Mit achtzehn ging ich für ein Jahr nach Amerika Noch heute erzähle ich oft dass es ein Basketballstipendium war aber das stimmt nicht Meine Großeltern haben den Austausch bezahlt So beginnt der erste Roman von Joachim Meyerhoff der seinen Ich Erzähler aus der norddeutschen Provinz in die Weiten des amerikanischen Westens führt und in ein Wechselbad der Gefühle Entscheidend ist der selbstironische empfindsame pointier.

    Man this was such a formulaic male coming of age story in a way And there is some mildly weird to unusual stuff in there Convicted murderers a mental institution a dead brother But at times I still felt like I head read this story uite a few times before and now seven months later it is all a muddled mess As someone who has spend substantial time in Germany and the US I also felt his observations about the American psyche weren't exactly as
