Nils ist eine Null. Menschlich, musikalisch, fiskalisch. Moralisch vollkommen unbelastet lässt er keine Gelegenheit aus, seine Durchschnittlichkeit zu kultivieren. Man muss nur Popstar werden - alles andere regelt sich dann von selbst. Diesem irren Lebensprinzip folgend wartet er auf seine Chance - auch wenn er sich dabei zunehmend isoliert. Eines Tages - die zwischenzeitliche Karriere als Pizzafahrer steht kurz vor dem Ende - brettert ihm ein berühmter Musikproduzent in den Wagen. Nils sieht seine Zeit gekommen und hinterlässt eine kilometerlange Schleimspur bis ins Studio des einflussreichen Produzenten. Für eine im Internet geklaute Nummer erhält er einen Plattenvertrag. Was dann folgt, ist ein dekadenter Höllentrip zwischen feuchten Teenager-Höschen und der alles verheizenden Medienmaschine. Nils ist ganz oben - bis der geklaute Song als Original von Neuseeland aus weltweit die Charts stürmt... Ein urkomisches und unterhaltsames Buch für alle, die gerne lachen! Hinter dem Pseudonym NoWo verbirgt sich der deutsche Musiker, Autor und Produzent Nobert Woike. Norbert Woike wurde 1953 im Ruhrgebiet geboren, wo er bis heute lebt und arbeitet. ´´Gimme da life´´ erschien 2012 und ist sein bisher einziger Roman. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Florian Müller.

Hail Gin´s taxi and take a seat for the ride of your life! When we first meet Jindriska/Gin, she is a New York cabbie, a struggling Czech immigrant alternately buoyed-up or battered by life in the guts of the great city. Though married to Talibe, a legal immigrant from West Africa, she lives with Gloria, a Cuban lesbian artist and tiny Josito, the baby of Gloria´s jailed friend. Through Alex, the Russian owner of the garage on 47th Street, Gin rents a succession of yellow taxis of dubious reliability and origin. Thus she meets a collection of characters: hookers, Lotharios, fraudsters, friends, lovers, hangers-on, and an architect who once dreamed of changing the skyline of Manhattan. ´´The gravity of big cities captures us,´´ writes Pekarkova, ´´and when people let themselves be lured... their inevitable butt-falls can be made gentler only by their love for the City; for the unique and thorny planet.´´ Yet despite Gin´s philosophical musings, it´s all about the money: Everybody needs it. Gin drives at all hours through the canyons of skyscrapers, along night streets that glisten with slithering rainbows of motor oil and rainwater, seeking fares, trying to save enough cash to pay the rent and to survive. Pekarkova´s eye for telling detail, her ironic humor, and her deft ear for dialogue helps to create a powerful tale with plenty of laughs, one that is rich in incident and comes in time to a shattering climax. 1.
