Beschreibung

A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

Benjamin Alire Sáenz is an American Book Award–winning author of poetry and prose for adults and teens. His first novel for teens, Sammy and Juliana in Hollywood, was an ALA Top Ten Book for Young Adults and a finalist for the Los Angels Times Book Prize. His second book for teens, He Forgot to Say Goodbye, won the Tomas Rivera Mexican American Children’s Book Award, the Southwest Books Award, and was named a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. He teaches creative writing at the University of Texas, El Paso.

An honest & touching story about two boys who couldn't be more different from one another but still form an unlikely bond. To say that I enjoyed reading this book would be a complete understatement. I've read it five times and probably gonna pick it up for a sixth time.

A wonderful, poetic friendship between two mexican boys in the middle of puberty.

Until he meet Dante. A poetic boy that has an entirely different view on life than Ari does, but somehow the get along great. At least for the most part. They go through a lot of difficult situations - some alone, some together, while growing a long friendship and perhaps even more. This book is a perfectly written story about family, friendship, forgiveness and what it means to grow up as a queer person in the late 80s.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe ist ein wunderbarer Jugendroman, in dem viele verschiedene Themen behandelt werden. Es geht um die eigene Identität und die eigene Herkunft. Es geht um männliche Geschlechterrollen und Sexualität, um Freundschaft und um Liebe. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Freundschaft zwischen Ari und Dantes, deren Dynamik und eben das Erwachsenwerden. Sáenz Arbeiten konzentrieren sich meist auf die Grenze von El Paso und Juárez. Deswegen verwundert es nicht, dass in seinen Romanen die mexikanisch-amerikanische Identität immer eine große Rolle spielt. Mit diesem Roman hat Sáenz den Stonewall Book Award 2013 gewonnen und reiht sich somit in die illustre Gesellschaft von Michael Cunningham, Colm Tóibín und Alan Hollinghurst ein, um nur ein paar der vielen großartigen Schriftsteller zu nennen. Auf Deutsch ist der Roman mit dem Titel - Aristoteles und Dante entdecken die Geheimnisse des Universums - erschienen. Schenkt man Gerüchten im Internet Glauben, dann hat er an einer Fortsetzung von „Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe“, dass in 21 Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach ausgezeichnet wurde, gearbeitet. Mich würde es freuen mehr von Ari und Dante zu lesen.

    ONE SUMMER NIGHT I FELL ASLEEP, HOPING THE WORLD would be different when I woke. In the morning, when I opened my eyes, the world was the same. I threw off the sheets and lay there as the heat poured in through my open window.

    My hand reached for the dial on the radio. “Alone” was playing. Crap, “Alone,” a song by a group called Heart. Not my favorite song. Not my favorite group. Not my favorite topic. “You don’t know how long . . .”

    I was fifteen.

    I was bored.

    I was miserable.

    As far as I was concerned, the sun could have melted the blue right off the sky. Then the sky could be as miserable as I was.

    The DJ was saying annoying, obvious things like, “It’s summer! It’s hot out there!” And then he put on that retro Lone Ranger tune, something he liked to play every morning because he thought it was a hip way to wake up the world. “Hi-yo, Silver!” Who hired this guy? He was killing me. I think that as we listened to the William Tell Overture, we were supposed to be imagining the Lone Ranger and Tonto riding their horses through the desert. Maybe someone should have told that guy that we all weren’t ten-year-olds anymore. “Hi-yo, Silver!” Crap. The DJ’s voice was on the airwaves again: “Wake up, El Paso! It’s Monday, June fifteenth, 1987! 1987! Can you believe it? And a big ‘Happy Birthday’ goes out to Waylon Jennings, who’s fifty years old today!” Waylon Jennings? This was a rock station, dammit! But then he said something that hinted at the fact that he might have a brain. He told the story about how Waylon Jennings had survived the 1959 plane crash that killed Buddy Holly and Richie Valens. On that note, he put on the remake of “La Bamba” by Los Lobos.

    “La Bamba.” I could cope with that.

    I tapped my bare feet on the wood floor. As I nodded my head to the beat, I started wondering what had gone through Richie Valens’s head before the plane crashed into the unforgiving ground. Hey, Buddy! The music’s over.

    For the music to be over so soon. For the music to be over when it had just begun. That was really sad.
