Inhaltsangabe zu „Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever?“ von Dave Eggers

Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever? is Dave Eggers's brilliantly executed story of one man struggling to make sense of the world. In a barracks on an abandoned military base, miles from the nearest road, Thomas watches as the man he has brought wakes up. Kev, a NASA astronaut, doesn't recognize his captor, though Thomas remembers him. Kev cries for help. He pulls at the chain. But the ocean is close by, and nobody can hear him over the waves and wind. Thomas apologizes. He didn't want to have to resort to this. But they really needed to have a conversation, and Kev didn't answer his messages. And now, if Kev can just stop yelling, Thomas has a few questions. 'One of our fiercest and most compelling writers' Sunday Times 'Eggers can write about pretty much anything and make it glitter and somersault on the page . . . dazzling and highly original' Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times 'Possibly the most admired and emulated American author of his generation' Independent Dave Eggers is the author of nine books, including most recently The Circle and A Hologram for the King, which was a finalist for the 2012 National Book Award. He is the founder of McSweeney's, an independent publishing company based in San Francisco that produces books, a quarterly journal of new writing (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern), and a monthly magazine, The Believer. McSweeney's also publishes Voice of Witness, a nonprofit book series that uses oral history to illuminate human rights crises around the world. Eggers is the co-founder of 826 National, a network of eight tutoring centers around the country and ScholarMatch, a nonprofit organization designed to connect students with resources, schools and donors to make college possible. He lives in Northern California with his family. (Quelle:'E-Buch Text/03.07.2014')

Leider konnte ich auch nach 550 Seiten nicht mit Miquel Gensana und seiner Familiengeschichte warm werden.
