Get Legende vom Glück des Menschen: Roman (German Edition) PDF

By Peggy Mädler

ISBN-10: 3869710322

ISBN-13: 9783869710327

Woraus aber besteht das Glück?
Ziemlich viel, scheint es, hat sich Peggy Mädler mit ihrem Debütroman vorgenommen – denn in ihrem von Geschichten prallen Buch geht es darum, wie Glück entsteht, wie Gesellschaft funktioniert und wie deepest Erinnerung und die große Geschichte zueinander stehen. Die bescheidene, gewitzte und elegante paintings, mit der sie die Anmaßung der Fragestellungen erzählerisch unterläuft, macht ihren Erstling zu einem Kabinettstück der deutschen Literatur.
Knapp fünfzehn Jahre nach der Wende findet die junge Erzählerin im Nachlass der Großeltern ein Buch, das ihr Großvater zu einem Betriebsjubiläum geschenkt bekommen hat. Ein Fotoband von 1968, der »Vom Glück des Menschen« heißt, komponiert und betextet von Rita Maahs und Karl Eduard von Schnitzler. Die Anmaßung eines politisch verordneten Glücks irritiert die Enkelin. Wie kann ein Staat auf die Idee kommen, seinen Bürgern vorzuschreiben, wie sie glücklich werden? Anhand weiterer Fundstücke aus dem Nachlass beginnt sie zu rekonstruieren, wie sich ihre Großeltern kurz vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg kennenlernten, heirateten und sich nach dessen Ende quickly wie Fremde wieder gegenüberstanden, wie ihr Vater und ihre Mutter sich in der DDR kennenlernten und durchschlugen und wie sie, die Erzählerin selbst, und ihr älterer Bruder die Wende und die Zeit danach erlebten.
Dabei überschreibt Peggy Mädler je ein Kapitel aus dem Propagandaband mit »Legenden« aus der Familiengeschichte ihrer Erzählerin. So entstehen die »Legende vom Glück der Arbeit«, die »Legende vom Glück des Miteinanders« usw., und plötzlich wird klar: Ob und wie Menschen das Glück finden, hat oft weniger mit den großen Rahmenbedingungen zu tun, als mit privaten Begegnungen, kleinen Gesten und unspektakulären Zufällen. Und: Die besten Geschichten schreibt nicht die Geschichte, sondern das Leben selbst.
Peggy Mädler ist dabei ein enorm warmherziger, reicher und sprachlich immens variabler Romanerstling gelungen.
Ein Buch, das irgendwie glücklich macht.
