奇幻山谷 | The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan

A sweeping, evocative epic of two women's intertwined fates and their search for identity, that moves from the lavish parlors of Shanghai courtesans to the fog-shrouded mountains of a remote Chinese village.

Spanning more than forty years and two continents, The Valley of Amazement resurrects pivotal episodes in history: from the collapse of China's last imperial dynasty, to the rise of the Republic, the explosive growth of lucrative foreign trade and anti-foreign sentiment, to the inner workings of courtesan houses and the lives of the foreign "Shanghailanders" living in the International Settlement, both erased by World War II.

A deeply evocative narrative about the profound connections between mothers and daughters, The Valley of Amazement returns readers to the compelling territory of Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club. With her characteristic insight and humor, she conjures a story of inherited trauma, desire and deception, and the power and stubbornness of love.

《奇幻山谷》(The Valley of Amazement)是美国华裔女作家谭恩美于2013年出版的最新作品。中美混血的薇奥莱自幼在母亲开在上海滩的高级妓院中长大,生性敏感叛逆。

十四岁那年,在回美国前夕,薇奥莱被坏人拐卖,自此与母亲失散,沦落风尘。之后的二十年里,她历经苦难,眼看爱人死于流感,女儿被人掳走,她自己也受人蒙蔽,身陷偏远山村险些丧命。但在父辈奇妙画作的指引下,在对自我内心的不断反省和坚持中,命运开始渐渐露出曙光。三代人,两对母女终于跨越大洋两岸聚在一起。

本书延续了谭恩美一贯的东方元素、母女冲突、身份认同,以及女性自我成长的主题。故事情节一如既往地紧凑、激烈,风格瑰丽、色彩浓郁,如同书中所引用的比尔施塔特的画作一般,奇秀的景色笼罩着魔幻的光影。
