內容簡介

本書是“搖滾樂界的拜倫”科恩的一部抒情如歌、具探索性的半自傳體小說。小說講述了加拿大猶太富家子弟布裡弗曼兒童時代一直到二十歲的生活,描述了他與同伴克蘭茲的友情,從童年到青年時代與進入他生命中的幾位女子之間的情愛,以一種兼具細膩情感與自我解嘲式的“無賴氣質”闡述了對戰爭、暴力、宗教、性以及階級平等的觀念看法。

This warm and lyrical semi-autobiographical first novel by singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen charts the coming of age of Lawrence Breavman, the only son of a Jewish Montreal family.

‘Children show scars like medals. Lovers use them as secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the world is made flesh.’

Lawrence Breavman seeks two things: love and beauty. Beginning with the innocent games of delicious misadventure with first love Lisa and the absorbing wanders through Montreal with best friend Krantz, Breavman's tale is a distant echo of ‘Catcher in the Rye’ and ‘Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’ – injected with 1960s aesthetics and Cohen’s unique poetry. As Breavman grows into a young man, the emerging writer continues his quest for beauty and love, finding himself in the arms of Shell and a burgeoning realisation of his own talent for appreciating majesty in the grotesque.

Semi-autobiographical, the angst and beauty of Cohen’s voice deftly channel the painful confusion of the journey into adulthood, and the friendships, wars and lovers that are our guides.
