兩個家庭的寓言故事:Damon Galgut與郭小櫓的對談

兩本小說描述社會變遷如何影響家庭以及文化和種族鴻溝; 一個家庭在南非支離破碎,而另一個家庭在英國開始成形。 Damon Galgut的《The Promise》描述一個南非家庭聚在一起參加葬禮的故事;這時,一代與一代之間和種族的緊張關係浮出水面,儘管南非正從分裂走向一個新的所謂公平社會的變化過程。這本複雜而有力的書入圍了2021年布克獎,被譽為文學傑作。郭小櫓的《A Lover’s Discourse》描述一名剛到脫歐後的英國的中國女性,發現英國對外國人的敵視,但她不但發展愛情,並開始建設未來。這本書以及移民、語言、疏遠和牽引著人與人之間的幽默和親密感,以反映人類之間的聯繫。 Jo Lusby將主持兩位傑出的現代主義作家的談話。
