Norwegian Wood

村上春树 Haruki Murakami
挪威的森林(Norwegian Wood)简介:
In a complete stylistic departure from his mysterious and surreal novels (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle; A Wild Sheep Chase) that show the influences of Salinger, Fitzgerald and Tom Robbins, Murakami tells a bittersweet coming-of-age story, reminiscent of J.R. Salamanca's classic 1964 novel, LilithAthe tale of a young man's involvement with a schizophrenic girl. A successful, 37-year-old businessman, Toru Watanabe, hears a version of the Beatles' Norwegian Wood, and the music transports him back 18 years to his college days. His best friend, Kizuki, inexplicably commits suicide, after which Toru becomes first enamored, then involved with Kizuki's girlfriend, Naoko. But Naoko is a very troubled young woman; her brilliant older sister has also committed suicide, and though sweet and desperate for happiness, she often becomes untethered. She eventually enters a convalescent home for disturbed people, and when Toru visits her, he meets her roommate, an older musician named Reiko, who's had a long history of mental instability. The three become fast friends. Toru makes a commitment to Naoko, but back at college he encounters Midori, a vibrant, outgoing young woman. As he falls in love with her, Toru realizes he cannot continue his relationship with Naoko, whose sanity is fast deteriorating. Though the solution to his problem comes too easily, Murakami tells a subtle, charming, profound and very sexy story of young love bound for tragedy. Published in Japan in 1987, this novel proved a wild success there, selling four million copies.  《挪威的森林》的作者村上春树几乎囊括了日本所有的文学奖项,在日本销售了700多万册,现已被译成多种文字在世界流行。可以说,小说情节是平平的,笔调是缓缓的,语气是淡淡的,然而字里行间却鼓涌着一股无可抑制的冲击波,激起读者强烈的心灵震颤与共鸣。小说想向我们倾诉什么呢,生与死,死与性,性与爱,坦率与真诚,一时竟很难回答。读罢掩卷,只是觉得整个身心都浸泡在漫无边际的冰水里,奔波于风雪交加的旅途中,又好像感受着暴风雨过后的沉寂、大醉初醒生的虚脱……
