非常年代

[美]多莉丝·基恩斯·古德温 / 北京时代华文书局 / 2015-07-15 /
美国,第二次世界大战前后10年,这是一个不同寻常的时代。在这部普利策奖获奖作品中,多莉丝•基恩斯•古德温以“编年体”的形式讲述了美国及其第一家庭齐心协力、历经磨难最终取得的辉煌成就。富兰克林•罗斯福和他的国家:在最空前的经济大萧条中,他坐着轮椅走进白宫,从此开始了空前绝后的四个任期。从著名的罗斯福新政,到珍珠港事件,从大西洋宪章,到雅尔塔会议,他带领美国,最终赢得反法西斯战争的胜利。贯穿其中的是:他的坚强、勇敢、力量、信念、承诺、远见,他极度的自信,他的感染力,他的时机感、政治技巧和献身精神,他的理想主义和现实态度;他的孤独,他的软弱,他的无助……富兰克林?罗斯福和英国首相丘吉尔的政治友谊:他们的友谊只用一句话就可以概括——“大不列颠首相对美利坚合众国总统没什么好遮遮掩掩的”。富兰克林•罗斯福和埃莉诺•罗斯福的婚姻和情感:他们的肉体永远分离,但他们的精神息息相关。她用她的“特权”推进国民的福祉和社会正义,她在世界历史上开创了“第一夫人政治”,被称为“世界上最伟大的女性”。富兰克林•罗斯福和他的情人及朋友们:这是一种特别的生活方式,由此,他克服了肢体瘫痪带来的局限,也填补了不美满的婚姻带来的情感需求。从罗斯福夫妇的人生故事中,我们可以看到生命与死亡、爱情与友情、罪恶与良知、信仰与理性等生命主题。罗斯福总统及夫人埃莉诺•罗斯福正是那个时代美国精神最杰出代表。

天空的另一半

[美] 尼可拉斯·d.克里斯多夫, [美]雪莉·邓恩 / 浙江人民出版社 / 2014-05-15 /
“过去50年来,在世界范围内遭到杀害的女孩,比整个20世纪死于所有战争的男性还要多。仅仅因为她们的性别。”在普利策新闻奖得主尼可拉斯·D.克里斯多夫和雪莉·邓恩夫妇这对有丰富联合报道经验的记者伉俪的带领下,我们在本书中去亚非拉国家做了一次长途冒险旅行。在那里,我们看到性别歧视、性暴力、厌女价值观、家庭暴力、处女情结等现象,让女性犹如仍置身在18、19世纪的炼狱。我们也看到那里的女性进行了艰苦卓绝的抗争,以及如何一点小小的帮助就能改变她们的命运。通过这些故事,作者向我们展示了女性的生存困境,整个世界对此困境的态度,以及女性身上自我觉醒的力量。她们将绝望化为希望,勇敢争取生命尊严。本书以人物故事为线索,佐以大量的数据,没有局限于对女性遭遇的报道,还展示了社会、经济、文化、心理等多维度的思考。同时,本书也为那些想为世界尽一份力的人们提供了切实可行的参考。

The Road

Cormac McCarthy / Knopf / 2006-09-26 /
A searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. They sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearting, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, “each the other’s world entire,” are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

The Known World

Jones, Edward P. / HarperPerennial / 2004-07-01 /
Masterful, Pulitzer-prize winning literary epic about the painful and complex realities of slave life on a Southern plantation. An utterly original exploration of race, trust and the cruel truths of human nature, this is a landmark in modern American literature. Henry Townsend, a black farmer, boot maker, and former slave, becomes proprietor of his own plantation -- as well as his own slaves. When he dies, his widow, Caldonia, succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart: slaves take to escaping under the cover of night, and families who had once found love beneath the weight of slavery begin to betray one another. Beyond the Townsend household, the known world also unravels: low-paid white patrollers stand watch as slave 'speculators' sell free black people into slavery, and rumours of slave rebellions set white families against slaves who have served them for years. An ambitious, luminously written novel that ranges from the past to the present, The Known World seamlessly weaves together the lives of the freed and the enslaved -- and allows all of us a deeper understanding of the enduring multi-dimensional world created by the institution of slavery.

The Fixer

Bernard Malamud / Farrar, Straus and Giroux / 2004-05-05 /
A classic that won Malamud both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award "The Fixer" (1966) is Bernard Malamud's best-known and most acclaimed novel -- one that makes manifest his roots in Russian fiction, especially that of Isaac Babel. Set in Kiev in 1911 during a period of heightened anti-Semitism, the novel tells the story of Yakov Bok, a Jewish handyman blamed for the brutal murder of a young Russian boy. Bok leaves his village to try his luck in Kiev, and after denying his Jewish identity, finds himself working for a member of the anti-Semitic Black Hundreds Society. When the boy is found nearly drained of blood in a cave, the Black Hundreds accuse the Jews of ritual murder. Arrested and imprisoned, Bok refuses to confess to a crime that he did not commit.
