📝The Opposite of Loneliness Book Synopsis : The instant New York Times bestseller and publishing phenomenon: Marina Keegan’s posthumous collection of award-winning essays and stories “sparkles with talent, humanity, and youth” (O, The Oprah Magazine). Marina Keegan’s star was on the rise when she graduated magna cum laude from Yale in May 2012. She had a play that was to be produced at the New York Fringe Festival and a job waiting for her at The New Yorker. Tragically, five days after graduation, Marina died in a car crash. Marina left behind a rich, deeply expansive trove of writing that, like her title essay, captures the hope, uncertainty, and possibility of her generation. Her short story “Cold Pastoral” was published on NewYorker.com. Her essay “Even Artichokes Have Doubts” was excerpted in the Financial Times, and her book was the focus of a Nicholas Kristof column in The New York Times. Millions of her contemporaries have responded to her work on social media. As Marina wrote: “We can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over…We’re so young. We can’t, we MUST not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.” The Opposite of Loneliness is an unforgettable collection of Marina’s essays and stories that articulates the universal struggle all of us face as we figure out what we aspire to be and how we can harness our talents to impact the world. “How do you mourn the loss of a fiery talent that was barely a tendril before it was snuffed out? Answer: Read this book. A clear-eyed observer of human nature, Keegan could take a clever idea...and make it something beautiful” (People).

📝The Opposite of Loneliness Enhanced Edition Book Synopsis : An affecting and hope-filled posthumous collection of essays and stories from the talented young Yale graduate whose title essay captured the world’s attention in 2012 and turned her into an icon for her generation. Marina Keegan’s star was on the rise when she graduated magna cum laude from Yale in May 2012. She had a play that was to be produced at the New York Fringe Festival and a job waiting for her at The New Yorker. Tragically, five days after graduation, Marina died in a car crash. As her family, friends, and classmates, deep in grief, joined to create a memorial service for Marina, her deeply affecting last essay for The Yale Daily News, “The Opposite of Loneliness,” went viral, receiving more than 1.4 million hits. Even though she was just twenty-two years old when she died, Marina left behind a rich, deeply expansive trove of prose that, like her title essay, capture the hope, uncertainty, and possibility of her generation. Her short story, “Cold Pastoral,” was published in NewYorker.com just months after her death. The Opposite of Loneliness is an assemblage of Marina’s essays and stories, which, like The Last Lecture, articulate the universal struggle that all of us face as we figure out what we aspire to be, and how we harness our talents to impact the world.

📝 Book Synopsis : 《紐約時報》、亞馬遜書店暢銷書 超過140萬人點閱、耶魯畢業生紅遍全球網路的最後演講 以精準文字探索人性最深處的孤寂,道出年輕世代的困惑與理想 知名作家王浩威、王聰威、朱宥勳、郝譽翔、孫梓評、蔡素芬、鍾怡雯深情推薦 「我們找不到一個詞來表達孤獨的相反意義。 如果有的話,我得說,那就是我此生所追求的; 那就是我衷心感激耶魯帶給我的感受, 也是我害怕明天一早醒來、畢業離開之後,即將失去的感受。」 才華洋溢的耶魯女大生,畢業後五天因意外驟逝 生前發表的最後一篇文章,吸引超過140萬人點閱 慧黠的文字詩意、大膽而力道十足 充分捕捉到年輕世代的希望、徬徨、孤寂、摸索與掙扎…… 耶魯大學畢業生瑪麗娜‧基根,立志用生命當一個真正的作家,年僅22歲,已在身後留下豐富的創作,《孤獨的反義詞》這本書集結了她的短篇故事及隨筆共18篇,道出各種人物及形式的孤獨:猝逝的曖昧情人、空巢期的父母、駐守伊拉克的軍官、暗藏刺青的老婦、失聯潛艇的船員、擱淺的鯨魚……等,全然不落俗套,篇篇撼動人心。 2012年5月,瑪麗娜以優異成績畢業,前途一片光明燦爛。她創作的音樂劇即將在紐約國際藝穗節上演,知名雜誌《紐約客》也有一份工作等著她赴任。不幸的是,畢業後五天,一場車禍驟然奪走了這個才華洋溢的年輕生命。瑪麗娜畢業前夕發表的最後一篇文章〈孤獨的反義詞〉,在網路上被熱烈分享轉載,不僅是因為文中洋溢的無限可能性與現實的對比過於令人震驚惋惜,更在於她說中了廣大同代人的心聲,宛如《最後的演講》(The Last Lecture):什麼才是屬於我的志向與夢想?如何善用自己的才能為世界帶來改變?瑪麗娜的生命永遠停駐在2012年,而她遺留給世人的文字,將讓人心頭無可迴避地重重一震。 ※ 得獎紀錄 入圍水石書店2014年度選書決選 《紐約時報》非小說暢銷榜#11 美國亞馬遜書店暢銷書 ※ 國外知名作家推薦 安‧法第曼(Anne Fadiman),美國國家書評獎得主、作家、耶魯大學寫作課講師 哈洛・卜倫(Harold Bloom),《西方正典》作者、著名文學教授暨評論家 J.

R.莫林格(J. R. Moehringer),普立茲獎得主,紐約時報暢銷書《溫柔酒吧》(The Tender Bar)作者 我永遠不會停止哀悼我所鍾愛的學生──瑪麗娜‧基根。瑪麗娜原本前途不可限量,本書就是部分證明,只可惜隨著她的逝去,這份希望也跟著殞落。綜觀全書,她展現了逼真且張力十足的敘事技巧。除此之外,她更對這一代人大聲疾呼:不要為了區區職場浪費了才華,應該把青春的尊嚴與活力投資於自我提升、改善這個紛紛擾擾的社會。 ——哈洛・卜倫(Harold Bloom),耶魯大學人文與英國文學教授,著名文學教授暨評論家,《西方正典》(The Western Canon)作者 說出每一個社會新鮮人的樂觀與精神症狀……在此千禧時代,反諷已晉升成了藝術型態;基根為這一代人的集體不安全感帶來覺醒,然而,她的精準描述,唯有同樣深處於不安全感的人才寫得出來。她永遠無法得知讀者從她的作品中得到的幫助,何其遺憾! ──《出版人周刊》

📝Prep Book Synopsis : Een ontroerend en hilarisch relaas van een kostschoolmeisje in een rijk en bevoorrecht milieu. Lee Fiora is veertien als haar vader haar voor de deur van de prestigieuze Ault-school afzet. Tot dat moment kende Lee de kostschool alleen uit de brochure, met foto's van jongens in sweaters en meisjes in geruite rokken die lacrosse spelen op keurig gemaaide sportvelden. Gaandeweg ontdekt Lee hoe de wereld van rijk en bevoorrecht Amerika eruitziet en raakt ze beurtelings aangetrokken en afgestoten door deze jongens en meisjes met hun eigen codes en mores. Haar relaas omsluit de pijnlijke maar opwindende weg naar volwassenheid. Prep is het humoristische, ontroerende, pijnlijk herkenbare en vooral universele verhaal van een tiener die vriendschap en waardering zoekt maar tegelijkertijd probeert haar identiteit en onafhankelijkheid te bewaren.

📝Letting Loose the Hounds Stories Book Synopsis : “Funny, unpredictable, and abounding with strange beauty . . . a fierce new voice of the American West.”—Outside Exploding with an unsettling exuberance, Brady Udall’s stories traverse a geography of lost love, fragmented lives, and satisfying revenge. From the night a six-foot-three Apache Indian holding a goat steps into a moonlit Arizona backyard in "Midnight Raid" to the pivotal moment when a man, delirious from a dental extraction, gets rescued by a stranger in the title story, Udall injects his stories and characters with equal parts darkness and humor. These are sad and sweet stories, moving from the familiar to surprising destinations. But even when disaster looms, Udall's fine comic sense sustains his men and women in their sometimes extravagant efforts to connect and cope. Plunged in the moment, these stories have velocity; they spray gravel as they take off.
