內容簡介

《忽然一陣敲門聲》與《再讓我說個故事好不好》作者艾加凱磊(Etgar Keret)的第一部非小說作品,紀念從兒子出生到父親死亡的7年"美好"時光,獲選亞馬遜2015年6月最佳圖書。

「很棒的作家,完全不像我所知道的其他作家。他是下一個世代的聲音。」
--《魔鬼詩篇》作者/Salman Rushdie

「如果我可以叫你去讀一個作家的書,那他一定是Etgar Keret。他不可思議地混合了幽默與悲慘,憤世嫉俗與同理心,以雍容大度的敘事佔據了每一頁最細微的部分,他成為我的最愛之一,或許也會是你的。」
--《洛杉磯時報》(The Los Angeles Times)

艾加凱磊的妻子臨盆前,所有的醫生們忙著處理因為恐怖攻擊事件被送到急診室的傷患,兒子Lev就在這樣的情形下誕生。戰爭的危脅籠罩著全家並滲透到日常生活中,無獨有偶的,作者的父親得了癌症。

從這黑暗現實中升起的是作者一連串對所有事物的反思,從三歲兒子即將從軍到隱藏在憤怒鳥背後的恐怖分子思維;兒子Lev堅持自己是隻貓,從人的責任與規矩中解放了自己。凱磊的每個兄弟姊妹,選擇了完全不同的人生道路,在父親死後的頭七重聚,經歷了將家庭永遠繫在一起的痛苦與愛。本書展現了他無法被複製的風格,充滿了驚奇、生命與愛,他哀痛的反思以及無法壓抑的幽默。


A brilliant, life-affirming, and hilarious memoir from a genius ("The" "New York Times") and master storyteller. 

The seven years between the birth of Etgar Keret s son and the death of his father were good years, though still full of reasons to worry. Lev is born in the midst of a terrorist attack. Etgar s father gets cancer. The threat of constant war looms over their home and permeates daily life. 

What emerges from this dark reality is a series of sublimely absurd ruminations on everything from Etgar s three-year-old son s impending military service to the terrorist mind-set behind Angry Birds. There s Lev s insistence that he is a cat, releasing him from any human responsibilities or rules. Etgar s siblings, all very different people who have chosen radically divergent paths in life, come together after his father s shivah to experience the grief and love that tie a family together forever. This wise, witty memoir Etgar s first nonfiction book published in America, and told in his inimitable style is full of wonder and life and love, poignant insights, and irrepressible humor."
