星期五出去吃饭的时候才看完的。一本短篇小说集,一共有五个故事:the thing in the forest, body art, stone woman, raw material, pink ribbon。读完印象深刻,久久不能忘怀。都是什么样的故事呢?我花了很多时间想,想故事里面的人物感情,重新回忆细节,几乎不能停下来。pink robbon是最喜欢的:刻骨铭心的爱情,渐渐苍老的人生,所有的回忆只能自己拥有,生活的伴侣迷失在老年痴呆的世界里面,再也回不来了。想起Iris Murdoch和John Bailey的故事,还有Bailey写的回忆录。还有Nancy和Ronald Reagan。爱情到了尽头,只有一方无止无境的付出,竟然比开头还要精彩。

a stone woman我也很喜欢,虽然觉得里面太多生词了*_* 是什么意思呢?woman going through griefing process? 以前在new yorker上面看过一个小说ice man, 一个日本作家写的,讲一个女孩子嫁了一个ice man, never warm, has to live in antarctic,印象深刻的很。让人忍不住的赞叹别人的想像力怎么这么丰富呢。

the thing in the forest以前在new yorker上面读过。也很有意思。what is the thing? adult life itself?

其它两个有点普通,相比之下。但是总的来说,真是够我想一阵子的了。而且一次想不出,还要想很多次。
