
This debut novel by the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of The Underground Railroad wowed critics and readers everywhere and marked the debut of an important American writer. It is a time of calamity in a major metropolitan city's Department of Elevator Inspectors, and Lila Mae Watson, the first black female elevator inspector in the history of the department, is at the center of it. There are two warring factions within the department: the Empiricists, who work by the book and dutifully check for striations on the winch cable and such; and the Intuitionists, who are simply able to enter the elevator cab in question, meditate, and intuit any defects. Lila Mae is an Intuitionist and, it just so happens, has the highest accuracy rate in the entire department. But when an elevator in a new city building goes into total freefall on Lila Mae's watch, chaos ensues. It's an election year in the Elevator Guild, and the good-old-boy Empiricists would love nothing more than to assign the blame to an Intuitionist. But Lila Mae is never wrong. The sudden appearance of excerpts from the lost notebooks of Intuitionism's founder, James Fulton, has also caused quite a stir. The notebooks describe Fulton's work on the "black box," a perfect elevator that could reinvent the city as radically as the first passenger elevator did when patented by Elisha Otis in the nineteenth century. When Lila Mae goes underground to investigate the crash, she becomes involved in the search for the portions of the notebooks that are still missing and uncovers a secret that will change her life forever.
Wenn einer wirklich über die Hells Angels schreiben darf, dann Hunter S. Thompson »Der harte Kern, die Outlaw-Elite, das waren die Hells Angels.« Für seinen brisanten Insiderbericht über den Aufstieg der Hells Angels zur größten und berüchtigtsten Motorradgang der Welt nahm Thompson Mitte der sechziger Jahre über ein Jahr lang am exzessiven, gewalttätigen und freiheitsliebenden Leben der Angels teil. Das Kultbuch, das Hunter S. Thompson bekannt machte – jetzt zur Debatte als Neuausgabe.
When Andrew Carson joined the United States Army in 1941, he was promised good food, travel, a supply of clothing, a place to sleep, and thirty dollars a month. Within seven weeks, Private Carson was shipped to the Philippines--with no boot camp, no training, not one minute of close order drill. Captured by the Japanese less than one year later, the young soldier endured the hardships of the Cabanatuan prison camps, nearly died from dysentery, and then was put aboard a Japanese hellship bound for Japan. There, he worked in the Fukuoa coal mines, a virtual slave laborer until Japan surrendered. This is the harrowing tale of one man's survival, and how he came through the ordeal with dignity and respect for his fellow soldiers.
