Lincoln in the Bardo

这篇书评可能有关键情节透露

读这本书的前20页几乎让我崩溃。 故事的开始是一段第一人称的独白. 忽然之间独白戛然而止,下方用一行小字写了下一个名字;紧接着独白变成了对白。第二个人的名字出现了。两个人有一搭没一搭的对话,谈论着自己濒死的经验,如同一出荒诞的舞台剧。后来我知道,这两个“人”甚至...  (展开)

读者应该永远敬畏短篇小说家

“And as the sun came up, we prayed, each within ourselves, our usual prayer: To still be here when the sun next set. And discover, in those first moments of restored movement, that we had again been granted the great mother-gift: Time. More time.” 用死亡...  (展开)

thoughts

Loved the poignancy of the first quarter of this book, and amazed at how well the chapters comprised of quotations had worked. Tonally compassionate with his signature breezy dark humor. Saunders paints his refreshing metaphors with poetic tenderness and sw...  (展开)
