By Daniel Kehlmann

Es ist der Sommer vor der Wirtschaftskrise. Martin Friedland, katholischer Priester ohne Glauben, übergewichtig, weil immer hungrig, trifft sich mit seinem Halbbruder Eric zum Essen. Der hochverschuldete, mit einem Bein im Gefängnis stehende Finanzberater hat unheimliche Visionen, teilt davon jedoch keinem etwas mit. Schattenhafte Männer, sogar zwei Kinder warnen ihn vor etwas, nur: Gelten diese Warnungen wirklich ihm, oder ist etwa sein Zwillingsbruder Iwan gemeint, der Kunstkenner und Ästhet, der ihm zum Verwechseln ähnlich sieht? Schon nimmt das Unheil seinen Lauf. Daniel Kehlmann erzählt von drei Brüdern, die – jeder auf seine Weise – Betrüger, Heuchler, Fälscher sind. Sie haben sich eingerichtet in ihrem Leben, doch plötzlich klafft ein Abgrund auf. Ein Augenblick der Unaufmerksamkeit, ein Zufall, ein falscher Schritt, und used to be gespenstischer Albtraum schien, wird wahr. Ein Roman über Lüge und Wahrheit, über Familie, Fälschung und die Kraft der Fiktion: ein virtuoses Kunstwerk – vielschichtig, geheimnisvoll und kühn.

Iba a saltar sobre esta condenada potranca sábelotodo, que se permitía relinchar contra la Biblia Americana, para acabar allí con sus provocaciones. Tuvo que supercontrolarse para no dar rienda suelta a estos impulsos que una de las mejores tradiciones americanas imputaba a los espíritus animales. En cambio cogió, impensadamente, uno de los frutos que le ofrecía la serpiente, significando con este gesto bíblico que cedería a la invencible concupiscencia en cualquier momento, obsedido por la necesidad de escapar al relati­ vismo ambiente, aun a riesgo de remontarse a los orígenes de toda ciencia.

Juana reprimió un nuevo gesto de desagrado al percibir, tan de cerca, el temblor de ese pequeño esqueleto lleno de rencor y de furia impotente. Había observado ya cómo la fealdad natural de estos aborígenes parecía acentuarse no bien se reunían, aunque fuera en grupos pequeños, particularmente cuando lo hacían obedeciendo a una comunidad de intereses. Pero ahora le pareció que esa fealdad, encuadrada aun en el marco de la legalidad burguesa pero excitada ya por la impotencia del mismo para contenerla, lo rebalsaba, confundiéndose allí, en el templo mismo de la justicia, con la amenazante promesa de una profanación.

Y bien, mi querido superhéroe. ¿Se encuentra usted a gusto entre nosotros? 28 La pregunta concreta se escudaba en un elevado plano de generalización. Batman prefirió restituirla a su más am­ plio contexto, mientras, inconscientemente, se sacaba sus guantes atiburonados, arrojándolos al pie de la cama. —Usted lo sabe muy bien, señorita Sommers. Sus amigos no me ayudan a que los ayude en la forma deseada. — ¿Deseada por quién? —preguntó ella a quemarropa. Pero las dudas de Batman no afectaban para nada a sus principios.
