Die Geschichte meiner Z hne

Author: Valeria Luiselli
Publisher: Antje Kunstmann

Release Date: 2016-03-16
Genre: Fiction

Gustavo Sánchez hat eine Mission: Jeder seiner hässlichen Zähne muss ersetzt werden. Glücklicherweise ist er Auktionator – der weltbeste Auktionator –, was ihm dabei hilft, Geld für die neuen Zähne zu sammeln. Dabei entdeckt er, dass es entscheidend ist, die Objekte, die er anbietet, mit Geschichten auszustatten. Das steigert ihren Wert immens. Auch wenn er noch ein paar andere Fähigkeiten besitzt, die ihm Geld verschaffen: Nach zwei Gläsern Rum kann er Janis Joplin imitieren, Glückskekse deuten und wie Christopher Kolumbus ein Hühnerei auf den Tisch stellen und beim Schwimmen den Toten Mann machen. Das Geschichtenerzählen aber entwickelt er zur Meisterschaft. Und die Sammlung seiner Zähne berühmter Menschen kann sich sehen lassen: von Plato zu Plutarch, Michel de Montaigne, Virginia Woolf und Enrique Vila-Matas. Sanchez aber will die von Marilyn Monroe ... Valeria Luiselli hat mit der Geschichte meiner Zähne ein Buch über den kreativen Prozess, den Wert von Kunst, den Kult um literarische Berühmtheiten geschrieben, eine herrliche Mixtur aus Erinnerung, Erfindung und autobiografischer Reflexion, in deren Zentrum ein Mann mit einem »Mund voller Horror« steht. Eine exzentrische, ganz und gar außergewöhnliche Geschichte, die die Konvention der literarischen Genres sprengt.
