The Apartment, the astonishing first novel by Greg Baxter, is a tale of war and peace, friendship and aloneness. A man walks across an old European capital. Heavy snow falls. He has come here from far away, hoping to forget. Instead, he remembers: home, war, lost friends. Complicity. In the company of a new friend and alive to the new experiences of the city, he moves through the snow and his complicated history in search of an apartment. The Apartment, by the author of the acclaimed memoir A Preparation for Death, is a novel about war, the relationship between America and the rest of the world, and the brittle foundations of Western culture; but above all it is a book about the mysteries and alchemies of friendship - truthful, moving and brilliant. Acclaimed by Hisham Matar, Adam Thorpe and Roddy Doyle, among others, The Apartment is a deeply original and profoundly involving novel. 'Admirable for its scope, ambition and unashamed seriousness of purpose, as well as its willingness to take stylistic and structural risks' Julie Myerson, Observer 'Stunningly good' Susan Jeffreys, Saturday Review, BBC Radio Four 'Baxter's superbly elegant, understated writing explores the dynamics of America's relationship with the rest of the world' The Times 'Lucidly written and astutely observed ... The novel exerts a hypnotic force ... Baxter continually undercuts our expectations for his novel. And it is precisely this sort of subversion, along with the author's shimmering prose, that makes The Apartment such a surprisingly compelling read' New York Times 'Absorbing, atmospheric and enigmatic ... Its long, frigid journey into a long, sleepless night explores a man's uneasy relationship with his past, himself and a world in which violence is inescapable' Los Angeles Times 'Powerful ... Baxter's clean and direct prose generates its own momentum' Daily Beast 'A wonderful, horrible, wise novel' Dazed & Confused (Book of the Month) 'A dark and sinewy novel, written with sparse clarity and affecting subtlety' Stuart Evers, Observer (Books of the Year) Greg Baxter was born in Texas in 1974. He lived for a number of years in Dublin, and now lives in Berlin. He is the author of the acclaimed memoir A Preparation for Death. The Apartment is his first novel.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Kunst - Kunstgeschichte, Note: 2,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit dem Film THE APARTMENT ( Billy Wilder, USA 1960 ) ist dem Regisseur Billy Wilder zusammen mit seinem Co-Drehbuchautor I.A.L Diamond ein cineastischer Klassiker in Schwarz-Weiss gelungen, welcher auch heutzutage nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt hat. Wilder hält in diesem Film der pseudo-moralischen Gesellschaft einen satirischen und kritischen Spiegel vor, deren vorherrschende Oberflächlichkeit er präzise durchschaut; den amerikanischen Traum geschickt zu dekonstruieren versteht und am Ende der hemmungslosen Niederlage preisgibt. Wie Wilder dabei die einzelnen Handlungsstränge miteinander zu einem melancholischen und raffiniertem Gesamtkunstwerk kombiniert, ist ebenso meisterhaft wie ergreifend. Dabei bewegt sich Wilder als Regisseur und Drehbuchautor mit seinem Film stets auf dem sehr schwierigen Terrain, weil das Genre der Tragikomödie das vielleicht mit Abstand schwierigster aller Filmkonzepte darstellt. Dessen Kunst besteht in der zarten Balance und dem Miteinander beider gegensätzlicher Gattungen. Hier aber, in diesem Meisterwerk, ist Billy Wilder die perfekte Mischung gelungen, und THE APARTMENT ist heute immer noch eines der besten Beispiele für eine Tragikomödie. Die vorliegende Hausarbeit wird sich nun der narrativen Ebene des Films befassen; der literarische Aufsatz von Jacques Aumont soll dabei die Grundlage der Untersuchungen sein. Dabei soll der erste Schritt dazu dienen, den Leser anhand des Plots zunächst einmal mit der eigentlichen Handlung des Films vertraut zu machen. Im zweiten Schritt geht es dann um die eigentliche filmische Analyse, in der der Fokus vor allem auf eine wichtige Szenen gelegt wird, die dem Autor dieser Hausarbeit für den narrativen Verlauf als besonders und bedeutsam erscheint. Der Schlussteil widmet sich der Auswertung der erzielten Ergebnisse und wird gleichzeitig einen Ausblick und Vorschläge auf weitere mögliche Themen-Analysen geben.
