È accaduto according to caso, così, come quasi sempre avviene in step with le cose speciali. l. a. sua storia s’intreccia con quella dei luoghi che abita: l. a. povertà dei vicoli fiorentini negli anni Venti tra case senza acqua né luce, le foglie di cicoria usate come rossetto, los angeles seconda guerra mondiale vista dagli Stati Uniti, il maccartismo americano, l’arrivo a Casablanca, l’esilio di Mohammed V dal Marocco, il protettorato francese e il risveglio dell’identità nazionale marocchina, fino all’indipendenza. Si journey, ci si commuove, si segue l’avvicendarsi degli eventi senza mai stancarsi, tutto d’un fiato, cadenzati da una costante autoironia, uno stile tagliente e teatrale e una meravigliosa gioia di vivere. A libro chiuso, rimane il desiderio di poter incontrare il sorriso di Valeria, anche solo in line with un istante. Anche solo in step with un tè alla menta”. (Roberta Yasmine Catalano)

Get DuMont Reiseabenteuer Blaue Dahlie, Schwarzes Gold: Eine PDF

By Daniel Metcalfe

Zwischen postkolonialem Blues und Ölboom In London lernt Daniel Metcalfe den angolanischen Dichter Rui kennen, aus dem weird and wonderful Geschichten über seine Heimat nur so heraussprudeln. Er karikiert die neue, märchenhaft reiche Elite, die Starlets und Präsidenten-Mätressen, Geschäftemacher und Ölmagnaten, die den Reichtum des Landes auf ihre Bankkonten lenken und die Skulpturen in ihren Villen Champagner pinkeln lassen. Die blumigen Namen der Bohrplattformen, von Orchidee bis Dahlie, können nicht verbergen: Das sprudelnde Öl nährt eine Welt anmaßender Exzesse. Neugierig geworden und trotz der Warnungen eines Reiseführers beschließt Metcalfe, als Rucksacktourist loszuziehen und jenseits der Baukräne von Luanda die alte Seele des Landes zu suchen: das Angola der gütigen Großväter, der guten Feste, des Kizomba-Tanzes und der kunstvollen Geistermasken. In Bussen und klapprigen Jeeps ist er unterwegs, er spricht mit Stammesältesten und Minenräumern, Straßenkindern und Ölarbeitern und erfährt eine Lebenswirklichkeit voller severe. Er findet die Narben der portugiesischen Kolonialgeschichte, des Sklavenhandels und des speedy drei Jahrzehnte dauernden angolanischen Bürgerkriegs. Seine Reise führt ihn direkt in einen explosiven Cocktail aus Korruption und Vetternwirtschaft, sprudelndem Ölgeld und schnellem Aufstieg der Neureichen, Elend und postkolonialem Blues.
