图书描述

A brilliant writer imagines a fictional conversation between a mother and the teenage son she lost to suicide. Yiyun Li confronts grief and transforms it into art, in a book of surprising beauty and love.

The narrator writes, "I had but one delusion, which I held onto with all my willpower: we once gave Nikolai a life of flesh and blood; and I'm doing it over again, this time by words."

Written in the months after the author lost a child to suicide and composed as a story cycle, this conversation between mother and child unfolds in a timeless world. Deeply intimate, poignant, and moving, these conversations portray the love and complexity in a relationship across generations, even as they capture the pain of sadness, longing, and loss.

In writing this book, Yiyun Li was inspired by a line from Proust's Remembrance of Things Past "Ideas come to us as the successors to griefs, and griefs, at the moment when they change into ideas, lose some part of their power to injure the heart; the transformation itself, even, for an instant, releases suddenly a little joy."

Meeting life's deepest sorrow with originality, precision and poise, Where Reasons End is suffused with intimacy, inescapable pain, and fierce love.

边读边叹气 太私人了几乎无法更说更多了

"Where else can we meet but in stories now?" 读完长叹一口气。李是很聪明的作家,用词简洁但讲究。这书写作家母亲在一个名为nowhere的空间里与自杀的儿子相遇,由此展开的一系列对话——母亲会的和能够使用的只有文字,于是母子只能在文字的空间里重逢,但因这空间是她构筑的,某种意义上来说对话又可能是自身互搏(母亲几乎说什么都会遭儿子反驳)。纸页间满是犀利的箴言金句,而这是提纯过的现实——母子的对话几乎全围绕着抽象的语法与事物——回到现实中一切不可能如此简洁、工整、优雅。写suffering和perfection的几段让人心中有钝钝的痛感。这应该算李的autofiction,感觉她是非常不放过自己的那类人。希望她获得理解,不论从自己身上,还是从他人身上。
