Inhaltsangabe: Steve Weiner's debut novel, The Museum of Love, was met with extraordinary praise that called up comparisons to "the delirious raw immediacy of the novels of Céline, Burroughs, and Genet and the cinematic disjunctions of Kronenberg and Lynch" ( Los Angeles Times Book Review).
Moodily operatic in tone and brilliantly detailed, The Yellow Sailor follows the trajectories of four sailors and the owner of a German merchant ship that sets sail from Hamburg in 1914. After the ship wrecks in shallow water, the men drift their separate ways, with each man's journey across a desolate wartime European landscape becoming an exploration of the failure of love, sex, religion, and friendship.
Elegantly grotesque and baroquely compelling, The Yellow Sailor is a chiaroscuroed search for love, dimly and briefly lit by flashes of hope, until gorgeous hallucinations overwhelm the bleak and tentative future.
Über den Autor: Steve Weiner was born in Wisconsin, studied writing at the University of California, and went on to study film animation. His first novel, The Museum of Love, was published in eight countries to wide acclaim and shortlisted for Canada's prestigious Giller Prize.
