世事何曾是絕對〡Perfect Hostage

粗話小說可以係文學經典?小眾其實唔係少數?世事並非只得黑與白,點會咁易畀你看得透?

對自己好啲,無論工作日程幾密集,每日留少少時間睇書,在浩瀚的知識汪洋中,學懂欣賞、接納,和謙卑。今期「書店快樂」新上架:

.

《麥田捕手》在成為經典之前,曾遭兩次退稿。沙林傑筆下那個滿口粗話的叛逆少年,面對虛偽與崩壞的成人世界,用冷漠疏離保護不想改變的自己,引發一代復一代年輕人共鳴,全球總銷量逾6千5百萬冊。另一經典反烏托邦小說《蒼蠅王》更曾被退稿21次,作者威廉.高汀後來獲頒諾貝爾文學獎。其想像力與原創性,為普及文化如電影、音樂、漫畫等帶來豐富養份,亦開啟了「逃殺小說」類型。

.

人們如果只看事物表象,很容易看不清真相,弄錯原因擔錯心,找不到解決方法。《世界既簡單又複雜》以日常例子說明科學新概念「複雜學」,重新定義看待事業、家庭、藝術以至社會的法則。電影《阿波羅13》原著作者執筆,引人入勝。網絡年代令行銷進入全新生態系統,主流市場逐漸萎縮,能精確找出要接觸的小眾,乃致勝之道。《小眾, 其實不小》作者集學者、趨勢觀察家及廣告人於一身,觀點值得參考。

.

人人生而平等,無論所屬圈子是大眾,或小眾。《大愛同誌》雲集同志及同志友善的作家、插畫家及攝影師,為香港社會留下多元共融的聲音。李碧華名作《霸王別姬》寫乾旦程蝶衣的執迷與跌宕,令人低迴不已。人間不意又四月,今天重看,幾許滄桑。

.

此外還有陶國璋哲學著作《思考的盲點》、昂山素姬傳記 Perfect Hostage 及劉以鬯經典小說《對倒》,嚟「書店快樂」逛下啦:https://www.read-cycling.org/book-shopping ,直接上「蒲書館」買亦可,逢周四至六1-6pm開放。

.

所有書籍均以原價約三成出售,可以信用卡、PayPal或現金付款,結帳後即可預約取書,或選擇順豐快運送抵指定地點。


========================

Burma is a country where, as one senior UN official puts it, “just to turn your head can mean imprisonment or death.” Burma is once again under close scrutiny of the world. Perfect Hostage, the biography of Aung San Suu Kyi, is a timely read to understand the country's unsettling history, which may shed some light on what's happening now.
