當全世界的作家、電影製作人和藝術家們開始思考COVID19疫情的影響,不妨來聽一聽香港作家們的想法,他們的近期的作品展現了對於香港疫情經歷的反思。Michael O’Sullivan的《Lockdown Lovers》是關於六個人類和一隻穿山甲的故事;以香港、中國和愛爾蘭為背景,本書講述了這些個體如何在封鎖和隔離中如何應對外界壓力。從冷靜的觀察、激烈的衝突、和所愛之人分離的痛苦,這部小說提醒了我們,人與人的聯繫能在至暗時刻帶來慰藉。Collier Nogues的散文《A Clock for Seeing》(選錄於文集《Writing in Difficult Times》),思考了我們對時間的概念如何在集體與個人的重壓下受到衝擊,而寫作和攝影如何幫助我們和自身和解,並維繫與所愛之人的關係。吳智欣雙語詩集,維多利亞港的野豬》審視了在日益兩極化和飛速變化的社會中的生活。她近期關於生態和自然的詩歌作品也基於這一主題。Karen Cheung的作品,包括她收錄於《Writing in Difficult Times》的散文和她即將出版的新書,都聚焦香港現代生活的荒誕,以及穿插在世界頭條大事之間靜謐平凡的時刻。
