    AMERICAN GENIUS: A COMEDY

    Book ID/图书代码: 07633018C00351

    English Summary/英文概要: Lynne Tillman’s previous novels have won her both popular approval and critical praise from such literary heavyweights as Edmund White and Colm Tóibín. With American Genius, her first novel since 1998’s No Lease on Life, she shows what might happen if Jane Austen were writing in 21st-century America. Employing her trademark crystalline prose and intricate, hypnotic sentences, Tillman fashions a microcosm of American democracy: a scholarly colony functioning like Melville’s Pequod. In this otherworld, competing values — rationality and irrationality, generosity and selfishness, love and lust, shame and honor — collide through a witty narrative, cycling through such disparate tropes as skin disease, chair design, and Manifest Destiny. All this is folded into the narrator’s memories and emotional life, culminating in a séance that may offer escape and transcendence — or perhaps nothing. Grand and minute, elegiac and hilarious, Lynne Tillman expands the possibilities of the American novel in this dazzling read.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 琳恩•蒂尔曼的前几部小说既赢得了大众的认可,也获得了埃德蒙•怀特和科尔姆•托宾等文学巨酱的赞誉。自1998年第一部小说《纽约女人夜未眠》之后,在《美国天才》中她设想了如果简•奥斯汀在21世纪的美国写作将会发生什么。蒂尔曼运用她那标志性的水晶般透明风格的的散文和错综复杂、摄人心魄的句子,塑造了一个美国民主的缩影:一个像梅尔维尔笔下的裴廓德号(Pequod)那样运转的学术殖民地。在另一个世界里,作者用诙谐的语调叙述了各种相互竞争的价值观——理性与非理性、慷慨与自私、爱与欲望、羞耻与荣誉——之间的相互碰撞;并将它们比喻成皮肤病、座椅设计和天命等,描绘了彼此间的循环往复。所有的一切都融入了叙述者的记忆和情感生活,最终在一场能够提供逃避和超越、或者什么都无法提供的降神会达到高潮。在这本令人眼花缭乱的作品中,林恩•蒂尔曼用悲歌和欢声笑语将美国小说的可能性进行了拓展。(XMM)
