Maria-Maria had broken away from her domineering mother long before her physical death, or at least she thought she had. Neither mother's cruel lashings nor her cutting criticism had prevented her from rejecting the values and ideals that her authoritarian and Communist party-line- towing parents held so dearly. To their crushing dismay, she would not deploy her artistic talents toward embodying the Ceaucescian model of the "new human." Quite the contrary, she was going to revel in being imperfect, and embark on a journey of self-exploration in order to discover what it means to be a self that is not defined by being her mother's daughter or a mother to her own daughter. Putting everything at stake to detach from the primal bond that both oppresses and eludes her, Maria-Maria opens herself up to, and achieves, the unexpected. Banciu explores an uncompromising struggle for selfhood in a singular voice that is vulnerable and authentic, emotional, and unsparingly honest. Beyond a literary study of the complex dynamics that inextricably bind and repel mothers and daughters, Banciu's Mother's Day - Song of a Sad Mother is a courageous reflection on what it means to become and accept one's self with all of the renunciations and rewards that this fraught journey entails.

Grossstadtrhythmus den Rucken, um in der Abgeschiedenheit eines griechischen Bergdorfes Kraft zu schopfen und wieder zu sich zu kommen. Die erste Zeit verbringt sie schweigend auf der Terrasse. Einer Terrasse am Hang, mit Blick uber die Weite des Meeres. Sie lebt umgeben von Insekten und anderen Tieren, die zu ihren Freunden werden. Sie nimmt sich Zeit, Veranderungen des Lichts, Verwandlungen des Meeres, Verborgenes sowie das Nichtoff ensichtliche ihrer Umgebung und das Leuchten des Unscheinbaren wahrzunehmen. Erst nach Tagen verspurt sie den Wunsch, wieder Menschen zu treffen und begibt sich auf Reisen ausserhalb des Kosmos ihrer Terrasse. Per Anhalter fahrt sie jeden Tag in den Ort am Meer. Kurze Begegnungen unterwegs, das Beobachten der Menschen am Strand und die Betrachtung des Naturschauspiels off enbaren ihr die Verbundenheit aller Wesen untereinander in der Natur. Parallel zu den menschlichen Begegnungen spielen sich im Mikrokosmos der Insekten, Kafer und kleinen Tiere Dramen ab, wie Szenen aus der griechischen Mythologie. In diesem Buch geht es um das filigrane Erzahlen der kleinen Welt, in der sich die grosse widerspiegelt. The narrator turns her back on Berlin and the hectic throb of the big city for a summer, in order to recharge and reconnect with herself in the seclusion of a Greek mountain village. For the first little while she passes the time silently on a terrace. A terrace on the hillside, looking out over the great expanse of the ocean. She lives surrounded by insects and other animals that eventually become her friends. She takes time to experience changes in light and transformations of the sea, to take notice of the hidden and inconspicuous things in her environment, the glimmer of what lies concealed. It is only after some days have passed that she is struck by the desire to meet people again, and starts to embark on journeys beyond the cosmos of her terrace. She hitchhikes to the town by the sea each day. Brief encounters along the way, people-watching on the beach, and observations of nature's own spectacle as it unfolds reveal to her the interrelation of all living beings in nature. Coinciding with the human interactions, dramas play out in the microcosm of insects, beetles, and small animals-like scenes from Greek mythology. This book is all about the detailed narration of the small world reflected in the larger one."

Er stieg hoch, fiel tief und stand wieder auf, um zu einem weiteren Höhenflug anzusetzen: Johnny Cash, 1932-2003, war und ist eine Ikone, weit über die Countrymusikszene, in der er sich bewegte, hinaus. Legendär waren seine Konzerte in den Gefängnissen Folsom und San Quentin Ende der 60er-Jahre. Besonders aber mit seinen letzten vier Alben, den "American Recordings", fand er weltweit große Anerkennung. Cash, der den Beinamen "Man in Black" trug, hat in seiner Karriere etwa 500 Songs geschrieben, mehr als 53 Millionen Tonträger verkauft und wurde mit 13 Grammy Awards ausgezeichnet. Spätestens seit dem Kinofilm "Walk the Line" von 2006 ist er im allgemeinen Bewusstsein als Musik-Ikone verankert.
