Bekenntnisse eines Hirnchirurgen Wie arbeitet ein Hirnchirurg? Wie fühlt es sich an, in das Organ zu schneiden, mit dem Menschen denken und träumen? Wie geht man damit um, wenn das Leben eines Patienten von der eigenen Heilkunst abhängt? Und wie, wenn man scheitert? Mehr noch als in anderen Bereichen der Medizin ist es in der Hirnchirurgie so gut wie unmöglich, nie einem Patienten zu schaden, denn Operationen am Innersten des Menschen sind immer mit unkalkulierbaren Risiken verbunden. Henry Marsh, einer der besten Neurochirurgen Großbritanniens, erzählt beeindruckend offen, selbstkritisch und humorvoll von den Ausnahmesituationen, die seinen Arbeitsalltag ausmachen. Seine Geschichten handeln vom Heilen und Helfen, vom Hoffen und Scheitern, von fatalen Fehlern und von der Schwierigkeit, die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen.

Seine Großeltern versuchten, mit Fleiß und Mobilität der Armut zu entkommen und sich in der Mitte der Gesellschaft zu etablieren. Doch letztlich war alles vergeblich. J. D. Vance erzählt die Geschichte seiner Familie — eine Geschichte vom Scheitern und von der Resignation einer ganzen Bevölkerungsschicht. Armut und Chaos, Hilflosigkeit und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: Genau in diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA — entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft, anfällig für populistische Parolen. Früher konnten sich die »Hillbillys«, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter, erhoffen, sich zu Wohlstand zu schuften. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien ihre Familien in eine Abwärtsspirale, in der sie bis heute stecken. Vance gelingt es wie keinem anderen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.
