内容简介

The Corrections is a 2001 novel by American author Jonathan Franzen. It revolves around the troubles of an elderly Midwestern couple and their three adult children, tracing their lives from the mid-twentieth century to "one last Christmas" together near the turn of the millennium.

Plot summary

Alfred Lambert, the patriarch of a seemingly normal family living in the fictional town of St. Jude, suffers from Parkinson's disease and dementia. Enid, his long-suffering wife, suffers from Alfred's controlling, rigid behavior and her own embarrassment at what she perceives as her family's shortcomings. Their children all live in the Northeast. Gary, the eldest Lambert son, is a successful banker who refuses to believe that he has clinical depression, and, as a result, becomes increasingly paranoid, suspecting that his wife and sons are conspiring against him. Chip, the middle child, is a failed college professor whose disastrous affair with a student sends his life into decline and lands him in the employ of a Lithuanian crime boss. Denise, the youngest of the family, is successful in her career as a chef. Circumstances lead her to become involved with her boss's wife.

《纠正》以一个美国小镇为中心,叙述了一对美国老年夫妇伊妮德和艾尔弗雷德在城郊的生活及三个孩子各自在准备回家团聚并面对各自生活中的“纠正”时的情景,但它要反映的并不仅仅是美国家庭,而是美国自身,美国的资本主义、物质主义、乐观主义、理想主义。小说从上世纪中叶的美国中西部一直写到今天的华尔街和东欧,时而滑稽,时而刻薄,时而令人心酸,多侧面地描摹了美国文化,为人们打开了一扇探视美国人心灵的窗口。

 乔纳森·弗兰岑(1959— ) 美国小说家兼散文作家,著有《第二十七座城市》、《有力的手势》、《不舒适地带:个人史》等作品,被评论界誉为最出色的美国小说家之一。《纠正》获 2001年美国全国图书奖,并获2001年美国全国书评家协会奖和2002年美国普利策奖的提名,被评为亚马逊网站2001年度最佳小说。有评论说,《纠正》是一部久违了的美国小说巨著,弗兰岑凭此可步入美国文学大师之列。他自由地居于美国文坛传统的讲故事者和先锋的创新实验作家之间,独具特色。他的作品比实验小说易读,又比热衷于讲故事的小说在形式和内容上都更具当代气息和思想深度。
