其實是,有一天這些都會變得很重要!

Buzzfeed資深撰稿人、文化觀察家、印度裔加拿大移民第二代Scaachi Koul首部散文集,以幽默風趣的筆觸,寫偏見、家庭、網路霸凌、種族歧視、性別歧視、父權主義、文化,還有各種普世的悲慘!

出生於加拿大的Scaachi Koul,身為印度移民後代,自小就十分了解讓她的人生陷入苦難與悲慘的各種爛事,因為任何事情都可能讓她落入絕望深淵。不管是出差錯的購物之旅、和比基尼除毛師的尷尬對話、在印度婚禮中感受的格格不入、克服搭飛機的恐懼、與網路酸民過招、還是駕馭父母(還有她自己)的恐懼與焦慮……

在這些看似幽默風趣的個人故事中,隱藏著對於同時身為有色人種與女性的人生觀察:她外表的每一部份都可能受批評、訕笑或輕視。她以鋒利的筆觸指出,不管在西方文化或印度文化中,都存在著刻板的性別角色與規範,讓女性難以在婚姻與生兒育女之外,發展出屬於自己的事業與人生。作者以無比犀利的筆鋒,不僅寫出她如何在世界裡找到屬於自己的一席之地,分享人生的恐懼、憤怒與羞恥,更誠實而客觀地解析各種文化現象。

A DEBUT COLLECTION OF FIERCE, FUNNY ESSAYS ABOUT GROWING UP THE DAUGHTER OF INDIAN IMMIGRANTS IN WESTERN CULTURE, ADDRESSING SEXISM, STEREOTYPES, AND THE UNIVERSAL MISERIES OF LIFE

In One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter, Scaachi Koul deploys her razor-sharp humor to share all the fears, outrages, and mortifying moments of her life. She learned from an early age what made her miserable, and for Scaachi anything can be cause for despair. Whether it’s a shopping trip gone awry; enduring awkward conversations with her bikini waxer; overcoming her fear of flying while vacationing halfway around the world; dealing with Internet
trolls, or navigating the fears and anxieties of her parents. Alongside these personal stories are pointed observations about life as a woman of color: where every aspect of her appearance is open for critique, derision, or outright scorn; where strict gender rules bind in both Western and Indian cultures, leaving little room for a woman not solely focused on marriage and children to have a career (and a life) for herself.

With a sharp eye and biting wit, incomparable rising star and cultural observer Scaachi Koul offers a hilarious, scathing, and honest look at modern life.
