    by 陳慧 ...
    Series series 愛讀
    「無關我的弟弟,更多的是我對香港的一些感情。」  以家庭故事側寫整個社會大時代。    機巧明快的句子,一個輕巧的轉折就帶出人際情感的幽微複雜。  不只寫姊弟之愛,更是對香港這個城市的深厚感情。  《弟弟》透過簡潔而滿懷眷戀的描寫了舊街道、店面、生活經歷的場景的記憶,發現香港這座城還有很多微細而動聽的故事。沒有高潮迭起的情節轉折,像是重新走在故鄉的路上,沉浸在自己的回憶當中細細品味那些時光中的人物以及默默的發生故事,獨特雋永也使人產生共鳴。在一如在日復一日的生活中,覓得了一點生活中微小獨特發著光芒的碎片。  伴隨著弟弟的成長,也寫下一個世代對接踵而來事件的集體記憶:「保衛天星碼頭」、「魚蛋革命」、「雨傘運動」……在遊行、抗爭運動現場,情感與理念拉扯,不同世代的對立,關心與保護下的誤解、擔心安危的恐懼害怕,時代前進、弟弟長大,城市的改變也一去不回。這些時代磚瓦揚起的煙塵中 ...
