»Judenlümmel« (in der amerikanischen Originalfassung »Jew Boy«) ist die Geschichte eines Jungen, der in den Fünfzigerjahren als Sohn einer Holocaust-Überlebenden in der Bronx aufwächst und alles versucht, seiner Mutter und ihren Opfergeschichten aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zu entkommen. Er flüchtet aus dem familiären Wahnsinn, aber er kann den Dämonen seiner Kindheit nicht entfliehen. Seine Odyssee bringt ihn in den Westen der USA, in einen Kibbuz in Israel, dann als Kämpfer in die Israelische Armee und schließlich kehrt er schwer alkoholsüchtig in die Staaten zurück, wo er sich als Obdachloser in den Straßen von New York, rund um den Tompkins Square, wiederfindet. Die Rettung für ihn ist am Ende die Literatur. Alan Kaufman bezieht seine große literarische Kraft aus einer Fülle von Erlebniswelten, die nicht alltäglich sind. Er schreibt hart, direkt und ohne Schnörkel, aber auch mit einem bitteren, jüdischen Humor.

Begabte Autoren aus jenen Bevölkerungsschichten (Afro-Amerikaner, Obdachlose, Latinos, Juden, Asiaten, arbeitslose Weiße), die von der Härte der Bush/Reagan Ära vor allem betroffen wurden, artikulierten sich mit politisch engagierten Texten. In Lesungen und Auftritten im ganzen Land, in Underround-Auditorien wie dem Wordland in San Francisco, Green Mill Tavern in Chicago oder dem Nuyorican Poets Cafe in der Lower East Side berichtete diese neue Dichtergeneration von der Brutalität und Härte des Überlebenskampfes im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten. Ihre Botschaften wurden zum inoffiziellen Nachrichtendienst, zum CNN des Undergrounds, wie Alan Kaufman es einmal bezeichnete.

Bisher veröffentlichte Alan Kaufman drei Romane („matches“, „Jew Boy“ und „drunken angel“) publizierte in Kleinverlagen und in vielen Anthologien seine Gedichte. Seine drei Anthologien „The Outlaw Bible of American Literature“, „The Outlaw Bible of Amerocan Poetry“, „The Outlaw Bible of Americasn Essays“  wurden zu Kultbüchern in Amerika. pd

Alan Kaufman ist in der Bronx, NY aufgewachsen und lebt heute in San Francisco. In den Neunzigerjahrenentstand in den USA eine neue literarische Bewegung: Fast über Nacht traten Spoken Word Poeten im ganzen Land an die Öffenlichkeit.

Kommentar: Der Mann schreibt was Sache ist und doch, der berühmte jüdische Humor beißt immer wieder. Gut, dass das Buch endlich auf Deutsch vorliegt! Urs Heinz Aerni
