Milch und Honig

Wladimir Lortschenkow erzählt eine wahnwitzige Geschichte von Grenzwächtern und Gastarbeitern, von Traum und Elend, Armut und Reichtum und von der Doppelmoral der Diplomatie. Die Bewohner des Dorfes Larga in Moldau haben einen Traum: Italien. Ihr Heimatland Moldau zählt zu den ärmsten Ländern Europas; Italien scheint dagegen wie das Paradies auf Erden. Leider ist der offizielle Weg dorthin versperrt. Doch wo ein Wille ist, ist auch ein Weg: Serafim lebt zwanzig Jahre von Wasser und Brot, um sich auf das Erlernen der italienischen Sprache zu konzentrieren. Allerdings hat er niemanden, an dem er seine Kenntnisse überprüfen könnte. Der Traktorist Wassili hingegen bezweifelt die Existenz des sagenumwobenen Italien, bis ihn Serafim eines Tages überredet, seinen Traktor flugtauglich zu machen, um endlich aus Moldau zu entkommen. Und während Serafim und Wassili beginnen, das unwahrscheinlichste aller Luftfahrschiffe zu konstruieren, hält es selbst der Präsident von Moldau in seinem eigenen Land nicht mehr aus: Er fingiert einen Flugzeugabsturz, um mit dem Fallschirm über Italien abzuspringen und als Pizzabäcker endlich ein Leben in Würde und Wohlstand zu führen.

Breathturn into Timestead

Paul Celan, one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, created an oeuvre that stands as testimony to the horrors of his times and as an attempt to chart a topography for a new, uncontaminated language and world. Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry gathers the five final volumes of his life's work in a bilingual edition, translated and with commentary by the award-winning poet and translator Pierre Joris. This collection displays a mature writer at the height of his talents, following what Celan himself called the "turn" (Wende) of his work away from the lush, surreal metaphors of his earlier verse. Given "the sinister events in its memory," Celan be...
