American Pastoral (Mandarin Edition)

American Pastoral (Mandarin Edition)

《美国牧歌》

It is an elegy for all our century's promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father's glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him.

“美国三部曲”之首的《美国牧歌》,体现了美国社会中由来已久的冲突:相信“美国梦”的人,以为只要努力和正派,就可美梦成真;然而历史的悲剧性常常和个人是否努力和正派无关。
