內容簡介

內容簡介 第一人稱單數村上春樹睽違六年的短篇小說集短篇小說,是一個世界的無數切口當世界不斷變遷唯有故事留住剎那光景「第一人稱單數」是切取世界某個斷片的「單眼」。但那樣的切口越多,「單眼」就越會無窮交錯成為「複眼」。到那時,我不再是我,僕(我)也不再是僕。以及,對,你也不再是你。屆時會發生甚麼?沒有發生甚麼?歡迎來到「第一人稱單數」的世界。我還是想談談她。 關於她,我所知道的是──她創作短歌,出版了一本歌集。說是歌集,其實只是拿類似風箏線的東西將印刷出來的紙張綴成一冊,再加上簡單的封面,是非常簡單的小本子,甚至談不上自費出版。但裡面收錄的某些短歌,不可思議地深深烙印我心。她寫的短歌,幾乎都是關於男女之愛,以及人的死亡。彷彿要展現愛與死是如何頑強拒絕彼此的分離、分裂。你/和我的距離/好像很遠吧?當時是否該/在木星轉機?將耳朵/貼在石枕上/能聽見的是血液流動的/無聲,無聲我們的身體無法回頭地時時刻刻步向殞滅。當我們閉眼片刻,再次睜眼時,會發現許多東西已消逝。被深夜的強風吹襲,他們──有既定名稱的和沒有既定名稱的──全都了無痕跡地消失了。只剩下些許記憶。不,就連記憶都不大靠得住。我們的身上當時真正發生了甚麼,有誰能夠明確斷言?──《第一人稱單數‧石枕下》都會的奇幻愛情、生活的過往片段、人性的善惡辨證、虛實的互見筆法結合了短歌、散文、音樂與小說,展開村上風格的全新複眼小說八個題材視角各異的精采短篇,可說是邁入從心所欲不逾矩之年的村上春樹,回望人生愛與死主題的珠玉之作連發。〈石枕下〉憶起大二時與打工相遇的文學少女偶然間的情感交流。〈奶油〉寫出無法在生活中獲得解釋、不合邏輯却又擾亂心靈,脫離現實的質疑,耐人尋味。熱愛爵士樂的村上也寫下這篇似真似幻的音樂小說〈查理帕克演奏巴薩諾瓦(Charlie Parker Plays Bossa Nova)〉,故事中音樂報導的寫手虛構了一張夢幻專輯,卻因此衍生出如夢境與真實世界的奇異接軌。〈與披頭同行(With the Beatles)〉和披頭四的專輯同名,是充滿往日夏日氣息與搖滾樂的初戀青春紀事。值得注目的還有〈養樂多燕子詩集〉,除了洋溢著對棒球的熱愛,更結合了詩作、散文體裁,也是繼《棄貓》後再次難得揭露少時與雙親的生活回憶。令人印象深刻的〈謝肉祭Carnaval〉談論醜陋,也等於談論美麗,更兼論善惡,引人反覆思索在生活這個面具底下的素顏,究竟是惡靈或是天使?《東京奇譚集》中非常受到讀者喜愛的〈品川猴〉,此猴再次登場於續篇〈品川猴的告白〉,揭露品川猴啟人疑竇的身世之謎與極致的戀情,極致的孤獨。同名篇章〈第一人稱單數〉,在春夜滿月裡的酒吧中發生了一段質疑自我的邂逅,故事結束了却餘韻未了,彷彿跌入暗闇的酒吧空間,以小說開啟一個不眠的微醺之夜。跳出旁觀者觀察描寫的故事框架,由我作為故事的主述者寄附在回憶這個旋律的延伸曲線上,無定軌的視角接縫出新的故事篇章,由複眼形態看人生,那些看似支離破碎的記憶片段,被偷走的名字與記憶,突顯得有味生動。綜觀全書,最後發現活著不就是一首對於青春、愛與死亡的追想曲。本中文書介出自《一人称単数》時報文化出版企業股份有限公司出版A mindbending new collection of short stories from the beloved, internationally acclaimed, Haruki Murakami. The eight masterly stories in this new collection are all told in the first person by a classic Murakami narrator. From nostalgic memories of youth, meditations on music, and an ardent love of baseball to dreamlike scenarios and invented jazz albums, together these stories challenge the boundaries between our minds and the exterior world. Occasionally, a narrator who may or may not be Murakami himself is present. Is it memoir or fiction? The reader decides.

作者介紹

作者介紹 Haruki Murakami In 1978, Haruki Murakami was twenty-nine and running a jazz bar in downtown Tokyo. One April day, the impulse to write a novel came to him suddenly while watching a baseball game. That first novel, Hear the Wind Sing, won a new writers' award and was published the following year. More followed, including A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, but it was Norwegian Wood, published in 1987, which turned Murakami from a writer into a phenomenon. His books became bestsellers, were translated into many languages, including English, and the door was thrown wide open to Murakami's unique and addictive fictional universe. Murakami writes with admirable discipline, producing ten pages a day, after which he runs ten kilometres (he began long-distance running in 1982 and has participated in numerous marathons and races), works on translations, and then reads, listens to records and cooks. His passions colour his non-fiction output, from What I Talk About When I Talk About Running to Absolutely On Music, and they also seep into his novels and short stories, providing quotidian moments in his otherwise freewheeling flights of imaginative inquiry. In works such as The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, 1Q84 and Men Without Women, his distinctive blend of the mysterious and the everyday, of melancholy and humour, continues to enchant readers, ensuring Murakami's place as one of the world's most acclaimed and well-loved writers.
