《当我们谈论爱情时我们在谈论什么》 In his second collection of stories, as in his first, Carver's characters are peripheral people--people without education, insight or prospects, people too unimaginative to even give up. Carver celebrates these men and women. 《当我们谈论爱情时我们在谈论什么》是雷蒙德-卡佛优秀的短篇小说集,由17篇短篇小说组成。讲述了如餐馆女招待、锯木厂工人、修车工、推销员和汽车旅馆管理员等社会底层的体力劳动者的生活。这些普通人有着普通人的愿望,做着再普通不过的事情,但他们发现自己在为生存而挣扎,无法达到在常人看来并不远大的人生目标。他们的生活中充满了窘困和不如意,婚姻破裂,失业,酗酒,破产。卡佛用"极简"的遣词、冷静疏离的叙事,表现了现代社会中人的边缘性以及现代人脆弱的自我意识。本书的出版,为美国短篇小说写作注入了新的生命,并为卡佛赢得了"美国的契诃夫"的称号,使他成为美国继海明威之后受到模仿最多的作家。

In often dreamlike peregrinations around his home towns of Liverpool, London and New York Andy Merrifield reflects on what cities mean to us and how they shape the way we think. As he wanders, Merrifield’s reveries circle questions: Can we talk about cities in the absolute, discovering their essence beneath the particulars? Is it possible truly to love or hate a city, to experience it carnally or viscerally? Might we find true love in the city? Merrifield does find

Reports of the death of reading are greatly exaggerated Do books have a future? Does reading? And what's the difference? Digital-age Jeremiahs lament that readers have lost patience for anything longer than a tweet.

In this extraordinary book, despite longstanding tabloid-style sexual preoccupations with monsters and victims, shame and virtue, JoAnn Wypijewski does exactly that.
