The Dinner 

Herman Koch

Translated from the Dutch by Sam Garrett


“What are you laughing about?” Claire said. My wife said. I looked at our beer glasses. Mine was empty; hers was still three-quarters full. As usual. My wife didn’t drink as fast as I did, which was another reason why I loved her, this evening perhaps more than other evenings.

“你在笑什么阿?”克莱儿说。我的妻子说。我看着我们的啤酒杯。我的空了。她的才喝了四分之一。跟平常一样。我的妻子从来不会喝的比我快我的妻子从来不会像我喝的那么快,这也是我爱她的另一个理由。尤其是今晚可能在这个夜晚,比起其他夜晚更甚之。(/尤其是这个夜晚?)


 “Nothing,” I said. “I was thinking...I was thinking about us.”

“没什么”我说。“我只是在想⋯⋯我在想我们俩”


It happened quickly: one moment I was looking at Claire, looking at my wife, probably with a loving gaze, or at least with a twinkle, and the next moment I felt a damp film slide down over my eyes.

一切都发生的太快了:前一刻我还在看着克莱儿,看着我的妻子。用爱慕的眼光看着,可能,或者至少那一瞬间,下一刻,我就觉得一个破旧的电影在我眼前迅速滑落。 我大概眼含爱慕,哪怕爱意只是一闪而过。下一刻,我觉得我的眼前升腾起雾气。

(damp film我觉得是朦胧的电影的意思。。下一秒钟,我就觉得眼前的景象迅速朦胧)


Under no circumstances was she to notice anything strange about me, so I buried my face in her hair. I tightened my grip around her waist and sniffed: shampoo. Shampoo and something else, something warm --the smell of happiness, I thought.

在她完全没有发现我的一样的情况下趁她还没发现我的异样,我把脸埋在了她的头发里。我把揽在她腰间的手收紧了一点,然后吸了吸鼻子:洗发露。洗发露和其他的什么东西,有什么温暖的东西——是幸福的味道,我想。我收紧了揽在她腰间的双臂,闻到了洗发露的味道。洗发露,或者什么别的味道,好温暖。我想那是幸福的味道



What would this evening have been like if, no more than an hour ago, I had simply waited downstairs until it was time to go, rather than climb stairs to Michel’s room?

这个夜晚会变成什么样如果不到一小时之前,我只是在楼下等待直到出发的时间,而不是爬上楼梯走进麦克的房间?


What would the rest of our lives have been like?

我们接下来的生活会变成什么样?


Would the smell of happiness I inhaled from my wife’s hair still have smelled only like happiness, and not, as it did now, like some distant memory—like the smell of something you could lost just like that?

我闻到的我老婆的发隙间幸福的味道是否还是一样只有幸福,还是或者不是,而像现在一样,(/还是像现在一样?)像一段久远的记忆——闻起来像什么容易丢失的东西?

(我在妻子的发隙间到的幸福的味道,能否还可能仅仅成为幸福?或者就像现在这样,它将成为一种遥远的回忆,就像那些你已经失去的东西的气息?)
