Wie wir begehren (German Edition) by Carolin Emcke PDF

By Carolin Emcke

ISBN-10: 3100170180

ISBN-13: 9783100170187

ISBN-10: 3596187192

ISBN-13: 9783596187195

Wer sind wir? Wer können wir sein, wer wollen wir sein,
wenn wir anders sind als die Norm ?

Entdecken wir das Begehren oder entdeckt das Begehren uns? Wie frei sind wir, unser Begehren zu leben? Hat es nur eine shape oder ändert es sich, wird tiefer, zarter, radikaler?
In ihrem so persönlichen wie analytischen textual content schildert Carolin Emcke das Suchen und die allmähliche Entdeckung des eigenen, etwas anderen Begehrens. Sie erzählt von einem homosexuellen Coming of Age, von einer Jugend in den 1980er Jahren, in der über Sexualität nicht gesprochen wurde. Sie buchstabiert die vielen Dialekte des Begehrens aus, beschreibt die Lust der Erfüllung, aber auch die Tragik, die gesellschaftliche Ausgrenzung dessen, der sein Begehren nicht artikulieren kann. Eine atemberaubend ehrliche Erzählung, die gleichermaßen intim wie politisch ist.

»Ein eindrückliches Buch über Liebe und Freiheit.«
Jens Bisky, Süddeutsche Zeitung

»Carolin Emcke (…) arbeitet mit einer gedanklichen und sprachlichen Präzision, die ihresgleichen sucht, und einem intellektuellen Mut, der bewundernswert ist.«
Heribert Prantl

Molto si parlò di questo libro, quando apparve nel 1979.
