奥斯卡·瓦奥短暂而奇妙的一生 | The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz

“没有哪个多米尼加人到死还是处男。”

这句话成为奥斯卡·瓦奥摆脱不掉的诅咒。他身材臃肿、性情抑郁,饱受冷落和讥笑,生活里只有《奥特曼》《星际旅行》和《神奇四侠》。他埋首纸堆,幻想成为多米尼加的J.R.R.托尔金一更重要的是,找个女朋友。

在特鲁希略时代,这个受到诅咒的家族为了保护女儿免受暴君摧残,家破人亡。时隔多年,尚未尝过初吻滋味的奥斯卡,在那个失意的夏天重返多米尼加,意外找到了爱情并赌誓为此一掷乾坤。

《奥斯卡·瓦奥短暂而奇妙的一生》为朱诺·迪亚斯的首部长篇小说,一举包揽全美书评家协会奖、美国普利策奖,迪亚斯本人亦成为史上首个拉美裔普利策奖评委。

Things have never been easy for Oscar, a sweet but disastrously overweight, lovesick Dominican ghetto nerd. From his home in New Jersey, where he lives with his old-world mother and rebellious sister, Oscar dreams of becoming the Dominican J. R. R. Tolkien and, most of all, of finding love. But he may never get what he wants, thanks to the Fuk?—the curse that has haunted the Oscar's family for generations, dooming them to prison, torture, tragic accidents, and, above all, ill-starred love. Oscar, still waiting for his first kiss, is just its most recent victim.

Diaz immerses us in the tumultuous life of Oscar and the history of the family at large, rendering with genuine warmth and dazzling energy, humor, and insight the Dominican-American experience, and, ultimately, the endless human capacity to persevere in the face of heartbreak and loss. A true literary triumph, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao confirms Junot Diaz as one of the best and most exciting voices of our time.
