  • "Seine Mutter ist seit fünf Jahren tot, aber Isaac denkt immer an sie. Jetzt ist er zwanzig und will nur noch weg aus der Provinzstadt. Wenn hier ein Kind Schläge kriegt, hat der Schlagende keine Schuld, es lag im Blut, es war die Schuld von irgendwem, lange vor ihm, Gott vielleicht. Aber selbst Gott hat diesen Ort längst verlassen. Seit der Schließung des Stahlwerkes läuft hier nichts mehr. Isaac wohnt bei seinem Vater und träumt von der großen Welt. Am liebsten zusammen mit seinem besten Freund Billy Poe, von dem alle dachten, er würde ein großer Football-Spieler. Gemeinsam machen sie sich auf den Weg."
  • "A novel as splendidly crafted and original as any written in recent decades, American Rust is both darkly disturbing and richly compelling. Philipp Meyer's first novel signals the arrival of a new voice in American letters. Patricia Cornwell."@en

  • "Set in a beautiful but economically devastated Pennsylvania steel town, American Rust is a novel of the lost American dream and the desperation--as well as the acts of friendship, loyalty, and love--that arise from its loss. From local bars to trainyards to prison, it is the story of two young men, bound to the town by family, responsibility, inertia, and the beauty around them, who dream of a future beyond the factories and abandoned homes."
  • "Isaac is the town genius, a young man left behind to care for his paralyzed father after his mother's suicide and his sister's departure for Yale. On the day that he steals $6,000 from his old man's desk and sets off to California to study astrophysics, he and his sister's ex-boyfriend Poe, a former high school baseball star, are waylaid by a group of transients. Isaac's inadvertent murder of one of the men changes the friends' fates and tests the loyalties of their friendship and the loyalties of their lovers, families, and the town itself, forever."
