mytwostotinki/?p=363Let’s start with the title. Raw Material is a correct translation from the German word Rohstoff. But Stoff means in German not only material, it is also a slang word for illegal drugs (dope) such as heroin or in this case raw opium.The story of Jörg Fauser’s novel starts in Istanbul in the second half of the 1960s. The narrator – although it is a novel we may assume that the book is Fauser’s own life story – is living in the (then) run-down Cagaloglu district, a bi [...]

Asfalt boyunca ilerleyen bir çatlak vardı ve çatlakta bir ot bitmişti.Madem öyle,diye düşündüm,sen de ayağa kalkabilirsin.20'li yaşlarda herkesin muhakkak okuması gereken hatta dibe vurduğunu her hissettiğinde bir daha okumadı gereken vazgeçmeyenlerin kitabı.Okurken,ergenken elime tutuşturulan Cristin F'nin anıları kitabı da benimleydi.

Amazing macho classic. Highly enjoyable.

One of the few "true" authors of German counterculture, Jörg Fauser dissects Germany's cultural and revolutionary scene in this semi-biographical novel. The reader follows Fauser's alter ego Harry Gelb in fairly short chapters, as he starts off as a drug addict in the slums of Istanbul in his early 20s, forms an ambition to become a writer, but ultimately struggles with publishers, drug addicts, girlfriends and self-proclaimed revolutionaries in the wake of the 1968 struggles in Berlin and Fran [...]

Vital piece of outsider fiction from the 70's German counterculture. Fauser is great, deadpan, savage, a total nihilist equally bemused by the hippie posturings of the era as he was by the establishment. He is completely unsentimental about the communes, flaky revolutionaries, and political factions of post-60's Europe, the crappy jobs, opium, booze, dead-end jobs. I loved the bit where he meets William Burroughs 'I realised that William Burroughs was the reincarnation of Sherlock Holmes - a She [...]

Often these drink and drug fuelled memoirs can be sordid and depressing. Fauser, however, has crafted something quite light, almost breezy. Not through a lack of authenticity, but rather because this isn't a life falling apart, more one that never amounts to much, but does struggle on regardless. Gelb, our narrator, never feels sorry for himself, and comes over as good-natured and charming, resigned to whatever life deals him and almost indefatigable. As such, the prose speeds past, and we spend [...]

Life of an antihero in the roaring 60's and 70's Germany. Germany was on the one hand a booming economy, but on the other hand the people still suffered from the shame and aftermath of WW2. Our anihero tries to belong to a number of groups in the hope of collecting material to write his book. Drugs, women, alcohol, and the antihero himself are the big obstacles. Still, if one is able to get up after falling down, one should do so.

Ein wirklich großartiges Buch vom wohl "amerikanischsten" deutschen Autor aller Zeiten. Fauser beschreibt in vielen kleinen Episoden die verschiedensten sozialen Millieus der BRD während der 70er Jahre aus Sicht seines Protagonisten Harry Gelb. Drogen, Hausbesetzer, Untergrundpresse, RAF, Kneipentouren und wechselnde Lebensentwürfe. Auto biographisch und gnadenlos aber nie nihilistisch. Ein tolles Buch für alle die glauben Stuckrad-Barre wäre das Original ;-)

Wouldn't usually post a review on here, but this novel is so unknown that I feel compelled to spread the word. Simply find yourself a copy of Raw Material by whatever means necessary. You will thank me later. Fauser is a German mixture of Kerouac, Burroughs and Henry Miller. Jut wish someone would translate the rest of his works into English soon.

german underground literature from the 70s/80s, when germany was still called "bundesrepublik". maybe a bit too autobiographical and self-referential - writing a book about writing a book, but it has some really good moments, and had a big influence on a whole generation of contemporary german writers.

Jörg Fauser 'Grondstof'Een drugsroman zoals ze die vandaag niet meer makenFalen als junk, schrijver, revolutionair, student, anarchist en huisvader, en toch niet de indruk geven dat het leven is mislukt. Daar draait de semi-autobiografische roman ‘Grondstof’ van Jörg Fauser (1944 - 1987) om.Hoofdpersonage in het boek is Harry Gelb en kan beschouwd worden als het alter ego van Fauser, die als schrijver de wereld placht te veroveren. Gelb denkt het schrijverschap wel te kunnen combineren met [...]

Ich hatte von Fauser gehört, daß er den Schneemann geschrieben hat, und da ich immer nur eines mache, entweder Film sehen oder Buch lesen, kaufte ich mir den Schneemann und dann Rohstoff. Ich fand es keine leichte Kost, was mich aber nicht stört, sondern ich sehr positiv finde, denn ich tauche gerne in Bücher einoberflächliches Lesen finde ich nicht gut und möchte mich mit dem Buch auch nach dem Lesen auseinandersetzen. Allerdings- so skurril und klasse er das Miljöh auch beschreibt- ich, [...]

Dünyayı değiştireceğini düşündüğü Zero Zeitung adında bir derginin yayın yönetmenliğini yaptıktan sonra derginin çıktığı gün işsiz kalması, gayet sert bir kitap olan Stamboul Blues'un ilk okur buluşmasının limonata içen kilise gençliği komitesiyle olması gibi trajikomik ayrıntılarla bezeli olan romanda yazar olmayı kafasına koyan, kendi kendine uyuşturucuyu bırakan, mesai saatinde kitap okuyabildiği için bavul taşıma işine razı olan, her “daha dibe d [...]

De heersende klieken hadden de zaken nu voorgoed onder elkaar verdeeld -business voor rechts, cultuur voor links,De geschiedenis herhaalt zich niet en een leven kan lang worden als je alleen op nederlagen terugblikt.Van dichtbij zag dit plaveisel er interessant uit, er liep een scheur door het asfalt en in die scheur schoot zowaar een grasspriet op. Als dat zo is, dacht ik, kun jij ook wel opstaan.

Mehr Beat für Deutschland sei nötig, sprach Jörg Fauser und schrieb dreihundert Seiten über Drogen, Frauen, Saufen und Politik. Und die RAF. Und überhaupt ziemlich gut.

Ziemlich guter Rück- und Einblick in die BRD der 60er und 70er. Gut beobachtet, schön detailreich, nah am Abgrund aber nie selbstverliebt.
