Den einen galt er als Weiser und Messias, den anderen als Scharlatan und Ketzer. Eine der bedeutendsten Figuren des 18. Jahrhunderts ist er allemal: Jakob Frank, 1726 im polnischen Korol貿wka geboren, 1791 in Offenbach am Main gestorben. Als Anf眉hrer einer mystischen Bewegung, der Frankisten, war Jakob fest entschlossen, sein Volk, die Juden Osteuropas, endlich f眉r die Moderne zu 枚ffnen; zeit seines Lebens setzte er sich f眉r ihre Rechte ein, f眉r Freiheit, Gleichheit, Emanzipation. Tausende Anh盲nger scharte Jakob um sich, tausende Feinde machte er sich. Und sie alle, Bewunderer wie Gegner, erz盲hlen hier die schier unglaubliche Lebensgeschichte dieses Grenzg盲ngers, den es weder bei einer Religion noch je lange an einem Ort hielt. Es entsteht das schillernde Portr盲t einer kontroversen historischen Figur und das Panorama einer krisenhaften Welt an der Schwelle zur Moderne. Zugleich aber ist Olga Tokarczuks ebenso metaphysischer wie lebenspraller Roman ein Buch ganz f眉r unsere Zeit, stellt es doch die Frage danach, wie wir uns die Welt als eine gerechte vorstellen k枚nnen 鈥?ein Buch, das Grenzen 眉berschreitet.

Im Herbst 1956 besuchten BND-Mitarbeiter auf Einladung der CIA die USA. 脺ber mehrere Wochen bereisten sie das Land, um die amerikanische Kultur besser kennenzulernen. Doch in der Reisegruppe befand sich unerkannt auch ein KGB-Spion: Heinz Felfe. Er entdeckte Amerika im Auftrag Moskaus. Seit Anfang der f眉nfziger Jahre organisierte die CIA f眉r handverlesene westdeutsche Geheimdienstmitarbeiter Rundreisen durch die USA. Hinter dem Programm stand die 脺berlegung, den Teilnehmern die Gr枚脽e und Vielfalt, vor allem aber die 脺berlegenheit des Landes vor Augen zu f眉hren. Erstmalig zeichnet der Autor anhand von bislang unver枚ffentlichten Originalfotos, Reisenotizen und Dokumenten detailliert eine dieser Reisen nach. Die Lekt眉re der Dokumentation ist deshalb so spannend, weil wir mit unserem heutigen Wissen dem KGB-Spion Felfe 眉ber die Schulter schauen k枚nnen. Jahre sp盲ter wurde er als Spion im BND enttarnt, was den wohl gr枚脽ten Geheimdienst-Skandal in der Geschichte des BND ausl枚ste. Seine Amerika-Reise sollte dabei eine entscheidende Rolle spielen. Das Buch beschreibt ein noch nicht erz盲hltes Kapitel deutsch-amerikanischer Geheimdienstgeschichte und zeigt am Ende auf, welche Geheimnisse 眉ber die USA-Reise bis heute noch bestehen.
