The novel is alive and well, thank you very much For the last fifteen years, whenever a novel was published, John Freeman was there to greet it. As a critic for more than two hundred newspapers worldwide, the onetime president of the National Book Critics Circle, and the former editor of Granta, he has reviewed thousands of books and interviewed scores of writers. In How to Read a Novelist, which pulls together his very best profiles (many of them new or completely rewritten for this volume) of the very best novelists of our time, he shares with us what he's learned. From such international stars as Doris Lessing, Haruki Murakami, Salman Rushdie, and Mo Yan, to established American lions such as Don DeLillo, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison, Marilynne Robinson, Philip Roth, John Updike, and David Foster Wallace, to the new guard of Edwidge Danticat, Dave Eggers, Jonathan Franzen, and more, Freeman has talked to everyone. What emerges is an instructive and illuminating, definitive yet still idiosyncratic guide to a diverse and lively literary culture: a vision of the novel as a varied yet vital contemporary form, a portrait of the novelist as a unique and profound figure in our fragmenting global culture, and a book that will be essential reading for every aspiring writer and engaged reader—a perfect companion (or gift!) for anyone who's ever curled up with a novel and wanted to know a bit more about the person who made it possible.

Dein Ego ist dein Feind

So besiegst du deinen größten Gegner

Viele Menschen glauben, dass die Gründe, die sie daran hindern, erfolgreich zu sein, in ihrer Umwelt zu finden sind. Aber in Wirklichkeit steckt der größte Feind in jedem von uns selbst: unser Ego. Es macht uns blind für unsere Fehler, verhindert, dass wir aus ihnen lernen, und hemmt unsere Entwicklung. Denn gerade in Zeiten, in denen die schamlose Selbstdarstellung in sozialen Netzwerken oder im Reality-TV eine Selbstverständlichkeit ist, liegt die wahre Herausforderung in der Idee, weniger Zeit in das Erzählen der eigenen Größe zu stecken und stattdessen die wirklich wichtigen Missionen des Lebens zu meistern. Mit einer Fülle an Beispielen aus Literatur, Philosophie und Geschichte zeigt Ryan Holiday eindrucksvoll und praxisnah, wie die Überwindung des eigenen Egos zum unnachahmlichen Erfolg verhilft. Bewaffnet mit den Erkenntnissen aus diesem Buch kann sich jeder seinem größten Feind stellen – dem eigenen Ego.
