內容簡介


2003年諾貝爾文學獎得主J. M. Coetzee,繼《耶穌的童年》(The Childhood of Jesus)之後,獲2016年曼.布克獎提名的續集The Schooldays of Jesus。

「Coetzee並不想要被理解或被解釋,他只想要作品有人讀。而這本The Schooldays of Jesus的確是一本可讀的作品。」
--《時代雜誌》(The Times)

「Coetzee以越來越執著的性格,證明他是位大師…讀者對他的喜愛而押對了寶,就是這本書了。雖說對尚未出版的書押注是有風險的,但是就Coetzee的這本書來說,它有可能是年度圖書,忘了它的競爭對手吧!」
--《愛爾蘭時報》(Irish Times)

《耶穌的童年》裡總是不停發問的小男孩David與隨行照顧他的Simón和Inés一行三人落腳到一座名為Estrella的小鎮,David學習新的語言,也開始交起朋友。不僅如此,他還有一隻名叫Bolívar的大狗保護他。David快7歲了,到了該上學的年紀。Simón和Inés工作的農場主人,引導David註冊了一間舞蹈學校。就在這兒,David穿著他金色的舞鞋,學習如何將數字從天上召喚下來。然而,也是在這裡,他發現大人們的所作所為讓他不安。

在這部迷人的寓言式小說中,Coetzee技巧地處理了幾個重要課題,諸如:成長、身為”父”或”母”的意義、理智與情感間不斷地拉扯以及我們如何選擇過什麼樣的生活。

When you travel across the ocean on a boat, all your memories are washed away and you start a completely new life. That is how it is. There is no before. There is no history. The boat docks at the harbour and we climb down the gangplank and we are plunged into the here and now. Time begins.

Davíd is the small boy who is always asking questions. Simón and Inés take care of him in their new town Estrella. He is learning the language; he has begun to make friends. He has the big dog Bolívar to watch over him. But he'll be seven soon and he should be at school. And so, Davíd is enrolled in the Academy of Dance. It's here, in his new golden dancing slippers, that he learns how to call down the numbers from the sky. But it's here too that he will make troubling discoveries about what grown-ups are capable of.

In this mesmerising allegorical tale, Coetzee deftly grapples with the big questions of growing up, of what it means to be a parent, the constant battle between intellect and emotion, and how we choose to live our lives.
