Trauer ist das Ding mit Federn

Author: Max Porter

Eine junge Frau ist gestorben. Ihre Kinder, zwei kleine Jungen, und ihr Mann sind noch betäubt vom Schock, haben haufenweise Beileidsbekundungen und Lasagne zum Aufwärmen entgegengenommen, die notwendigen Dinge organisiert, und nun setzt die unerträgliche Leere ein. Da klingelt es an der Tür. Totenschwarz und gefiedert bricht es herein, packt den Vater und verkündet: "Ich gehe erst wieder, wenn du mich nicht mehr brauchst." Die überlebensgroße Krähe nistet sich rücksichtslos in der Familie ein, meldet sich mit drastischem Witz zu Wort und wird dabei zu einer Art subversivem Therapeuten, eine herrlich anarchische Mary Poppins. Max Porter ist ein bildmächtiges, wildes Buch über die Trauer gelungen.

Eins ist klar: Wer dieses Buch gelesen hat, schnappt sich ein Fernglas und geht in den nächsten Park, um Vögel zu beobachten. 115 Städte weltweit hat Urban Birder David Lindo besucht und erzählt erstaunliche und inspirierende Geschichten über die Vögel, die er auf seinen Trips erlebt hat. Auch in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz war er unterwegs, hat Experten vor Ort getroffen oder sich einfach durch den Großstadtdschungel treiben lassen. Denn Vögel beobachten kann man in der Stadt praktisch immer und überall. „Look up!“, lautet das einfache Motto des sympathischen Briten. So öffnet er unsere Augen für die Wildnis in den Städten und nimmt uns mit zu spannenden Abenteuern im urbanen Alltag.
