Description
Fat City is a vivid novel of allegiance and defeat, of the potent promise of the good life and the desperation and drink that waylay those whom it eludes. Stockton, California is the setting: the Lido Gym, the Hotel Coma, Main Street lunchrooms and dingy bars, days like long twilights in houses obscured by untrimmed shrubs and black walnut trees. When two men meet in the ring -- the retired boxer Billy Tully and the newcomer Ernie Munger - their brief bout sets into motion their hidden fates, initiating young Ernie into the company of men and luring Tully back into training. In a dispassionate and composed voice, Gardner narrates their swings of fortune, and the plodding optimism of their manager Ruben Luna, as he watches the most promising boys one by one succumb to some undefined weakness; still, "There was always someone who wanted to fight."

I ask a young 200-kilo patient what he snacks on. “Nothing,” he says. I look him in the eye. Nothing? He nods. I ask him about his chronic skin infections, his diabetes. He tears up: “I eat hot chips and fried dim sims and drink three bottles of Coke every afternoon. The truth is I’m addicted to eating. I’m addicted.” He punches his thigh. In Fat City, Karen Hitchcock unpicks the idea of obesity as a disease. In a riveting blend of story and analysis, she explores chemistry, psychology and the impulse to excess to explain the West’s growing obesity epidemic.

The modern struggle against fat cuts deeply and pervasively into American culture. Dieting, weight consciousness, and widespread hostility toward obesity form one of the fundamental themes of modern life. Fat History explores the meaning of fat in contemporary Western society and illustrates how progressive changes, such as growth in consumer culture, increasing equality for women, and the refocusing of women's sexual and maternal roles have influenced today's obsession with fat. Brought up-to-date with a new preface and filled with narrative anecdotes, Fat History explores fat's transformation from a symbol of health and well-being to a sign of moral, psychological, and physical disorder.

»Fat City hat mich mehr bewegt als die gesamte Gegenwartsliteratur der letzten Jahre.« Joan Didion Stockton, Kalifornien, 50er Jahre. Im Lido-Box-Gym treffen Ernie Munger und Billy Tully aufeinander. Ernie steht am Anfang seiner Karriere, ist voller Hoffnungen. Billy ist am Ende, will es noch einmal wissen. Ihr Trainer, Ruben Luna, hat schon alles gesehen, er weiß, dass es im Boxen kaum etwas zu holen gibt. Zwischen verlausten Hotelbetten und Pfirsichernte, zwischen Boxring und dunklen Bars, der großen Liebe und der leidlichen Bettgesellschaft, zwischen Hoffnung und Verzweiflung beginnt und vergeht das Leben von Ernie, Billy und Ruben. »Fat City« zählt zu den großen Klassikern der amerikanischen Literatur, der Roman ist das Gegenstück zu Rocky und Co. Keine Heldengeschichte, sondern eine Verbeugung vor dem letzten Willen, der erst erwacht, wenn alle Hoffnung unter den Tisch getrunken ist. Eine Liebeserklärung an eine Zeit, in der man von der Hand in den Mund lebte, aus eigener Kraft alles erreichen und alles zerstören konnte. Gregor Hens gelingt es mit seiner Neuübersetzung meisterhaft, dem einzigartigen Californian-Working-Class-Sound, dem trotzigen Humor und der feinen Melancholie eine deutsche Stimme zu verleihen. »Laufen, kämpfen, lieben, Unkraut jäten oder Obsternte – die Protagonisten des Romans halten niemals inne, nur um nicht von ihrem Verhängnis eingeholt zu werden. Gardner erzählt das so überzeugend, dass wir uns nur an ihre Taten erinnern, nicht an ihre Niederlagen.« The New York Review of Books
