《纽约时报》2021年度十大好书(2):《亲密》(Intimacies) epub+mobi+m4b
Intimacies《亲密》(Intimacies)
By Katie Kitamura 凯蒂·北村(音)著

In Kitamura’s fourth novel, an unnamed court translator in The Hague is tasked with intimately vanishing into the voices and stories of war criminals whom she alone can communicate with; falling meanwhile into a tumultuous entanglement with a man whose marriage may or may not be over for good. Kitamura’s sleek and spare prose elegantly breaks grammatical convention, mirroring the book’s concern with the bleeding lines between intimacies — especially between the sincere and the coercive. Like her previous novel, “A Separation,” “Intimacies” scrutinizes the knowability of those around us, not as an end in itself but as a lens on grand social issues from gentrification to colonialism to feminism. The path a life cuts through the world, this book seems to say, has its greatest significance in the effect it has on others.

在北村的第四部小说中,主角是一位未透露姓名的海牙法庭翻译,她的任务是密切关注战犯的声音和故事,只有她才能与他们交流;与此同时,她陷入了与一个男人的动荡纠葛之中,他的婚姻可能彻底结束,也可能不会结束。北村流畅、简洁的散文优雅地打破了语法惯例,反映了这本书对亲密关系之间痛苦边界的关注——尤其是真诚与强迫之间的边界。与她的上一部小说《分离》(A Separation)一样,《亲密》审视了身边人的可知性,这本身并不是目的,而是作为一个镜头,去观察从中产阶级化到殖民主义到女权主义等重大社会问题。这本书似乎在说,一个人的生命穿过这个世界的道路,其最大的意义在于对他人的影响。
