接骨师之女 | The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan

Ruth Young and her widowed mother, LuLing, have always had a tumultuous relationship. Now, before she succumbs to forgetfulness, LuLing gives Ruth some of her writings, which reveal a side of LuLing that Ruth has never known. . . .

In a remote mountain village where ghosts and tradition rule, LuLing grows up in the care of her mute Precious Auntie as the family endures a curse laid upon a relative known as the bonesetter. When headstrong LuLing rejects the marriage proposal of the coffinmaker, a shocking series of events are set in motion–all of which lead back to Ruth and LuLing in modern San Francisco. The truth that Ruth learns from her mother’s past will forever change her perception of family, love, and forgiveness.

《接骨师之女》是美国华裔女作家谭恩美的代表作之一,写于2001年。小说创作期间作者的母亲和编辑先后辞世,受此影响,该作带有很深的个人色彩。

小说共讲述了两对母女、三代人横跨大洋两岸的故事。露丝是一名面临中年危机的代笔写手,她个性柔弱、隐忍,对工作、生活、伴侣的不满与不平让她渐渐迷失自我,并且束手无策。

一日,露丝带母亲体检时,发现母亲患有老年痴呆症,愧疚之余,她搬回家照顾母亲,并尝试去解读一直被她忽略的母亲的手稿。通过手稿,她逐渐了解了母亲坎坷多舛的人生,以及发生在外婆身上的惨烈故事,渐渐开始理解母亲的痛楚与深情,并开始反思自己年少无知时犯下的错误,母女二人终于和解。在照顾母亲的过程中,露丝也逐渐理清了自己的困惑,走出中年危机,开始了新的生活。
