莎士比亞書店(Shakespeare and Company)是開設在巴黎的傳奇書店,為許多成名與未成名的藝文創作者提供揮灑天分的舞台。本書收錄了與書店相關的作家,如”垮掉的一代”(Beat Generation)詩人艾倫.金斯堡(Allen Ginsberg)、以日記和私小說聞名的女性主義作家Anais Nin、演員兼作家伊森.霍克(Ethan Hawke)、《柳橙不是唯一的水果》的同性戀女作家Jeanette Winterson等與書店相關作家的散文與詩,還有許多從未問世的檔案資料,如美國黑人作家James Baldwin與Langston Hughes,以及《裸體午餐》作者,同樣是”垮掉的一代”成員的William Burroughs的照片。Jeanette Winterson撰寫的前言,與書店重新開幕的創辦人George Whitman女兒Silvia Whitman所寫的後記,豐富了本書的內容。

這家位於塞納河畔,與巴黎聖母院對望的書店,是一棟17世紀建成的破舊樓房,由George Whitman 在1951年重新開幕,它的前身是美國出版人Silvia Beach旅居巴黎時於1919年成立的書店兼出版社。愛爾蘭作家喬伊斯(James Joyce)的扛鼎之作尤里西斯(Ulysses)就是由書店在1922年出版的。Whitman秉承Beach的創店精神,繼續提供流浪異鄉的作家一個棲息之所,像是阿根廷盲人作家Jorge Luis Borges,反烏托邦小說《華氏451度》的Ray Bradbury等。到書店的客人,不僅可以在書店內的圖書室念書,還有一壺熱騰騰的茶,甚至可以免費住在書店裡。


A copiously illustrated account of the famed Paris bookstore on its 65th anniversary

This first-ever history of the legendary bohemian bookstore in Paris interweaves essays and poetry from dozens of writers associated with the shop--Allen Ginsberg, Anaïs Nin, Ethan Hawke, Robert Stone and Jeanette Winterson, among others--with hundreds of never-before-seen archival pieces, including photographs of James Baldwin, William Burroughs and Langston Hughes, plus a foreword by the celebrated British novelist Jeanette Winterson and an epilogue by Sylvia Whitman, the daughter of the store’s founder, George Whitman. The book has been edited by Krista Halverson, director of the newly founded Shakespeare and Company publishing house.

George Whitman opened his bookstore in a tumbledown 16th-century building just across the Seine from Notre-Dame in 1951, a decade after the original Shakespeare and Company had closed. Run by Sylvia Beach, it had been the meeting place for the Lost Generation and the first publisher of James Joyce’s Ulysses. (This book includes an illustrated adaptation of Beach’s memoir.) Since Whitman picked up the mantle, Shakespeare and Company has served as a home-away-from-home for many celebrated writers, from Jorge Luis Borges to Ray Bradbury, A.M. Homes to Dave Eggers, as well as for young authors and poets. Visitors are invited not only to read the books in the library and to share a pot of tea, but sometimes also to live in the bookstore itself--all for free.

More than 30,000 people have stayed at Shakespeare and Company, fulfilling Whitman’s vision of a “socialist utopia masquerading as a bookstore.” Through the prism of the shop’s history, the book traces the lives of literary expats in Paris from 1951 to the present, touching on the Beat Generation, civil rights, May ’68 and the feminist movement--all while pondering that perennial literary question, “What is it about writers and Paris?”
