The Annotated Nose

An Annotated Edition of William Hundwasser's Cult Classic The Nose

Author: Marc Estrin

Publisher: Unbridled Books

Category: Fiction

Page: 480

View: 7888

A most unlikely life. “Marc Estrin” discovers that another writer’s novel — The Nose — not only has spawned a bizarre cult among the nation’s youth, but is based on the extraordinary life of a real person—an outcast named Alexei Pigov. “Estrin” searches Alexei out and asks him to provide annotations to The Nose. Alexei says that—although the events of the novel might, for the most part, be real—the purported reasons for them are all damnable lies. On the left-hand page of The Annotated Nose we read The Nose itself, and take in its beautifully unsettling illustrations. On the right-hand page we follow Alexei’s complaints – always surprising and often far-reaching. The layers in Estrin’s remarkable comic book are as multiple, eclectic, and outrageous as the sequence of masks Alexei wears to hide his face from the world over the caroming trajectory of his most unlikely life. The Annotated Nose is at once Marc Estrin’s most playful and his most ambitious work to date. A signed and numbered limited edition of 75 copies is also available.

Mit etwas Schokolade, Wanderschuhen und einem Gewehr macht sie sich daher auf den 3.232 Kilometer langen Weg an die Ostküste Kanadas. Ihr Mann Otto lässt sie ziehen - trotz aller Sorge. Er ist vor vielen Jahren selbst zu einer großen Reise aufgebrochen, die sein Leben verändert hat. Ihr gemeinsamer Freund Russell hingegen will Etta zurückholen und verlässt zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben die heimische Farm. Auf ihrer Wanderung trifft Etta James, der sie durch das staubtrockene Land begleitet. Je näher Etta der Küste Kanadas und dem sehnsuchtsvoll erwarteten Meer kommt, desto lebendiger werden die Erinnerungen - Erinnerungen an die gemeinsame Jugend mit Otto und Russell, an Zeiten des Krieges an Hoffnungen und versteckte Gefühle, aber auch an die zahlreichen Erfahrungen, die sie miteinander geteilt haben.
