♥ Book Title : Girl by the Road at Night
☯ Full Synopsis : "David Rabe’s award-winning Vietnam plays have come to embody our collective fears, doubts, and tenuous grasp of a war that continues to haunt. Partially written upon his return from the war, Girl by the Road at Night is Rabe’s first work of fiction set in Vietnam—a spare and poetic narrative about a young soldier embarking on a tour of duty and the Vietnamese prostitute he meets in country. Private Joseph Whitaker, with Vietnam deployment papers in hand, spends his last free weekend in Washington, DC, drinking, attending a peace rally, and visiting an old girlfriend, now married. He observes his surroundings closely, attempting to find reason in an atmosphere of hysteria and protest, heightened by his own anger. When he arrives in Vietnam, he happens upon Lan, a local girl who submits nightly to the American GIs with a heartbreaking combination of decency and guile. Her family dispersed and her father dead, she longs for a time when life meant riding in water buffalo carts through rice fields with her brother. Whitaker’s chance encounter with Lan sparks an unexpected, almost unrecognized, visceral longing between two people searching for companionship and tenderness amid the chaos around them. In transformative prose, Rabe has created an atmosphere charged with exquisite poignancy and recreated the surreal netherworld of Vietnam in wartime with unforgettable urgency and grace. Girl by the Road at Night is a brilliant meditation on disillusionment, sexuality, and masculinity, and one of Rabe’s finest works to date."Article| David Rabe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Road Girl. A Story
☯ Full Synopsis : "Kalifornien 1962. Juni Shimata ist neun Jahre alt. Marilyn Monroe ist gerade gestorben, die Kubaner und die Russen kommen. Eine schräge Welt von schönem Schein. „Benimm dich! Sei artig!" Aber Junis Albträume kommen viel eher von zu Hause: Scheidung, Rassismus, Missbrauch ... Das aufgeweckte Mädchen beginnt erst, das Leben kennenzulernen, und es kämpft mit aller Kraft, sich darauf einen Reim zu machen. In einer Reihe von Bildern – wie alte, zufällig auf dem Speicher gefundene Filmrollen – zeigt „Road Girl“, wie die Dreikäsehoch-Hauptfigur ihre Phantasie benutzt, um mit einer Welt fertig zu werden, die sie nicht gerade mit offenen Armen empfängt – ihr Vater aber schon. California, 1962. Juni Shimata is nine years old. Marilyn Monroe just died, the Cubans and the Russians are coming. A topsy-turvy world of glamor, hypocrisy, and rules. But the bogies threatening little Juni are much closer to home. Divorce, racial discrimination, abuse. Bright-minded Juni is just becoming aware of life and struggling to fit two and two together. In a series of tableaux, like random reels of old home movies found in the attic, "Road Girl" shows how the pintsized protagonist uses her fantasy to cope with a world that isn't ready to make room for her, and a father who is. Californie, 1962. Juni Shimata a neuf ans. Marilyn Monroe vient de mourir, les Cubains et le Russes arrivent. Un monde sens dessus-dessous, plein de glamour, d’hypocrisie et de règles. Mais, les cauchemars qui menacent Juni sont plus proches de la maison : divorce, discrimination raciale, maltraitance. Avec toute sa petite tête, Juni s’éveille à la vie et se bat pour en comprendre le sens. Dans une série de tableaux, comme des bobines de vieux films trouvés au hasard dans le grenier, « Road Girl » montre comment la protagoniste, haute comme trois pommes, utilise sa fantaisie pour affronter un monde qui ne veut pas vraiment lui accorder une place – même si son père lui en accorde trop."Article| Vanessa Araya| Statement ..."
