Book: MARRA, ANTHONY «The Tsar of Love And Techno»

The Tsar of Love And Techno

This stunning, exquisitely written collection introduces a cast of remarkable characters whose lives intersect in ways both life-affirming and heartbreaking. A 1930s Soviet censor painstakingly corrects offending photographs, deep underneath Leningrad, bewitched by the image of a disgraced prima ballerina. A chorus of women recount their stories and those of their grandmothers, former gulag prisoners who settled their Siberian mining town. Two pairs of brothers share a fierce, protective love. Young men across the former USSR face violence at home and in the military. And great sacrifices are made in the name of an oil landscape unremarkable except for the almost incomprehensibly peaceful past it depicts. In stunning prose, with rich character portraits and a sense of history reverberating into the present, The Tsar of Love and Techno is a captivating work from one of our greatest new talents.

Der Marra (arabisch ‏جبل مرةDschabal Marra; auch Jebel Marra) ist ein 3042 m [1] hoher Vulkan auf dem Marra-Plateau im Westen des Sudan.

Er liegt in den Bundesstaaten Schamal Darfur und Dschanub Darfur zwischen der Stadt al-Faschir und der Grenze zum Tschad.

Das Marra-Plateau umfasst eine Fläche von 1.500 km² und hat eine Höhe von 1500 bis 3042 m über dem Meeresspiegel.

Der Marra ist von Steinwüste (Hammada) umgeben. Im Innern der 5 km weiten Deriba-Caldera, einer 4000 Jahre alten Caldera, liegen die beiden Deriba-Seen.

Im Darfur-Konflikt ist das Bergmassiv Jebel Marra ein Rückzugsort für Rebellen, an dem auch zahlreiche Kriegsvertriebene Zuflucht suchen.[2]
