Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang

PS3565.A8 F69 1994
Joyce Carol Oates Legs squinted up at the sky, the moon so bright you’d never think it could be merely rock like the earth’s common rock and lifeless, merely reflected light from an invisible sun and not a powerful living light of its own.” (1) 1
The Great Gatsby

PS 3511.I9G7 1953
F. Scott Fitzgerald In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 classic novel, New York isn’t just the setting; it’s a character. Narrated by Yale graduate Nick Carraway, the novel, set in and around Long Island, explores the unsettled relationship between the mysterious, self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby and the love of his life, Daisy Buchanan while examining the class differences between the haves and have-nots. The Great Gatsby is one of these 14 books you really should have read by now. (3) 3

Daddy Was a Number Runner

PS3563.E738 D3 2002
Louise Meriwether “Lord, but that hallway was funky, all of those Harlem smells bumping together… The air outside wasn't much better. It was a hot, stifling day, June 2, 1934. The curbs were lined with garbage cans overflowing into the gutters, and a droopy horse pulling a vegetable cart down the avenue had just deposited a steaming pile of manure in the middle of the street. The sudden heat had emptied the tenements. Kids too young for school played on the sidewalks while their mamas leaned out of their windows searching for a cool breeze or sat for a moment on the fire escape.” (1) 1
鹽的代價

874.5754/8284.1-3 105
Patricia Highsmith 年輕、孤單的特芮絲在大都會紐約裡尋找劇場事業的開端,卻被困在一個百貨公司裡面當售貨小姐;同樣的,儘管身邊有著對她死心踏地的男友,她卻感到這份愛虛弱得可有可無,隨時可以揚棄……

直到聖誕節前,特芮絲在百貨公司遇見了卡蘿——金髮高挑、正在為女兒挑選禮物的少婦——特芮絲的心像是被什麼觸動了,想要認識卡蘿的慾望無法遏抑,於是她寄了一張卡片出去;而卡蘿同樣出自難以形容的感動,與特芮絲相約見面,從此發展出讓她們自己都驚訝的關係:兩人終於明白,自己找到了真愛。

特芮絲的男朋友斷言她只是一時頭昏,而卡蘿的丈夫則請了私家偵探,蒐集妻子不適為人母的證據——她愛的是女人而非男人——想在離婚官司中取得女兒的監護權。

特芮絲與卡蘿毅然決定離開紐約,僅在彼此的陪伴下展開一趟公路之旅:旅程中,年輕的特芮絲經歷了所有戀人會面臨的考驗,從熱情、希望,到嫉妒、懷疑、困惑與絕望……當卡蘿不得不隻身回返紐約,並在法官的要求下暫停與特芮絲見面——難道嘗過了鹽之後,她們還能安於平淡無味嗎?(博客來)
