Ein besonderes Buch zum 50jährigen Jubiläum des "Irischen Tagebuchs" von Heinrich Böll

Jahre nach Heinrich Böll begibt sich der deutsch-irische Schriftsteller Hugo Hamilton auf die Spuren des deutschen Nobelpreisträgers und bereist die Grüne Insel. Das Ergebnis ist einerseits eine raffinierte und kunstvolle Spiegelung des Böllschen Tagebuchs, die zeigt, wie vieles heute anders geworden und wie vieles sich dennoch gleichgeblieben ist. Und andererseits bietet der Blick des irischen Autors mit deutschen Wurzeln eine ganz besondere Perspektive, die mit ironischer Selbstkritik auf beide Seiten schaut und zu höchst vergnüglichen Erkenntnissen kommt.

Read information about the author

Ebook Die redselige Insel: Irisches Tagebuch read Online! Hugo Hamilton is an Irish writer.

Hamilton's mother was a German who travelled to Ireland in 1949 for a pilgrimage, married an Irishman, and settled in the country. His father was a militant nationalist who insisted that his children should speak only German or Irish, but not English, a prohibition the young Hugo resisted inwardly. "The prohibition against English made me see that language as a challenge. Even as a child I spoke to the walls in English and secretly rehearsed dialogue I heard outside," he wrote later.

As a consequence of this, he grew up with three languages - English, Irish and German - and a sense of never really belonging to any: "There were no other children like me, no ethnic groups that I could attach myself to".

Hamilton became a journalist, and then a writer of short stories and novels. His first three novels were set in Central Europe. Then came Headbanger (1996), a darkly comic crime novel set in Dublin and featuring detective Pat Coyne. A sequel, Sad Bastard, followed in 1998.

Following a year spent in Berlin on a cultural scholarship, he completed his memoir of childhood, The Speckled People (2003), which went on to achieve widespread international acclaim. Telling the story through the eyes of his childhood self, it painfully evoked the struggle to make sense of a bizarre adult world. It "triumphantly avoids the Angela's Ashes style of sentimental nostalgia and victim claims," wrote Hermione Lee in the The Guardian . "The cumulative effect is to elevate an act of scrupulous remembering into a work of art," commented James Lasdun in the New York Times. The story is picked up in the 2006 volume, The Sailor in the Wardrobe.

In May 2007, German publisher Luchterhand published Die redselige Insel (The Talkative Island), in which Hamilton retraced the journey Heinrich Böll made in Ireland that was to be the basis of his bestselling book Irisches Tagebuch (Irish Journal) in 1957. Hamilton's most recent novel, Disguise was published on June 6, 2008.

Hugo Hamilton lives in Dublin, Ireland.
