The Wall - John Lanchester 反烏托邦——人類的未來?

The Wall John Lanchester

Longlisted for the 2019 Man Booker Prize, UK author and journalist John Lanchester’s The Wall is a dystopian thriller. In a gripping tale filled with high stakes and terrifying consequences, Lanchester depicts a grim and all-too-realistic near-future Britain, torn apart by the rising seas, refugee crises and authoritarianism- issues already threatening to emerge and engulf our familiar world. Join Lanchester and Frederick Studeman, literary editor of the Financial Times to discuss the many possibilities for future dystopias if we continue to ignore present threats and signs of danger. 

英國作家和新聞工作者John Lanchester的作品《The Wall》是一部扣人心弦的反烏托邦驚慄小說,入選為2019 英國曼布克獎。書中,Lanchester所描繪的英國已變成了一個被難民問題和威權主義吞噬、為海平面不斷上升所困的國家。這幅殘酷無情的圖景,彷彿時刻會現身、吞沒我們現在熟悉的世界,更可能即將成為我們的未來。Lanchester 告誡我們,如果繼續無視這些危險預警,這些反烏托邦故事可能會成真。正因如此,我們更應對反烏托邦的未來多加注意和探討。本節目將由《金融時報》文學編輯Frederick Studeman主持。
