For more than a hundred years, nothing has changed at Thistlethwaite, a gloomy old mansion in rural northwest England that shelters a society of poets and scholars with lots of money at their disposal, but little common sense. Then a mysterious stranger, a poet from Java who has won a fellowship from the society, arrives in their midst. Noor brings with him healing potions, a magic kris, and a bawdy ancient epic fascinating glimpses of a world utterly unknown to the innocent inhabitants of Thistlethwaite. One by one they fall under Noors spell, especially Tildy, the societys 60-year-old director who thought she had learned to live without love. When a scandal threatens to shut down Thistlethwaite forever, Noor comes to the rescue, leading a merry chase that careers from a ruined castle in the wilds of England to the luxurious watering holes of Singapore to a chaotic household in Jogjakarta. Acerbic, often hilarious satire in the tradition of Evelyn Waugh and Jonathan Franzen, The Java Man tells the story of Noor, a picaresque Indonesian poet who comes to England on a fellowship, where he wreaks emotional havoc among the inhabitants of a secluded country village. The book is set in present-day England, Singapore, and Indonesia. The Java Man, Jamie James' second novel, is a witty, entertaining, deeply compassionate study of miscommunication across the cultural divide, the dangerous limitations of book learning, and the healing power of love. paperback, Label: Metafor, Metafor, Produktgruppe: Book, Publiziert: 2004, Studio: Metafor, Verkaufsrang: 15253099.
