  • 等闲女人的旧事 第一部 亲情

    by 南海北海
    年少时就有写作的冲动,不过多半都是凑凑字数或者是“为赋新词强说愁”,没有内核和灵魂。而今虽然没有秋鬓霜白,但早已在客舟听过雨,也多次静立在僧庐下感受点滴到天明的孤寂。人到了一定的年纪,就会不自禁地慨叹人生如朝露,对衰颜酒红的悲凉也难免惶恐不安,所以终于沉下心来创作了长篇小说《等闲女人的旧事》。小说是三部曲,三本书的内容前后相连,每一本也可以独立成书。当然,每本书有不同的侧重点,三部曲的名字分别是:第一部《亲情》;第二部《爱情》;第三部《异乡》。 第一部共57章,约19万字。第一章“生日”,第五十七章“没有离愁的别绪——旅途”。第二部共88章,约27万字。第一章“海口”,第八十八章“故园东望路漫漫”。第三部共103章,约34万字。第一章“温哥华”,第103章“他乡还是故乡”。 全书约80万字,以时间为经线,通过空间的转换,刻画了几个普通女人的心路历程,情感变化,同时展示了时代和社会的变迁。本书的时空跨度都比较大,惟其如此,才能展示出更真实的状态。书中对自然景观和人文环境都有不同程度的描绘,如果对旅游感兴趣,也可以作为闲书翻一下。全书试图以小见大,涉及更广博的内容,也许心有余而... more
