Youth said | 2021, we have these youth literature

湃 新 记 昕


2021 graduated into an end. This year, we launched the “Youth Said” column, especially focused on “80” and “90” and “90”. They have a growing process and rich multiculturalism, they are independent, romantic, romantic, stubborn, and mutual appreciation. In a rapidly changing modern life, they open their hearts and touched the world with literature.


For this year’s literary publishing, we can see a lot of surprising young new doctors: Lin Wei brought her second minister “tidal map”, Yang Wei took a “back: Looking for the Southwest Union, “Learning the New” Looking Forward “, Li Jingrui published his own history novel” Shen Yuntang “, Sun Yi Sheng will integrate the estate and sedimentation into the second novel set “Night Games”, the “Qingge” broke the dull village writing “Original, either ruins”, Guo Shuang tried to find the “moon” to find modern people “the prove to exist” … through the first year of the year, we Trying to revisit this year he / their literature picture.

Time and space story, border secret


The “tidal picture” at the end of this year will soon caught the hot discussion in the circle, the opening of the discussion is simple: “Do you think” Tid “is good?” The “good-looking” here may have two things, one is Text is wonderful, one is to read difficulty. Since the novel (especially the beginning) uses a lot of Cantonese dialects, there is a view that “tidal pictures” reading obstacles, but there are also some diarses of Chen, and they are constant, and they are quite charming parts of this novel. . In any case, this year’s writer’s writing layout is absolutely not to open the “tidal picture”.

“I am a fictional thing.” The story of “Tidal Map” began. That is a female giant frog, in the 19th century, the end of the big aviation era, appeared in the water people in the Pearl River. Because the Scottish Museum h is trapped, she is governed by the 13th line of Guangzhou; then, the Yinhe Anni is coming to Macau, remembering H, and is treated as a star pet and rare species into a good scenery garden; on the eve of the Opium War , H bankrupt, the good scene garden disappears, the gournam is sent to Western Europe as an asset and become a member of the Imperial Zoo. In a winter, the giant frog escaped from the zoo. She came to a bay town and spent the last decade.


The novel is divided into three chapters. The first chapter tells the story of the giant frog in Guangzhou. The second chapter puts Macau, and the third chapter flocks to the farther Western world. In an interview, Lin Wei has a very clear “writing space” target this creation, so three places are set, and then the core role is customized. The amphibious giant frogs come – she can ruthfully parade between different places. Interestingly, from Guangzhou to Macau to Western Europe, we can obviously feel the changes in the big frog, including her words, her sentence, her cavity. Lin Wei finds the language and finds the logic of the novel. It is aimed at the fictional point in the complicated historical materials. She will let us want to believe everything in the gawau.

So, if you can calm down at the beginning, the reader can come to a world that is awakened. In this world, the past light is clearly visible, and the lost rural sound returns to the ear; the life outside the human beings feels, and the weak people opposite the strong people also have dignity. Although the time background of the story is very far away, we can see the previous impact and causing from text, and speculate how we step by step.

Lin Wei “tidal map”

Another ministerial associated with time and space this year is “After 80” writers Yang Wei “, looking for Southwest China on the road, river and the road.” In 1938, in order to avoid the fire, Peking University, Tsinghua, Nankai is forced to move, 300 teachers and students have departed from Changsha, 168 kilometers, 1600 kilometers, and finally arrived in Kunming, with another two-way teachers and students, this Have a big southwest. In 2018, Yang Wei recreated the 1600 kilometers of long roads in the “Hunan Yunnan Troupe”.


Unlike “Tidal Picture”, “Right” is a non-fictional text, but from “Looking back, see today” this sense, it is similar to “tidal map”. In the “heavy walk”, the two lines cross each other, one is trekking in the “Hunan Yunnan Troupe” in 1938, one is Yang Yutou’s turnover in 2018, the text is fused from the border of geography and psychology. , Interview with the border of historical materials, also blurred history and the boundaries of the current. We can infinitely close to the past, and we will clearly see the world in the world in the picture.


Yang Wei, “Right: Looking for Southwest China on the road, river and” “

On the other hand, “80” writers Guo Shuang from the psychological space concept, and obey the time and memory. “Moon” is her second novel set. 6 novels opened a secret room in the depths of different people: a front investigator that can’t stop taking antidepressants, a art teacher with his father to Russia, A seriously ill child with a mother, a young mother who felts a partner, a girlfriend who is always in the border, a neurosurger who practice dreams of dreams …

In the text, almost every novel appeared “Map”, and often appears: “Border” – it can be the boundaries in interpersonal relationships, between father and children, between the mother and the child, the lover, Between girlfriends; can be between life and work, between material and spirit; it can also be between the realities and reality. In fact, Guo Shuang has been pondering “border” when writing this book: “I think, when people feel that the existence of the boundary is a miniature inner storm, he knows who you are. This kind of Identification is not painful because loneliness is confirmed. This is a loneliness under modernity, can’t be solved, can’t be ignored. “

But on the Wait, Guo Shuang did not bind personal inner storms. On the contrary, she tried to find modern people in replacing memories and experience in their lives, find “Proof of each other”. There is a scene in the novel “Norwegian Maple”, and the daughter has a father with his father, and they have experienced the scenery and conflict. One day, my daughter closed his eyes in the gazebo of the garden, talked to her self-respect, she saw her blink, she saw her father far away, I don’t know when I started listening to her seriously. These traces left in the opponent’s heart, even if the end of life is still unable to be removed.

Guo Shuang “Moon”


Sky, you are looking for “I”

“After 90” writers, Zhou Wei published his second novel in this year, “Juvenile, Rouge and Quasi”. Four pieces of work in the book written in 2012 to 2014, that is, he started the first two years of novel creation. Through the skylight, a teenager, a dog’s boy, a dog, a baby hanging on the bell … Many stories come from the perspective of teenagers, which is also the perspective of Zhou Kai’s original writing. In fact, the characters under the pen often have a young man. Not only “Juvenile, Rouge and Bird”, “The Book of Detective Novelists”, the taxi, Li Zhaowu, Luo Li, “Moss”, etc., all have to resist it with their innocent and obsessive Days of daily, white water is shameless.

“After 90” writers Wang Sashin, the novel published this year “Ma Lingzhi’s past life” is regarded as “the first book” in its strict sense. It included the six novels cherished by Wang Suxin, about her childhood. But in writing, she found that the childhood of the pen is no longer the childhood at the time, but mixed a lot of childhood. For her, the biggest meaning of this book is to present a boy to know this world. There are huge energy, including a lot of suspicion, a lot of timidity, and desire for adults. “The more you don’t have the time of taboos, the you can see the intuitive experience of the most nature of life, and this experience is in our later self-education, we don’t dare to present again. So, this book is A very intense book. “

“After 90” writers Li Tang’s latest short story “The tiger in the vegetable market” is also related to the teenager. Every short article in the book has a teenager, they are weak, sensitive, loneliness, and reality. The breeders in “The Heart of Animals” began to imitate the imitation of animals, naked naked, eating animal feed, and tears in the response of animals. In the world of animals, he found his position; boy in the “Vegetable Market” is trapped in the mother’s sigh and father silence, urgently wanting to escape the family. A girl lacking left leg told him a tiger in the vegetable market and took him to the mysterious situation. The different love is tortured with a few collapse families, but in such a process, the boy looked at the “self”.

For Li Tang, the seven novels of the “Tiger in the Cuisine” is a tour of “self” exploration. The last article “Ruena” is the first novel he wrote more than a more than ten years. It is also the beginning of “self” and the collision of the outside world with the novel. He said: “People are constantly colliding with the world, squeezing, knowing themselves, thus establish ‘existence’.”

Another “90-after” writer – Song Aman’s latest novel “A friend again” is also a story about young and self. “I” and Gao Xi Rong are beautiful girls, we learn to dance together, write paintings in diary, have a lot of common memories, but they have come out of two times with different growth roads: Gao Xi Rong became The “bad children” in the society are tossing, and “I” became a well-flexible “good student”. For “I”, youth and growth are related to the girl named Gao Xi Rong. “I” I know “I” is different from her, but I am still envious of her, and even I thought I became her, then I continued to fail, constantly evade. Many years later, two people reunited, “I” look back in the continuous self-construction of these years, realizing that they must end their past and bridge.

To a large extent, the process of writing those people is also a process of confirming self. “Ah friends goodbye” is a fictional story, but there are some experiences and feelings of Song Aman in Song Aman. In a creation of “I have to have me, I have someone”, she wrote: “‘Have someone’, this a lot of novelists can do it, but I can really do ‘to have me’ is a few I agree with this concept and work hard to it. “

For “90s”, Pang Yu described is “unusful generation”: “From primary school, we wrote square words in Tianzi, and we have a good wood bridge in the college entrance examination. And we finally admitted to the ideal university After that, it was found that the reality is not written in the book. We have surrendered to the real life, find a job, blind date, watch the car loan millment. We can’t find the way yourself, so we tell yourself: there is no difficulty in the world, just give up. ” These confuses, hey, reflection, all written into two novels this year: “Mr. Wild Po: Nanjing Story Collection” and “White Cat”. The owners in the story are more than her with her, and they face “996”, marriage, lying flat, social terrorism, examination, and socialization.

And “90” writer Li Jiapong’s first “Youth Generation” is also a special text this year, the background setting of the novel is set in Europe, young people recover the right to speak with the help of the computer, and The old man over the age of 70 was exiled into the bottom of the society. Li Jiaon bluntly said that this novel is “a thought experiment”, because in the present society, more resources and power must be middle-aged and elderly people. This novel combines two questions for his long time: If the world is dominated by young people, how will society change? If super artificial intelligence comes to the world, what collision will happen to humans? Although it is a science fiction, it has strong realistic care for the youth situation in the current, we can’t help but expect, will this book will not affect the reality in the future?

Closed-loop fate, loneliness

This year, “90” writers three three published their second novel set “Russian Baby”. “Russian Baby” has a total of 12 short novels, and each story corresponds to a month, and a closed-loop closing of the first year. In fact, the story here also gives people a deep closed-loop: the woman who is in the old love, the woman does not go out of another woman’s shadow, the woman at the toll station from the small attacked in a venue to fight, the child is lost The goldfish in the oil pan returns to the dream. Unfamiliar netizens will send “replenishment” information, the misfortune of the mathematician is also copied … Even the title of the book is also implied: all the ingdoms As is exactly the same, their crushing does not lead to any growth – or will make the same fault, which plagues their things have endless circulation.

“90” writers in the east are in the constant movement and migration of the world, and thus continuously accept the rules of the new world. Similar to the girls in the novel “Spring Festival”, she has experienced countless times, and can only face another brand new place with the identity of the intruder. The new novel set “Miracle” covers 5 novels including “Generation Spring Day”, they extended to different historical periods, hitting different people helplessness and hardships in their respective coordinate axes, also refers to Vulnerable invasion and reconstruction of reality.

In the case of reading, “80” writers Soutan will give people a deep and cold accommodation. In the “wilderness” in the novel, six rodents went to the desolate snowfield. Just as the rodent action of the murder, a sudden squid disrupted everyone’s foot. Mask, disinfectant, hot water … In huge fear, only “I” with the love of girls brought a slap in the love. However, the tent of Silvergist is only a temporary existence in the winter grass, and the murderection will eventually end. This love seems to be destined to have endless.

And people feel that the heavy feelings are not only the feelings of accident. In the companions of “I”, some people have more disasters from the ancestors. Every generation has died because of the plague or inexplicably reasonable; some people have been happily hate the essay of the private parents; there is also one Calling Jingu’s fat guy, he has a genius of IQ and memory, since the “I” teach him to learn from his literacy. When “I” pursue love, Jin Wei strives to pursue knowledge, I hope to leave the grassland later, go to the city to find a good job. Not thinking, because of the insults of companions, Jin Qi seizures suicide, his wish will come to an abrupt.

As of now, Soutan’s novels are almost unfair to the grassland and herders, almost all in “wasteland”. In this book, we will see those who want to “ran out” like Jinyi, because the foreign city woman is impacted and tortured, people in the wilderness of the mountain, no matter how The wasteland seems to be their only final home. Sonan only made a few deaths, however, in the rough wilderness world, death is weakened, but in turn, the pure strength and spiritual essence of people and fate struggling on the ground.

“After 90” writers, the writing of Ding Yan is related to another earth. She published her first novel “Smoke Town” this year. The book is divided into “Lin Tan” articles and “Dongxiang” according to the chapter. “Lin Tan” and “Dongxiang”, they have existed in reality, Ding Yan has lived in these two places. In her description, “Lin Tan” is a desperate place, the plateau side town, monotonous depression, and Dongxiang four-sided loop, like an island. In the novel writing, she disassembles the two places that are familiar and unfamiliar. She describes the world you see, and in this process, she sees more for this world.

I can feel that this novel is filled with a deep sadness and loneliness. On the land where the returns, Tibetan symbiosis coexist, faith brought good, love and redemption, and also biased, opposition and pain; people guarded the belief and traditional life, but in the fast business era, it appeared in the fast business era; Good women face life with their kindness, they endure the hearts of the heart; young people continue to go to the big city, they are alienated and touched by their hometown. Ding Yan cares about this land, cares about the people on this land, and also cares about the compromise and reconciliation of him / them and the outside world.


After 80 “Writers Li Jing Rui also has its own understanding of fate. This year, she published her head of the history novel” Shen Yuntang “, telling about the family story of a household in Sichuan City, a family of Sichuan Province. At that time, the Revolution of 1911 Just end, my father is a master of a family, I am not willing to participate in politics, but in order to keep my family, I can only be alone, I chose Yuan Shikai; and his three children have embarked on a completely different road in the Times: Big son study abroad Western, think that only the Lord can save China; two children come back from Japan, and firmly believe that only revolution can bring change; the little daughter leaves the city, go to the Yanyin University News Department reading. The novel is 340,000 words, integrated into a lot of historical details and Local breath, also mixed with Li Jing Rui’s thinking and judgment on the issue of individual choices, women’s will, etc. in the big era.

On the occasion of the new book, many people will compare the “cautious after” “Moss”, “Moss”, two writers are also similar, all kinds of works, revolution, family Related. But the story of “moss” is falling in the late Qing Dynasty, with the end of 1911, and the story written by “Shen Yuntang” is the story after the revolution. In a conversation with Zhou Tiu, Li Jingrui said: “There is a sentence in Zhou Tei’s book, I am very impressed. He said that the revolution is like playing cards. If you have lost it once, lose once, no one is more You. For me, what I pay attention is precisely this board you won, but what will I do after winning? Is it over? “

Li Jing Rui “Shen Yuntang”

Small life, an instant

This year, “80” writers Xu Wei published his first short story collection “Xian”. A place called “婺城” often appears in the novel. “婺城” has a human taste, there is an invisible moral weight, as well as the elderly, orphaned children, individual households, parsley immigrants, literary youth and other shape “edge characters”. Xu Wei said: “The characters in the seven novels are small people. They are small people and small life in small cities, but they do not hinder their desires that are ultra-off, and they are exhausted. Don’t forget to reward yourself, try to make yourself happy. “


“After 80” writer Sun Yi Sheng’s “Night Game” is also a story of a county city, a story “never going far, and it can be said to happen”. Mathematics teacher in Cao County is clean and profitable. She said a standard Mandarin. She is a matter of attention, and I am awakened the youth desire of the young people, and it has become the protagonist of students and even teachers. After adult, “I” I met the old classmates of the police station, he told me that the rumors of Mao’s soldiers did have anything, but before, “I” has witnessed the secret of Mao’s secret. The hair of the teacher, has a clean fur, with the mother’s fur, the dark night, the fur, is a person.

“The origin of this novel, from my dilemma.” After writing this story, Sun Yishen found that Mao’s “set of people” in the pen of Chekhov is similar to those who are hidden. In fact, the frame of the county is, the frame of desire, the man who is humble and struggling is the most moving place. Such as Sun Yi Sheng said: “There is a person who tries to prove his existing people in these stories. Crack yourself. In the end, I am all waiting for the gun. “


“After 80” writers, the novels “Qingge” is a collection of characters about hometown. In the eight novels, in the place called “Fu Village”, the rural teachers who wrote poetry, wanted to write the story of the rural doctor, and wanted to film the movie and applets, decided to travel the lonely old lady, all kinds of characters Debut. They have someone left the village, some people go far, and some people return from the outside. Whether it is mixed in Shaanxi or a Gonggong, whether it is a “universe” or “local hero”, they have a long time in the ordinary life.

By 2020, the number of watches in urban life has exceeded the length of life in rural life. In writing, she avoided the fables, suffering, etc. in the village literary rhetoric, because she wants to write very brilliant people and the traces and shapes that they work hard. She said: “Over time, the ideal things disappear, and life also returns to the daily faces. But the original rays, the life full of rays is worth memory and writing, the characters in the novel They are both restrained, they are in the heart to conflict this beauty. “

“90” writer Zheng Zheng is in the city for many years in the city, and his new novel collection of this year “reunion is always due to” returning “. At the Spring Festival, people who live in the city returned to their hometown from all directions, thereby causing all kinds of interpersonal hustle and bustle. But the lively after the Spring Festival is short, the village will soon recover calm. We will see that when Zheng Yifu, the young people in the city, look back in the country, they face it, hear, think of, feelings, have been in a lot of youth with the last generation. Another novel set in Zheng Yifu this year, “killing the enemy tonight”, we can also see the spirit of his own youth.

And the edge of the city is equally worthy of our attention. In recent years, “80s” writer Wenzhen will consciously turn your attention to “them”: the monastor, hoarding, the mother’s single, Dinku married female, the square dance grandfather … Her latest novel set “Looking for the key” is also a Beijing “Edge” story set. In Wenzhen, “other people” other than those who live their lives are also involved in urban construction, but it is always difficult to truly integrate into mainstream, but “they” also have some partial “we”. So in writing, she entered the soul of “they”, feel the tragedy of “they”, find the key to life together.

“80 after” writer Meng Xiaoshu also proposed a concept “Sun Yugu” concept on a type of urban youth. There are three stories in the “amateur players”. The first story, the red version of the music is now in the script, and finally plagiarized the script. The opponent in the election show; the third story, the rock radio DJ Sun is a girl who has a favorite girl. Three stories have been mapped to each other, and they will turn their attention to the literary youths that are in the edge of the city: their self-contained and pride, confused and struggle, fragile and enthusiasm.


From this, we can see that no matter whether it faces history, the current is still in the future, whether in the face of specific individuals or the overall fate, “80” “90” youth writers can make their own response and thinking. Of course, they are also growing and changing, maybe the next presence will be very different from this year. They are still writing, they are always worth looking forward to.
