Magazine - 热点西安
Written by Darth Pau
偶然于书店闲逛,看见落于书架一隅的这薄薄的一本纯小说,装帧甚是可爱,honeydew ,lightsalmon ,navajowhite ,yellow 四色排列有致的四层书封很是少见,再加上“2007年芥川奖受赏”的名头,于是毫不犹豫地买了下来。

对芥川奖的印象还停留在芥川龙之介本人的身上,惯性思维的作祟,以为摘得桂冠的必定是和其犀利,睿智,发人深省等特质相一致的作品,没想到,如今手上的这本犹如少女漫画绘本的作品也可登次荣膺,不禁感慨,时代变了。

书很薄,大概花了两个小时就看完了。散文,略带意识流的文风将一个发生在一年期间,经历了春夏秋冬的20岁出头女青年(“少女”“女孩”这类词这回还是不用了罢...)与舅姥姥生活在东京都的日常生活中的点点滴滴记录了下来。语言淳朴,清淡,将两人因年龄差别而反映出不同的人生态度描写的生动有趣。因为作者属于80后生人,再加上近几年中国经济的腾飞,人们思想的解放,两国文化交流的频繁,同是80后的我们,在思想层面上,可以说是非常的接近,很轻易的就能明白作者那第一人称叙事的弦外之音,但也如小说的主人公那样,对未来的未来,我们还是充满着迷茫。于是,舅姥姥这个人物的设立,可以说是像一座灯塔,光芒射进了我们心中的迷雾。

在文中我们可以看到很多这种“刻意的”比较,舅姥姥以学跳舞之名,大搞黄昏恋(年龄71岁),而主人公则是自以为“青涩的”在一段又一段的感情中周旋 ; 舅姥姥穿上孕妇装沉溺于幻想,而主人公连和喜欢的人在一起的小愿望都得不到满足;舅姥姥偷用“我”那昂贵的护肤化妆水,而“我”则是“故意”似的在家里穿吊带,热裤肆无忌惮;舅姥姥将自己曾经养过的猫的遗像挂了一屋子,而主人公却有顺手牵羊他人物品,积攒收集的怪癖;主人公想把所有的不快都统统抛弃,享受幸福,而舅姥姥则说,摒弃悲伤,到老的时候就会怕死了;主人公害怕自己独立于外面的世界会堕落下去,而舅姥姥则说,世界只有一个... ...总的再说,

年轻人追求幸福本无可厚非,但因为社会享受主义思潮的影响,使得其感情变成一段接一段的廉价聚餐,最后结果就是男性和女性指责对方对自己的疏忽进而分手,其实,感情并没有变淡,只是内心的欲望膨胀,想要得到更多,来填补自己的社会角色(工作等)所损失掉的精力。于是舅姥姥说“年轻人总是想不断的索取自己想要的东西,但到了我这个年纪,就没有那么多的想法了...”于是“欲求不满”的“我”不止一次的想要结束自己的生命(连常年单身的母亲都要再婚了...),因为“前方一片黑暗”,但年迈的舅姥姥却是不服输似的,将自己打扮得漂漂亮亮,出去约会,“我们老年人的爱情,和你们是不一样的...”

结尾,又是一年春来到,主人公和一个有妇之夫展开了所谓的“不伦之恋”,显然主人公经过一年的历练还是没有长大,但是,年轻总是一件好事,谁也说不定未来会怎么样,该明白的,终究还是会明白。

看到最后一页,我想到了“颐和园”这部电影中的余虹,在精神状态和经历上,和书中的主人公还是蛮像的,但是,遗憾的是,余虹没有这样的一位“舅姥姥”充当人生的灯塔,也许,她会成为再下一辈人的灯塔也说不定,成为另一个“舅姥姥”,让自己的不幸,不要再发生在其他人身上,自己吃过的苦,后人也不要再吃。但从另一方面来讲,跌倒了再爬起来,更能锻炼人的意志吧。年轻的朋友,自己选择吧。

主人公的名字叫“知寿”,意思是“靠自己的知识得到长寿的生活”,作为目前阶段的箴言,送给各位朋友吧。
