I wish - I wish instead of just recommending these books, I could set them down at your doorstep. The collected stories of John Updike, the second volume of T.C. Boyle's collected stories, and Stanley Crouch's book about the rise and times of our genius saxophone player Charlie Parker. These are deep books, books that you can get lost in.

我希望-我不只是推荐这些书,我可以把它们放在你家门口。约翰·厄普代克的故事集,T.C.博伊尔的故事集的第二卷,以及斯坦利·克劳奇关于我们的天才萨克斯管演奏家查理·帕克的崛起和时代的书。这些都是深奥的书,你会迷路的书。

Sad to think that we won't have any new stories from John Updike, one of the last century's masters. But so many here in the two volumes of his collected stories, 186 by my count, stories to read, reread, savor over the course of a cold season. Updike's genius in the short form spills out of these many, many pages.

想到上个世纪的大师之一约翰·厄普代克(John Updike)不会有任何新的故事,我们很难过。但在他收集的两卷小说中,有那么多,我数了数,186篇,在寒冷的季节里,要读,要重读,要细细品味的故事。厄普代克的天才以简短的形式从这许多许多页中流露出来。

From sublime affairs of state to the stark and vulgar popular culture of our own contemporary lives, let's make this descent into the lower registers together and recognize the good, nasty fun of 'Gone Girl,' Chicago writer Gillian Flynn's novel about the mysterious disappearance of a clever and deceptive young Midwestern housewife.

从崇高的国家大事到我们当代生活中刻板低俗的大众文化,让我们一起来认识一下芝加哥作家吉利安·弗林的小说《消失的女孩》中的好的、下流的乐趣,这部小说讲述了一个聪明的、欺骗性的年轻中西部家庭主妇神秘失踪的故事。
