內容簡介


理查德·耶茨(Richard Yates,1926-1992)是“焦慮時代的偉大作家”。1978著《好學校》。

耶茨行文簡樸直白,但直指人心;他筆下都足普通人的平凡生活,寫的是普通人的孤獨、失落與絕望。他不玩弄所謂超小說的寫作技巧,堅持對現實生活的描寫,即使那些他抱着最大熱情寫就的小說亦是如此。他筆下的許多人物,讀者在閱讀中因似曾相識而退縮,“我認識他,我有過他那樣的經歷。”耶茨讓你在閱讀中明白:生活之路有時會意外地轉個彎,給我們的並非驚喜,隻是無奈。

A bittersweet, haunting exploration of youth and the impact of war

At fifteen, Terry Flynn had the face of an angel and the body of a perfect athlete...

Set in a small boarding school on the eve of America's entry into World War Two, A Good School tells the story of William Grove, the nervous teenager trying to fit in; the betrayed alcoholic, Jack Draper; and Edith Stone, the teacher's daughter, who falls in love with the most popular boy in school.

Instantly acclaimed on its first publication, peopled with some of Richard Yates's most memorable characters, this tender, spare masterpiece is a haunting meditation on the twilight of youth, and an unforgettable description of the impact of war on the lives of an innocent generation.
