The Bedford Introduction to Literature is a best-seller for a reason: It brings literature to life for students, helping to make them lifelong readers and better writers. Classic works drawn from many periods and cultures appear alongside a strong showing from today’s notable authors. There is plenty of support for students, with a dozen chapters of critical reading and writing support, helpful sample close readings, writing assignments, and student papers. And, because everyone teaches and learns a little differently, there are lots of options for working with the literature, including case studies on individual works and themes that everyone can relate to. In-depth chapters on major authors like Flannery O’Connor and Emily Dickinson take students deeper into their work, and the new tenth edition features a chapter on the fiction of Dagoberto Gilb, created in collaboration with the author himself — one more way that the anthology showcases literature as a living, changing art form.

The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature is designed to bring literature to life — and to make students lifelong readers. As an instructor of literature and writing, editor Michael Meyer understands that a particular challenge in today’s classroom is that students may not see literature as relevant to their lives. They may have difficulty reading it critically and lack confidence in their writing skills. With these factors in mind, Meyer has put together a lively collection of literature drawn from many periods, cultures, and voices, with an excellent representation of contemporary authors, women authors, and authors of color. These works are presented with more than a dozen chapters of critical reading and writing support, and a generous helping of sample close readings, writing assignments, and student papers. And, because everyone teaches a little differently, the book offers more options for working with the literature than any comparable anthology — including in-depth chapters on major authors and case studies on individual works and universal themes.

In einer sehr nahen Zukunft — nächsten Dienstag, wer weiß? — steht ein reizüberflutetes, konsumversessenes, analphabetisches Amerika vor dem Zusammenbruch. Aber sage das niemand dem russischstämmigen Hausmeistersohn Lenny Abramov, stolzem Autor des vermutlich letzten Tagebuchs und weniger stolzem Besitzer einer kahlen Stelle auf dem Kopf. Obwohl er in einem Unternehmen arbeitet, das der reichen Klientel Unsterblichkeit verspricht, pirscht sich der Tod an diesen 39-jährigen Cholesterinhappen gemessenen Schritts heran. Warum auch nicht? Lenny ist aus einem anderen Jahrhundert — liebt Bücher, auch wenn viele seiner Freunde glauben, dass sie «stinken». Aber noch mehr als Bücher liebt er Eunice Park, eine unwahrscheinlich süße und unwahrscheinlich abgebrühte 24-jährige koreanischstämmige Frau, die im Hauptfach Images und im Nebenfach Selbstsicherheit studiert hat und ihm in Rom in die Arme läuft. Sofort zeigt sie ihm, wie man effektiver die Zähne putzt, geht mit ihm nicht entflammbare Baumwollkleidung kaufen. Amerika hingegen ist weniger flammenresistent als Lennys neue Ausstaffierung. Das Land steckt in einer Kreditkrise und ist bei den Chinesen hochverschuldet, Unruhen brechen im New Yorker Central Park aus, Panzer der Nationalgarde stehen an jeder Ecke. Unbeirrt will Lenny seine wankelmütige Geliebte davon überzeugen, dass es sich in einer Zeit ohne Normen und Stabilität, in einer Welt, in der man «Attraktivität» und «Nachhaltigkeit» seines Gegenübers per Mausklick abfragen kann, in einer Gesellschaft, in der die Betuchten womöglich ewig leben, die Armen hingegen zu früh sterben werden, trotzdem lohnt, ein Mensch zu sein. Diese superromantische, superkomische und auch supertraurige Liebesgeschichte vor dem Hintergrund einer Zivilisation am Abgrund ist eine Achterbahnfahrt durch ein Morgen, das schon heute deutlich sichtbar ist, inklusive sprachlicher Überschläge, eines steilkurvig dahinschießenden Plots und ganz ohne Phantasiebremse. Gary Shteyngart, in Amerika längst Kult- und Bestsellerautor, übertrifft mit dieser Gänsehaut-Satire alles, was die an exzentrischen Verrücktheiten reiche US-Literatur bisher hervorgebracht hat.
