夏尔曼•克雷格《缅甸小姐》

Charmaine Craig, Miss Burma
夏尔曼•克雷格《缅甸小姐》

 

 

When Louisa takes the stage to compete in the Miss Burma competition in the mid-1950s, it's not immediately evident how complicated her lineage is. Her Jewish father Benny was serving as a British customs officer in 1939 when he first spotted her mother Khim, a member of the Karen ethnic minority persecuted for centuries by the Bamar majority. When the Japanese occupied Burma during World War Two, the couple fled to the east to find shelter with Khim's Karen community. Benny is imprisoned, and Khim does what she must to survive. In 1948, after independence, they both support the Karen leaders in what evolves into a decades-long civil war. Craig draws from her own family history for this riveting account of the treacheries, fractures, and courageous acts of wartime. (Credit: Grove Press)
上世纪50年代中期,当路易莎站在舞台上竞选缅甸小姐时,并没有马上发现她的血统有多么复杂。她的犹太人父亲是一名英国海关官员,1939年,父亲本尼第一次遇见母亲金。金是克伦族人,克伦族受缅甸主体民族缅族的迫害。二战期间日本占领缅甸时,这对夫妻和克伦族人逃往缅甸东部寻找避难之地。本尼被囚禁,金不得不想办法生存。1948年缅甸独立后,在长达数十年的内战中,这对夫妇都支持克伦族领导人。克雷格通过描写自己家族的历史,生动讲述了战争时期的背叛、分裂以英勇的故事。(来源:格罗夫出版社)
