Their Eyes Were Watching God

PS 3515.U789T639 1990
Zora Neale Hurston "She was stretched on her back beneath the pear tree soaking in the alto chant of the visiting bees, the gold of the sun and the panting breath of the breeze when the inaudible voice of it all came to her. She saw a dust-bearing bee sink into the sanctum of a bloom; the thousand sister-calyxes arch to meet the love embrace and the ecstatic shiver of the tree from root to tiniest branch creaming in every blossom and frothing with delight." (1)

This 1937 novel by Zora Neale Hurston tells the story of Janie Crawford's transformation from a quiet, disadvantaged teenage African-American girl into a woman who is in charge of her own destiny. While the novel was not well received when it was first published, today it is regarded as a critical piece of African-American literature, particularly because of its themes of race, gender, love, jealous and fate versus free will.

Swamplandia!

PS 3618.U755S93 2011
Karen Russell While many American novels deal with the clash of different personalities and peoples, novels that deal with the isolation of families and people describe the multifaceted American experience just as powerfully. Swamplandia! tells the story of family in Florida’s 10,000 islands region struggling to maintain their alligator-themed amusement park while the isolation from the rest of the world takes its toll on both the three children and their father.

沼澤新樂園

874.577 /853.32
Karen Russell 主題樂園的熱鬧記憶,已隨濕熱海風越飄越遠,
腦海中的節目表,卻仍在每個整點,準時開演……

大樹家族歷代經營名叫「沼澤新樂園」鱷魚主題樂園,曾經繁榮一時,可是自從鱷魚摔角手母親去世之後便好景不再,生意更在附近又開設更現代化的遊樂場「黑暗世界」後一落千丈。

愛娃是家中的野丫頭,從小夢想成為和媽媽一樣厲害的鱷魚摔角手,可是她失憶的外公被送去安養院、夢想改造樂園的老爸「酋長」負債累累不告而別、從小靠函授課程自學的天才哥哥隻身外出闖蕩、姐姐小熙則沉迷通靈術的魔法書,與死去的少年談起陰陽戀。眼看家庭分崩離析,愛娃該何去何從?

一個寂寞少女的成長故事,一個怪胎家族的凋零記錄,
全書充滿沼澤與海洋的濕熱氛圍、舊世界與新文明的衝撞,
對環境和生態的省思,魔幻、誇張、爆笑卻又非常感傷。(博客來)
