About The Book

《当我们谈论爱情时我们在谈论什么》

In his second collection of stories, as in his first, Carver's characters are peripheral people--people without education, insight or prospects, people too unimaginative to even give up. Carver celebrates these men and women.

《当我们谈论爱情时我们在谈论什么》是雷蒙德·卡佛优秀的短篇小说集,由17篇短篇小说组成。讲述了如餐馆女招待、锯木厂工人、修车工、推销员和汽车旅馆管理员等社会底层的体力劳动者的生活。这些普通人有着普通人的愿望,做着再普通不过的事情,但他们发现自己在为生存而挣扎,无法达到在常人看来并不远大的人生目标。他们的生活中充满了窘困和不如意,婚姻破裂,失业,酗酒,破产。卡佛用“极简”的遣词、冷静疏离的叙事,表现了现代社会中人的边缘性以及现代人脆弱的自我意识。本书的出版,为美国短篇小说写作注入了新的生命,并为卡佛赢得了“美国的契诃夫”的称号,使他成为美国继海明威之后受到模仿最多的作家。
