內容簡介

搖滾女詩人Patti Smith繼《時光列車》後,最新散文創作集

暢銷作家、龐克詩人 佩蒂.史密斯 剖析自身成長之旅 紀實回憶錄

 

在舊金山的某場演唱會結束後,史密斯發現自己正沿著聖塔克魯茲的海岸前行,正準備要開始獨自漫遊的一年。透過這本回憶錄,她帶著讀者走上一趟沒有邏輯可循、也沒有時間存在的旅程,沒有行程規劃,不知道前進的方向。

 

現實中的二月到來,迎來了農曆的猴年,隨著新年,意料之外的轉折也降臨,套句陌生人的話「任何事情都有可能發生,畢竟今年是猴年。」對於好奇心旺盛、永遠都在探索可能的史密斯來說,這一年更是她面對人生萬象的一年。

 

從加州到亞利桑那州,再到肯塔基的農場、人生導師的醫院病房、幻想中的地點,史密斯的回憶錄混雜了現實和虛幻,在她航向人生另一個旅程時,以此回憶錄將所獲得的智慧、覺察,還有最重要的,對於美好世界的期望獻給所有人。


From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids and M Train, a profound, beautifully realized memoir in which dreams and reality are vividly woven into a tapestry of one transformative year.

Following a run of New Year's concerts at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore, Patti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, with no design yet heeding signs, including a talking sign that looms above her, prodding and sparring like the Cheshire Cat. In February, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a stranger's words, “Anything is possible: after all, it's the year of the monkey.” For Patti Smith - inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life's gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America.

Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places - this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world.

Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith's signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
