Language is integral to our social being. But what is the status of those who stand outside of language? The mentally disabled, “wild” children, people with autism and other neurological disorders, as well as animals, infants, angels, and artificial intelligences, have all engaged with language from a position at its borders. In the intricate verbal constructions of modern literature, the ‘disarticulate’—those at the edges of language—have, paradoxically, played essential, defining roles. Drawing on the disarticulate figures in modern fictional works such as Billy Budd, The Sound and the Fury, Nightwood, White Noise, and The Echo Maker, among others, James Berger shows in this intellectually bracing study how these characters mark sites at which aesthetic, philosophical, ethical, political, medical, and scientific discourses converge. It is also the place of the greatest ethical tension, as society confronts the needs and desires of “the least of its brothers.” Berger argues that the disarticulate is that which is unaccountable in the discourses of modernity and thus stands as an alternative to the prevailing social order. Using literary history and theory, as well as disability and trauma theory, he examines how these disarticulate figures reveal modernity’s anxieties in terms of how it constructs its others.

Deafening Modernism tells the story of modernism from the perspective of Deaf critical insight. Working to develop a critical Deaf theory independent of identity-based discourse, Rebecca Sanchez excavates the intersections between Deaf and modernist studies. She traces the ways that Deaf culture, history, linguistics, and literature provide a vital and largely untapped resource for understanding the history of American language politics and the impact that history has had on modernist aesthetic production. Discussing Deaf and disability studies in these unexpected contexts highlights the contributions the field can make to broader discussions of the intersections between images, bodies, and text. Drawing on a range of methodological approaches, including literary analysis and history, linguistics, ethics, and queer, cultural, and film studies, Sanchez sheds new light on texts by T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Charlie Chaplin, and many others. By approaching modernism through the perspective of Deaf and disability studies, Deafening Modernism reconceptualizes deafness as a critical modality enabling us to freshly engage topics we thought we knew.

Nach seinem Bestseller ›Der Klang der Zeit‹ erforscht Richard Powers, was Familien im Innersten zusammenhält: das zerbrechliche Geflecht aus Gefühl und Erinnerung. Die ergreifende Geschichte eines Geschwisterpaares und ein Panorama des heutigen Amerikas vereinen sich hier in seinem neuen großen Roman. Kearney ist die geographische Mitte der USA - und die Mitte von Nirgendwo. In einer Winternacht überschlägt sich Mark mit dem Auto. Als er wieder ins Leben zurückfindet, hält er seine Schwester Karin für eine feindliche Doppelgängerin. Sie hingegen versucht alles, um ihm ein normales Leben zu ermöglichen. Auf einer bewegenden Reise in das Innerste einer Familie macht uns Richard Powers mit dem größten Geschichtenerzähler bekannt: unserer Erinnerung. Sie schafft das Echo unseres Lebens, das uns trägt, umfängt und bisweilen grausam täuscht.

Ebenso einfühlsam wie schonungslos porträtiert der 30-jährige Amerikaner Adrian Tomine in "Sommerblond" die emotionale Zerrissenheit seiner Generation. In drei melancholischen Erzählungen gewährt er Einblicke in das zuweilen abwegige Streben seiner Protagonisten nach Zuwendung und Anerkennung. Tomine gelingt in eindringlichen, naturalistischen Bildern ein Comic, "lohnend wie ein guter zeitgenössischer Roman" (Nick Hornby).
