可爱的骨头 | The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

当我们失去至亲之人,要如何与他们好好告别。全球销量500万,彼得·杰克逊执导同名电影小说原著,奥普拉读书俱乐部评选“15年来最好的15本书之一”。

我叫苏茜。十四岁那年,我被谋杀了。

我被困在完美的天堂里,眼睁睁看着家人在痛苦中迷失,又渐渐地开始忘记。我知道凶手是谁,却无法传达,只能任他逍遥法外。

我当然希望爸爸能彻夜守候,直到永远;但我也希望他放手,让我就此成为过去。

我死之后,他们所经历的一切就像绵延伸展的可爱的骨头,把大家紧密联结在一起。

我终于开始认清,没有我,他们依然可以活得很好,犹如身体中的骨骼,尽管有时会有缺失,但在不可知的未来终将长出新的骨干,重新变得圆满完美。

这是一场漫长的告别。等到说再见的那天,我将吹熄蜡烛,转身离去……

The Lovely Bones is the story of a family devastated by a gruesome murder -- a murder recounted by the teenage victim. Upsetting, you say? Remarkably, first-time novelist Alice Sebold takes this difficult material and delivers a compelling and accomplished exploration of a fractured family's need for peace and closure.

The details of the crime are laid out in the first few pages: from her vantage point in heaven, Susie Salmon describes how she was confronted by the murderer one December afternoon on her way home from school. Lured into an underground hiding place, she was raped and killed. But what the reader knows, her family does not. Anxiously, we keep vigil with Susie, aching for her grieving family, desperate for the killer to be found and punished.

Sebold creates a heaven that's calm and comforting, a place whose residents can have whatever they enjoyed when they were alive -- and then some. But Susie isn't ready to release her hold on life just yet, and she intensely watches her family and friends as they struggle to cope with a reality in which she is no longer a part. To her great credit, Sebold has shaped one of the most loving and sympathetic fathers in contemporary literature.
