Dinge, die ich vom Nachtfernsehen gelernt habe

Dinge, die ich vom Nachtfernsehen gelernt habe

Eine wundersame Reise durch die eigentümliche Welt des Nachtfernsehens. Fünfzig Farbfotografien fassen zusammen, was uns das Nachtfernsehen gelehrt hat, z.B. in einem unheimlichen, dunklen Haus niemals das Licht einzuschalten, sich zu Hause sofort nackt auszuziehen, oder dass Geister wirklich existieren. Elf Textbeiträge durchleuchten das Phänomen Nachtfernsehen von diversen Gesichtspunkten, vom Erlebnisbericht bis hin zum kulturkritischen Aufsatz. Den Abschluss bildet eine Mitschrift von eineinhalb Stunden Zappen durch neunundsiebzig Fernsehkanäle und den dabei gefundenen Merkwürdigkeiten. Weitere Informationen...

The Happiest Guy in the World and Other Stories About Sex and Pain

The Happiest Guy in the World and Other Stories About Sex and Pain

Nine short stories about sex and pain, two things that are more closely interconnected that some would like to think: A man and his girlfriend looking at the moon; a fetishist trying to find true love at a speed dating event; a woman in shock posing as a private investigator; a girl abducted by enemy soldiers; a painter struggling to not finish her paintings; a master interrogator meeting his match; a man under the influence of pheromones; a mafia killer who has the tables turned on him at a game of Russian roulette; a man observing people from his table at a café. All of them are in search of some sort of happiness, some achieving it, some not. English language.
