    ”Romanens fremtid er lige her.” SALLY ROONEY Et mesterligt fortalt drama om fortrængte familiehemmeligheder, amerikansk identitet og sprogets magt. Topeka, Kansas, sidst i 1990erne. I centrum står high school-eleven Adam Gordon og hans forældre, psykologerne Jane og Jonathan. Jane er en berømt feministisk forfatter, og Jonathan er ekspert i at nå ind til problematiske teenagedrenge. Adam selv er en dygtig debattør og freestylerapper med et spirende poetisk talent. Herfra spindes tråde fremad og tilbage i tiden. Fra forældrenes opvækst og første møde til Adams liv som voksen familiefar i Brooklyn. Fra at begære sin næstes hustru til en fatal billardkugle i en kælder. TOPEKASKOLEN er en historie om en familie, om hvordan man opdrager en søn til at begå sig i en verden gennemsyret af giftig maskulinitet, og samtidig en forhistorie til vores samtid: den offentlige samtales sammenbrud, den nye højrebølge og den hvide mands identitetskrise. Ben Lerners roman er blevet hyldet af kritikerne og var blandt finalisterne til Pulitzerprisen 2020. ”En svimlende intelligent forfatter. Et godt sted at starte for alle, der ønsker at forstå nutidens USA bedre.” THE TIMES "Modig, vild og, ikke mindst, en kærlighedshandling.” OCEAN VUONG

    Den begavede og fuldstændig upålidelige unge amerikanske digter Adam Gordon er på stipendieophold i Madrid. Idéen er egentlig, at han skal forske, men han bruger i stedet det meste af sine vågne timer på at ryge hash og drive omkring i den spanske hovedstad. Han er en fremmed i byen og i sproget, men usikkerheden omkring hans egen identitet stikker dybere end som så og berør hele kernen i hans kunstneriske virke. Som dagene går, kommer Adams ”forskning” da også til at handle mere og mere om selve tilværelsen – og imens vokser hans mistanke om, at alle hans relationer, ja, hele hans liv, i virkeligheden er et lige så udspekuleret fupnummer, som den poesi, han skriver.Farvel til Atocha er en sjov og intelligent bog om kunstens og kunstnerens plads i vores senmoderne samfund.”En af USA’s bedste forfattere.” – JYLLANDS-POSTEN”Et værk så selvlysende originalt i stil og form, at det fremstår som et varsel, en komet fra fremtiden.” – THE GUARDIAN”Hylende morsom og knitrende intelligent, fuldt ud levende og original i hver eneste sætning.” – JONATHAN FRANZEN”Helt og aldeles charmerende.” – PAUL AUSTER

    A stunning, urgent, and original novel from Ben Lerner (The Topeka School and Leaving the Atocha Station) about making art, love, and children during the twilight of an empire.Winner of The Paris Review's 2012 Terry Southern Prize A Finalist for the 2014 Folio Prize and the NYPL Young Lions Fiction Award In the last year, the narrator of 10:04 has enjoyed unlikely literary success, has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal medical condition, and has been asked by his best friend to help her conceive a child. In a New York of increasingly frequent superstorms and social unrest, he must reckon with his own mortality and the prospect of fatherhood in a city that might soon be underwater. A writer whose work Jonathan Franzen has called "hilarious . . . cracklingly intelligent . . . and original in every sentence," Lerner captures what it's like to be alive now when the difficulty of imagining a future is changing our relationship to both the present and the past.
