-> Madame Bovary, Free text (French + English + German)

Translated from the French by Arthur Schurig.

"Madame Bovary ist wohl einer der bekanntesten Frauenromane überhaupt und hat eine Unzahl Nachfolger gefunden. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, das es sich um ein Erstlingsroman handelt.

Flaubert schrieb seit seiner Jugend unermüdlich. Dennoch dauerte es bis 1856, als endlich sein erstes gedrucktes Werk im Feuilleton der Revue de Paris erschien. Eben die 1851 begonnene Madame Bovary. Der Roman wurde zum Skandal und trug sowohl Flaubert wie auch der Zeitung einen Prozess wegen Verstoßes gegen die Sitten ein. Der Prozess endete mit Freispruch und trug wesentlich zum Verkaufserfolg der 1857 erscheinenden Buchversion bei.

"Trump, as extreme as he is, is less an aberration than a logical conclusion - a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century. A one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands...

Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? Naomi Klein, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and best-selling author, shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can make things better.

No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, how Trump's election was not a peaceful transition but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security.
