  "What happens when I get back? Do I have my office? Am I still a partner?"

  "I don't know, Nate. This is your fourth time in the hospital in ten years. If you went back now, you'd go back to the office and be the world's greatest lawyer for six months. You'd ignore the old friends, the old bars, the old neighborhoods. You'd work, work, work. Then there'd be a crack somewhere. An old friend might find you. A girl from another life. You'll slide again. I don't want that to happen."

  "A couple of weeks in the Brazilian wetlands is beginning to sound good," Nate said.

  "So you'll go?"

  "Yes."

  “我回来之后会怎样?我还有自己的办公室吗?我还是事务所的一员吗?”

  “我不知道,尼特。这是你十年来第四次进医院了。如果现在让你回去,你会回到办公室,在六个月内变成世界上最优秀的律师,你会跟以前的那些狐朋狗友、酒吧、邻居统统划清界线,你会不停地拼命工作。然后某个地方会出现裂口,也许是一个老朋友来找你,也许是出现了一个过着另一种生活的女孩,然后你就又会自甘堕落。我不希望那种事情再次发生。”

  “在巴西的湿地待两三个星期,这听上去开始有点意思了。”尼特说。

  “这么说你同意去了?”

  “是的。”
