Download E-books Neue Vahr Süd: Roman (Die Lehmann-Trilogie 2) (German Edition) PDF

By Sven Regener

Wir befinden uns im Jahre 1980 in der Neuen Vahr Süd, einem ganz und gar nicht pittoresken Neubauviertel im Osten von Bremen. Für Frank Lehmann, der gerade seine Lehre beendet hat, noch immer bei seinen Eltern wohnt und irgendwie vergessen hat, den Wehrdienst zu verweigern, wird es ein hartes halbes Jahr. Zwar gelingt ihm nach einem Streit der Auszug aus dem Elternhaus in eine chaotische Wohngemeinschaft, aber ein neues Zuhause hat er damit noch lange nicht gefunden, und die Neue Vahr Süd holt ihn immer wieder ein.

Und während Frank - noch immer rätselnd, wie es so weit kommen konnte - in der Kaserne strammstehen, Hemden auf Din A4 falten und durchs Gelände robben muss, streiten seine Freunde für ihre model der proletarischen Weltrevolution, gegen Militär und Aufrüstung und um die energische Sibille, ohne diese allerdings vorher nach ihrer Meinung gefragt zu haben.

Hin- und hergerissen zwischen Auflehnung und Resignation kämpft Frank Lehmann hart am Abgrund und mit allen erlaubten und unerlaubten Mitteln für eine eigene, würdige Existenz zwischen zwei widersprüchlichen Welten.

Sven Regener ist ein komischer und zugleich beklemmender Roman gelungen, der uns über den Aufbruch seines Helden in eine verwirrende Zukunft die frühen achtziger Jahre von einer Seite nahebringt, die wir erfolgreich verdrängt zu haben glaubten.
