Expensive People

Joyce Carol Oates´s Wonderland Quartet comprises four remarkable novels that explore social class in America and the inner lives of young Americans. In Expensive People, Oates takes a provocative and suspenseful look at the roiling secrets of America´s affluent suburbs. Set in the late 1960s, this first-person confession is narrated by Richard Everett, a precocious and obese boy who sees himself as a minor character in the alarming drama unfolding around him. Fascinated by yet alienated from his attractive, self-absorbed parents and the privileged world they inhabit, Richard incisively analyzes his own mismanaged childhood, his pretentious private schooling, his ´´successful-executive? father, and his elusive mother. In an act of defiance and desperation, eleven-year-old Richard strikes out in a way that presages the violence of ever-younger Americans in the turbulent decades to come. A National Book Award finalist, Expensive People is a stunning combination of social satire and gothic horror. ´´You cannot put this novel away after you have opened it,? said The Detroit News. ´´This is that kind of book-hypnotic, fascinating, and electrifying.? Expensive People is the second novel in the Wonderland Quartet. The books that complete this acclaimed series, A Garden of Earthly Delights, them, and Wonderland, are also available from the Modern Library.

The Danes are the happiest people in the world, and pay the highest taxes.´Neutral´ Sweden is one of the biggest arms manufacturers in the world. Finns have the largest per capita gun ownership after the US and Yemen. 54 per cent of Icelanders believe in elves. Norway is the richest country on earth. 5 per cent of Danish men have had sex with an animal. Michael Booth has lived among the Scandinavians, on and off, for over ten years, perplexed by their many strange paradoxes and character traits and equally bemused by the unquestioning enthusiasm for all things Nordic and hygge that has engulfed the rest of the world. He leaves his adopted home of Denmark and embarks on a journey through all five of the Nordic countries to discover who these curious tribes are, the secrets of their success and, most intriguing of all, what they think of each other. Along the way a more nuanced, often darker picture emerges of a region plagued by taboos, characterised by suffocating parochialism and populated by extremists of various shades.´The next Bill Bryson.´ New York Times Winner of the Best Narrative Travel Book Award from the British Guild of Travel Writers

´´Profit Over People´´ - so bezeichnet Noam Chomsky den Neoliberalismus, der den Profit über alles Menschliche stellt. Scharfsichtig kritisiert er die Logik des freien Marktes und plädiert für demokratischere Alternativen. ´´War Against People´´ ist eine Abrechnung mit den westlichen Staaten - denn sie sind die wahren Schurkenstaaten und nicht die Diktaturen der sogenannten Entwicklungsländer. Die Machtpolitik der USA missachtet die Menschenrechte und missbraucht diese zur Legitimation ihrer Gewaltanwendung.
