《於是我坐下,聽調酒師M說關於H城的傳說》出版一周年了,亦是後話文字工作室開業一周年的日子,後編和作者於是想,不如搞些甚麼慶祝一下吧!

有次譚以諾和唐睿一起吃飯,發現對方和自己原來在差不多的年代成長,所以他們一談就是幾小時,沒有停下來。H編聽得滿心歡喜,決定說服二人重製當日對談和讀者詳談一次。

怎樣的人寫怎樣的小說, 兩個年代背景相距不遠的小說創作者,在成長年代都或先或後看過《亂馬1/2》、浦澤直樹和古谷實,並且沉迷過《大航海時代》、《Final Fantasy》,這些流行文化甚至早於文學、電影和藝術進入他們的生命。究竟他們如何憑著電玩遊戲中高度模擬現實的虛構世界中,開闊了對真實世界的想像,在追求打爆機的路途上,培養出日後在閱讀和創作上的解難能力;又如何在發掘最新最潮的漫畫過程中,養成了不可思議的資料搜集癖?

他們兩個的長成記憶怎樣勾引你的注意呢?來聽聽兩位小說創作者一去不復返的青春成長故事吧!

In this Cha Reading Series event "Collective Memories", three Cha contributors, Michael O'Sullivan, Jennifer Wong and Xu Xi, will each introduce and read four excerpts of their choosing in response to the theme of the reading. How do we document collective memories in literature? What deserves to be remembered? Who's afraid of collective memories? Moderated by Cha's co-editor Tammy Ho Lai-Ming.

XU XI
A former Indonesian national, born and raised in Hong Kong, Xu Xi eventually morphed into a U.S. citizen at the age of 33, having washed onto that distant shore across from Lady Liberty. These days, she splits time between New York and Hong Kong. Xu XI is the author of twelve books, including five novels, five collections of short fiction & essays and most recently a memoir DEAR HONG KONG: AN ELEGY TO A CITY, released July 1, 2017 by Penguin as part of its Hong Kong series for the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to China. She is also editor of four anthologies of Hong Kong writing in English. Two new books are forthcoming—a short fiction collection INSIGNIFICANCE (Signal 8 Press, 2018) and an essay collection THIS FISH IS FOWL (Nebraska Univ. Press, 2019-20).

Cha Reading Series {http://bit.ly/2fnE9EE} takes the online journal out into the physical world. It brings together poets, writers, translators and artists who are in some way or other affiliated with Cha. Readings will take place in various impromptu locations across the city, in public and private rooms, lecture halls, on park benches, in front of billboards, next to a window scratched by tree branches. They will read their work informally or seriously. They will discuss issues, argue, debate and exchange. We also hope to form dialogue and explore specific pertinent topics that inspire or beset the contemporary world. Suggestions for future events can be sent to t@asiancha.com.

哲學家跟政治家有無分別?哲學應否為政治服務?政治的權力,謊言和鬥爭跟追求普遍真理的哲學,孰高孰低?這是自柏拉圖,二千年來西方政治思想傳統一直念茲在茲的問題。政治哲學的批判性,一方面是面向世界,另一方面亦是對自身的目的和方法論的反省, 這是學科有意識的自我批判。但如果哲學性著眼於真理和普遍性,政治性著眼於變化,敵友和抉擇,當中的調和如何可能呢?政治哲學應否理解成一個類,包含眾多不同形態,從哲學主導到政治主導的政治哲學?在今天香港,哲普似乎日漸常見,那麼我們對政治,對哲學,或者政治哲學作為一門學問的反省是否足夠呢?

基於上述的問題,我們特意揀選了兩篇當代的文章,Isaiah Berlin’s ‘Does political theory still exists?’ 和 Raymond Geuss’s Philosophy and Real Politics, ‘Introduction’, 與諸君一同思考這些既不朽又有時代性的問題。

真正的愛書人都會知道,書,要講緣份。能看到一本書,是緣份;能買到一本書是緣份;能把書放到架上,珍而重之,也是一種緣份。但很多人沒有發現,與書的緣份也有盡時。有很多書,被買了、看過了、收藏了,但之後就留在架上默默等待。等的是有人再打開它,讓它的生命與人連結,重新被閱讀,再次充實人、成就人。然而更多的時候,書都等得太久。

可有想過書也有自己的生命歷程?或許你書架上的書有更長的路要走,它將要被更多人發現,予人無盡的啟迪,就正如它曾使你感動一樣。那它所需要的,就是你最後的助緣。把它帶到序言吧!讓好書再上架,再續書的緣份,繼續走它的路!
