內容簡介


2014年諾貝爾文學獎得主Patrick Modiano作品《戴眼鏡的女孩》,法國插畫家桑貝插畫

當我不戴眼鏡時,眼底的世界不再那麼粗糙,人與物銳利分明的輪廓邊線消失了,全變得矇矓、柔和;聲音也逐次低沈……一個戴眼鏡的女孩,與父親兩人在巴黎第十區度過的一段童年故事。他們住在一間倉庫的樓上,父親進行著詭異的轉運工作,母親曾是一名舞蹈者,人在美國……

法國名作家蒙迪安諾以其獨特的簡單回溯敘述方式,帶領我們進入一個溫暖和煦的世界,非常平實的情節,卻包括了一種生命的深度內容,配合法國插畫家桑貝趣味式插圖,讓閱讀過本書的讀者愛不釋手。

This charming book will delight any child or adult who appreciates ballet, Paris, New York, childhood, and mystery (not necessarily in that order). The book's plot is deceptively simple: Catherine, the eponymous heroine, begins her story watching her own daughter demonstrate jazz steps in their ballet school on a snowy afternoon in New York. Memory takes her (and the reader) back to her childhood, spent in the tenth arrondissement of Paris. In her youth, Catherine lives with her gentle father, Georges Certitude, who runs a shipping business with his partner, a loud, failed poet named Casterade. The real partners in this story, however, are the father and daughter who share the simple pleasures of daily life: sitting in the church square, walking to school, going to her ballet class every Thursday afternoon.

Behind this gossamer storyline, Catherine Certitude is filled with mystery. Why did Georges change his name to Certitude? What kind of trouble with the law did Casterade rescue him from? Exactly what does Georges do, and what kind of deals is he always discussing with men in worn raincoats? Why did Catherine's mother, herself a ballerina, leave Georges to return to New York? That these mysteries remain mysteries is part of the book's charm. But that Catherine and her father love the ballet, music, and City of Lights, is certain.
