『ブロデックの報告書』

桜の花も先日の雨でほぼ散ってしまった。

Sakuracifon0415

これは先日久しぶりに行った喫茶店で食べた桜のシフォンケーキ。桜の葉の風味が豊かで、ふっくらした食感でなかなか美味しかった。オカダはお酒も飲むけど甘いものも好きなので、人から変わってるとよく言われる。3時のおやつも欠かしたことないし。その割に太らないのは遺伝した体質のおかげだろう。

そして次は新緑の季節。世間ではGWが話題になっている。中には16連休という会社もあるそうだ。オカダは、例年の如く家でごろごろする予定(笑)。

さて、ヤヤーさんの紹介記事 に触発されて、フィリップ・クローデル 『ブロデックの報告書』 みすず書房 を読んだ。クローデルはフランス、ロレーヌ地方出身の作家。

この小説の舞台は、第二次世界大戦が始まった頃、ドイツに併合されていたロレーヌ地方がモデルのようだ。主人公のブロデックによって、村で起きたある事件のことが語られていく。それと平行して、自分自身の身に起きたことも語られていって……。

徐々に明かされる事件の真相、そして衝撃の事実。非常に重くて暗いストーリーだったけど、エンディングでは微かな希望を見出すことができた。読み終わって、ふうとため息をつきたくなるような、お腹にずんと残るような小説。とてもヘビーな、充実した読書体験だった。

もしオカダがブロデックの立場だったら、ただ大勢に流されるだけかもしれないなあ、残念だけど。

一方、小説の中でのこの村の豊かな自然や田舎の家々の描写には、すごく惹かれた。なぜか強い憧れを持っていることを自分で再認識した。

オカダは、映画は洋画の方が好きで、実際に見るのも洋画がほとんどなのだけど、小説の方は圧倒的に日本の方が多い。特にさしたる理由はないのだけど、やっぱり馴染みやすいからだろうか。これからは外国の小説ももっと読むことにしよう。

と、ここまで書いていったん保留にし、新聞の切り抜きを整理していたら、なんと、敷村良子さんが書いたこの本の書評が見つかった。3月4日付けの地元の新聞。とっておこうと思って切り抜いていたのだろうけど、すっかり忘れていた(^_^;。

敷村さんは書評をこう締めくくっていた。

私たちは侵略国の兵士にも虐殺の犠牲者にもなりうる。
本書は人間の本質をめぐるミステリー。残念ながら、それは結果的にホラーでもある。

さすが、簡潔にして明確にこの本を言い表していると思う。

TBありがとうございます♪
イヤこれホントに重苦しい本でしたね。
じぶんの見たくない部分を突きつけられてるというか…。

朝日の書評は奥泉光さんでした。
さすがとしか言いようがない内容で、しかも原稿用紙の正しい使い方をしてました。
というか、作家だからこのくらい書けて当たり前と思われてるんだろうなぁ、それも大変だなぁ、と思ったりしました。
ちょっと前の寒い頃、同じ朝日の書評で「これはどう見たって訳者あとがきだけ読んで書いたもんだろう!」と思われるものがあって、お金もらって書いてるんならちゃんと読めよ!とムカついてました。
その本とそのことについても書きたいのに、毎日眠くて気がつくと朝です(^^;)
機を完全に逸してます。

オカダさん こんにちは。
甘いもの好きの男の人っていいですねー♪
一緒に食べにいけるし、手作りしても食べるのは自分だけ・・・ってことにならないし。
桜ものってこの季節だけなので、私も桜サブレ、桜最中、桜パイなど食べました。その分太るところがオカダさんと違うところですが!!!

ヤヤーさん曰く「じぶんの見たくない部分を突きつけられてる」、こういう本は確かにヘビーでしょうね。最近は軽い本の気分が続いてるんですが、「ヘビーな、充実した読書体験」をしたいときに、ぜひ読んでみたくなりました。

私もブログに本の感想書きますが、「簡潔にして明確に言い表す」って本当にできません。言い当てているのを読むとすっきりします。

ほんとに質、量ともにヘビーな本でしたね。でも読んでよかったです。

>朝日の書評は奥泉光さんでした。
そうでしたか。やっぱりあちこちで注目された本だったんですね。
確かに、優れた作家が必ずしも優れた書評を書けるというものでもないでしょうけどね。
>同じ朝日の書評で「これはどう見たって訳者あとがきだけ読んで書いたもんだろう!」と思われるものがあって、
そんなのがあったんですか。編集者も読んでないので気づかなかったんでしょうね。読者をなめた話ですね。

>その本とそのことについても書きたいのに、毎日眠くて気がつくと朝です(^^;)
>機を完全に逸してます。
4月はお忙しいようですね。その記事が読めなかったのは残念ですけど、御自愛下さい。

ciao*さん、こんばんは。
>一緒に食べにいけるし、手作りしても食べるのは自分だけ・・・ってことにならないし。
なるほど、甘いもの好きの男にはそんな効用がありましたか。でも残念ながらそういう機会には恵まれませんが(^_^;。
季節限定のものを食べるのも、その季節ならではの楽しみがあっていいですよね。その楽しみのためには、少々太ってもしょうがないってことで。

「ヘビーな、充実した読書体験」も、たまにはいいですね。ずっとだと疲れてしまいますし。そういう気分のときに、是非読んでみてください。

ホントに「簡潔にして明確に言い表す」って難しいですよね。オカダもうまくいったことがないので、悪戦苦闘の連続です。それでもこうやってコミュニケーションのきっかけとなるので続けられるような気がします。
