【誠品選書】
《無意義,是意義的開始》


睽違11年,米蘭‧昆德拉以近乎天成的文學技巧,鋪展一場無謂的盛宴。「無意義,我的朋友,這是存在的本質」當我們認出生命並無意義,就是好心情的開始。這時代飛快前進,世代間彼此試圖理解也成徒然,對話成了喧鬧獨白。我們愛極他的聰明狡詰與譏諷哲思──和喜愛的作家身處同一時間代的精采,莫過於有人為你寫出那些難以言說、屬於當代的震動。

這本小說是句點,是遺言,總結了昆德拉的寫作生涯,也是一場終極的如釋重負。

繼《無知》後,暌違11年,文壇大師米蘭‧昆德拉最新小說力作!
英文版6/18全球同步上市

我們從很久以前就知道,這個世界已經不可能推翻,不可能改造,
也不可能讓它向前的悲慘進程停下來了。
我們只有一種可能的抵抗,就是不把它當一回事。


無意義,我的朋友,這是存在的本質。
它隨時隨地永遠與我們同在。
就算沒有人想看到它,它也會出現:

在恐怖之中,在血腥鬥爭之中,在最不幸的厄運之中。
要在這麼悲劇性的境況裡認出它,直呼其名,
這經常需要一點勇氣。

可是我們不只要認出它,還要去愛它,
無意義,我們必須學習去愛它。
呼吸這圍繞著我們的無意義,
它是智慧的鎖鑰,它是好心情的鎖鑰……

本書中文簡介出自《無謂的盛宴》皇冠出版


'Enchanting ... it explores all aspects of a declining civilisation without taking any of them too seriously ... In this novel of Flaubertian seduction, free of blame and guilt, insignificance is the very essence of life.' La Repubblica

Casting light on the most serious of problems and at the same time saying not one serious sentence; being fascinated by the reality of the contemporary world and at the same time completely avoiding realism - that's The Festival of Insignificance. Readers who know Kundera's earlier books know that the wish to incorporate an element of the "unserious" in a novel is not at all unexpected of him. In Immortality, Goethe and Hemingway stroll through several chapters together talking and laughing. And in Slowness, Vera, the author's wife, says to her husband: "you've often told me you meant to write a book one day that would have not a single serious word in it... I warn you: watch out. Your enemies are lying in wait."

Now, far from watching out, Kundera is finally and fully realizing his old aesthetic dream in this novel that we could easily view as a summation of his whole work. A strange sort of summation. Strange sort of epilogue. Strange sort of laughter, inspired by our time, which is comical because it has lost all sense of humor. What more can we say? Nothing. Just read.
