就在我写下J.M.Coetzee《衰年纪事》读后感之后三天,英国的泰晤士报文学增刊发表了一篇书评。书评写的很好,比我的详细,也不像我只着眼于介绍这本书,而是把Coetzee以前的作品也一并做了分析。

其中有一段跟我的分析简直如出一辙,呵呵。

His initials are JC; his first name is John, and like Coetzee he lefthis native South Africa some time ago to live in Australia, which iswhere the novel is set. His books are Coetzee’s books – Waiting for theBarbarians (1980) and the essay collection on censorship, GivingOffense (1996), are alluded to in passing. The temperature rises evenfurther when it turns out that JC, too, had a father whose name beganwith Z (for Zacharias) and that he was educated by the Marist Brothersin Cape Town, details which will be familiar to Coetzee’s readers fromBoyhood (1997). Can we take all this at face value? Is the guardedCoetzee really performing a striptease? Not only is this fictional JCeminent, there is also a hint that he has won the Nobel Prize, going bya tongue-in-cheek reference to a framed scroll on his bedroom wall “insome foreign language (Latin?) with his name in fancy lettering withlots of curlicues and a big red wax seal in the corner”. Swedish, notLatin, perhaps? But really – on the bedroom wall? If we care to look,there are other sly rufflings of the mirror’s surface: JC was born in1934, rather than 1940; unlike Coetzee he once had a sister rather thana brother; he is childless; he lives alone. Look again, and the mirrorcracks. Ceci n’est pas une pipe. JC is no more John Coetzee than wasElizabeth Costello. Now you see him, now you don’t: once again theauthor vanishes.
