Man stelle sich vor: Jemand gibt eine Dinnerparty, man unterhält sich gepflegt über Gott und die Welt, und zwischen Hauptgang und Dessert steht einer der Gäste auf und geht kurz nach oben. Und kommt nicht wieder. Hat sich im Gästezimmer eingeschlossen. Auf Tage, Wochen, Monate ... Zu einer Dinnerparty bringt der Freund eines Freundes einen Fremden mit, Miles Garth. Man unterhält sich, wird angenehm betrunken, die Diskussionen werden lebhafter, und manchmal schrammen sie auch kurz am Streit vorbei. Man kennt das. Miles fügt sich einigermaßen in die Runde ein, auch wenn er als Vegetarier, der nicht trinkt und manchmal allzu offen spricht, irgendwie anders ist. Doch dann steht Miles mitten unter dem Essen auf, schließt sich im Gästezimmer ein und ist fortan nicht mehr dazu zu bewegen, wieder herauszukommen. Das kennt man eher nicht. Und es ist überdies ganz schön peinlich, zumal der ungebetene Dauergast bald überregionale Prominenz erlangt und sich um das Haus in Greenwich eine Miles-Fangemeinde schart, inklusive Protestbannern und Merchandising. Währenddessen versuchen vier Personen das Rätsel um Miles zu lösen: Anna, die vor dreißig Jahren mit Miles durch Europa reiste; Mark, der Miles zur Party mitgebracht hat; May, eine alte, demente Frau, deren Verbindung zu Miles sehr überraschend ist (und sehr zu Herzen geht); und die neunjährige Brooke, die vor Wissbegierde strotzt und Wortspiele über alles liebt. Ali Smith erzählt diese aberwitzige Geschichte, die eigentlich jedem hätte genauso passieren können, mit unvergleichlichem Wortwitz und rasantem Charme. Ihr Roman ist eine umwerfende Satire über die Brüchigkeit gesellschaftlicher Konventionen – und wie wenig es nur braucht, um die geheiligte Ordnung unseres bürgerlichen Lebens gehörig durcheinanderzubringen.

Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpädagogik), Note: 1,0, Universität Koblenz-Landau (Grundschulpädagogik), Veranstaltung: Seminar, 3 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ich habe mich mit dem Thema „Wohnen bei den Römern “ beschäftigt. Diese Thematik habe ich mir ausgesucht, weil ich bislang noch nicht damit vertraut war. Ich gehöre einer Generation an, die keine Integration des Faches Geschichte in den Sachunterricht genossen hat. In unserem Unterricht fanden lediglich die Fachbereiche Biologie, Chemie und Physik (natürlich in gemäßigter Form) Anschluss. In der Mittel- und Oberstufe des Gymnasiums war zwar das Fach Geschichte vertreten und wir sprachen auch über die Römer, jedoch erhielten dabei Fakten und Daten in Form von Kriegen, Schlachten und Ernennungen den Vorzug. Das alltägliche Leben und ins Besondere die Art des Wohnens blieben mir bisweilen verborgen.
