    《纽约时报》推荐:值得我们一读再读的好书(1)

      Americanah By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie《美国佬》(Americanah) ,作者奇玛曼达•戈兹•阿迪切

      

    This is “a story about belonging and not belonging in a world where identities are both increasingly fluid and defining, a story about how we are shaped by the places where we grew up and the places where we come to live.”

    这是“一个关于归属感的故事,在这个世界,身份越来越具流动性和决定性;这也是一个关于我们被成长和生活的地方所塑造的故事。”

      The Handmaid’s Tale By Margaret Atwood《使女的故事》,作者玛格丽特•阿特伍德

      

    “As she looks at six new bodies hanging there, Offred remembers the unnerving words of their warden Aunt Lydia: ‘Ordinary,’ she said, ‘is what you are used to. This may not seem ordinary to you now, but after a time it will. It will become ordinary.’”

    “当她看着悬在那里的六具尸体时,奥芙弗雷德想起了典狱长莉迪亚嬷嬷令人不安的话:‘习惯成自然,’她说。‘你现在可能觉得这不寻常,但假以时日,你就不会奇怪了。它会变得平平常常。’”

      Underworld By Don DeLillo《地下世界》(Underworld) ,作者唐•德里罗(Don DeLillo)

      

    “A vivid fever chart of American history, describing with uncanny prescience how random violence and paranoia had insinuated themselves into the collective unconscious, and how celebrities and terrorists were seizing hold of the national imagination.”

    “这是一张生动记录美国历史变化的体温表格,以不可思议的先见之明描述了肆意的暴力和偏执如何潜入了集体无意识,名人和恐怖分子如何攫取了这个国家的想象力。”
