Overview

Der Soziologieprofessor Morrie Schwartz erfährt, dass er höchstens noch zwei Jahre zu leben hat. Die Diagnose, eine schwere Erkrankung des Nervensystems, lässt keine Hoffnung auf Heilung. Statt darüber zu verzweifeln und sich ganz in sich selbst zurückzuziehen, macht Morrie es sich zur Aufgabe, seine letzten Monate so sinnvoll und produktiv wie möglich zu verbringen. Während er den schleichenden Verfall seines Körpers erlebt, sprüht sein Geist vor Ideen. Sein Leben war immer vom Mitgefühl für andere bestimmt, und auch jetzt möchte er andere Menschen an seiner Erfahrung Teil haben lassen: an seiner Lebenserfahrung ebenso wie an der Erfahrung, dem Tod entgegen zu gehen, die ihn viele neue Einsichten über das Leben gewinnen lässt.

Den Kontakt zu seinem Lieblingsprofessor hatte der erfolgreiche Sportjournalist Mitch Albom eigentlich aufrecht erhalten wollen. Sechzehn Jahre nach seinem Collegeabschluss erfährt er durch Zufall von Morries schwerer Krankheit und stattet dem alten Herrn einen Besuch ab. Ein Pflichttermin in dem prall gefüllten Kalender des Journalisten, der im Laufe der Zeit seine Träume gegen ein gut bezahltes Leben im fünften Gang eingetauscht hatte. Mitch verlässt das Haus tief beeindruckt von der Gelassenheit, ja sogar Heiterkeit, mit der Morrie seine Krankheit erlebt und seinem Tod entgegensieht – dieser feiert zum Beispiel seine Beerdigung zu Lebzeiten, um die Trauer und die ihm gebührende Anerkennung persönlich zu erfahren.

Durch einen Streik an seiner Arbeit gehindert und zum Nachdenken gebracht, macht sich Mitch ein zweites Mal und schließlich regelmäßig jeden Dienstag auf den Weg zu seinem wiedergefundenen Professor. So beginnt der letzte gemeinsame Kurs. Die Gesprächsthemen zwischen Lehrer und Schüler berühren die fundamentalen Fragen unseres Daseins: Es geht um das Leben und seinen Sinn, das Sterben, die Liebe, den Erfolg, Gefühle wie Reue und Selbstmitleid, Familie, das Älterwerden ...

Meet the Author

Mitch Albom
Mitch Albom introduced the wisdom of a man named Morrie with the moving account of the time he spent with him before his death, Tuesdays with Morrie -- a #1 bestseller that became nothing less than a phenomenon. Albom followed up the blockbuster success of Morrie with several novels that took his inspirational message to new -- and bestselling -- heights. He has also penned sports-oriented nonfiction, and his popular newspaper columns have been collected into anthologies.

Biography

You might call Mitch Albom a jock-of-all-trades. Before becoming one of America's most beloved sport commentators and columnists, Albom was an amateur boxer, a nightclub singer and pianist, and a stand-up comedian. He is a nationally syndicated fixture of radio and print, and has been featured as an analyst on ESPN. He has covered college football and college basketball in two successful nonfiction books, and the best of his articles have been collected in a series of anthologies called Live Albom. However, what catapulted Albom into the literary limelight was the mega-selling 1997 memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie, his first book to sidestep sports altogether..

Tuesdays... is a moving account of Albom's reconnection with his old Brandeis professor and college mentor, Morrie Schwartz. After learning Schwartz had been stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, Albom sought him out in Boston, and throughout a long, harrowing year, they spent every Tuesday together. As he faced his inevitable death, Schwartz shared a lifetime of memories, regrets, fears, and philosophical insights with his former student. A story that could easily have toppled into maudlin sentimentality, the memoir succeeded in large part because of Albom's skillful writing. Published in 30 languages in 34 countries, the book remains an international bestseller.

In 2003, Albom forayed into fiction with The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the emotionally resonant story of an old man who dies, convinced his life has had no meaning -- only to discover that nothing could be further from the truth. It, too, scored a huge success for the author – as did his followup novel, For One Day More.

Good To Know

The Oprah Winfrey-produced version of Tuesdays with Morrie, starring Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria, won 4 Emmy Awards and was the most-watched TV movie of 1999.

Before Albom was a household name, he was known on the comedy circuit as the warm-up act for Gabe "Welcome Back Kotter" Kaplan.

Albom is an enthusiastic philanthropist, having founded two charitable programs, the Dream Fund and A Time to Help.
