闪小说的始作俑者Lydia_Davis最新一本小说Can't and Won't里收集的小说字数好像挺多的。所谓闪小说,就是惜字如金,篇幅短小,女性视角。我翻译了一篇给大家看看。

The Problem of the Vacuum Cleaner
A priest is about to come visit us — or maybe it is two priests.
But the maid has left the vacuum cleaner in the hall, directly in front of the front door.
I have asked her twice to take it away, but she will not.
I certainly will not.
One of the priests, I know, is the Rector of Patagonia.

吸尘器的问题
一位牧师要来拜访我们——也可能会来两位。
保姆将吸尘器放在大厅里,正好挡在门口。
我跟她说了两次要她把吸尘器拿走,她就是不肯。
我肯定不愿意动手。
两位牧师中,我知道,有一位是教区长。

这个封面好潮啊。幸亏写了个(stories),小说。要不然,恐怕没有人知道这样一个封面里面写的都是啥。
