SAT Question of  the Day
2016/3/25


当代小说要比近代小说如《简爱》等读起来更容易一些,部分原因是它通常摆脱了近代小说中上流社会刻意追求文雅或教养的表达方式。小说题的难度在于要迅速推测作品的背景,确定人物关系,抓住情节的主要大意。这篇名为Almost Tall的小说并非主流作品,以下为亚马逊对本书的介绍


In Almost Tall, 14-year-old Dinah finds herself plucked(开除) from her provincial mid-western ballet class and dropped in her uncle's glittering New York penthouse. What starts out as a lonely summer quickly becomes a whirl of cocktails and haute(时髦的) couture(女装店) under the mercurial attention of her uncle's bombastic and insecure partner, Eddie. With remarkable poise(镇定), she struggles against a city that seems determined to turn innocence into cynicism and the young into "strangers to youth."

This passage is adapted from Vestal McIntyre, Almost Tall. ©2013 by Vestal McIntyre. Dinah, a teenager, is meeting Eddie's friend Rebecca, a fashion designer, for the first time.

Racks of clothes stood at distances from each other across the room: cliques of glamorous ghosts. A mirror covered one wall, sketches and patterns taped to it here and there. Near the opposite wall of paned glass, two assistants worked at a long table topped with computers, stacks of magazines, and wads of fabric. Across a narrow street stood a brick building with small windows framing scenes from a play: actors playing office workers, drifting in and out of cubicles.

"Now," Eddie said once Rebecca had ended her call, "show us what you're working on." Rebecca searched the coffee table and tugged some sketches out from a pile. "It's Arts and Crafts, and it's Dolce Vita. There's a little kabuki in the silhouette, you see. And Voltaire—I've been reading Voltaire." She turned to Dinah. "I must sound totally pretentious to you, Dinah, but this is what I do. I have to plunder. Fashion is nothing so pure as dance. By nature, clothes must refer."

She continued to make claims Dinah didn't quite understand, but which sounded wild and intelligent, and which made Dinah long to become that person who would understand them, agree or disagree with them. Dinah clearly knew nothing. She hadn't even known that dance was pure.

Eddie voraciously seconded everything Rebecca said. Then Rebecca led them over to a rack and started pulling out suits of pink tweed, tops of accord ironed silk, skirts of mossy burlap.

"I'm working younger these days." She held a strange little blue dress up to Dinah. "You could wear this. It's that young."

In general, Dinah sailed on a smooth emotional sea, free from the crushes and contests that stormed on her friends. But now and then, a wave of adolescent emotion would rise out of nowhere and crash against her. Here came one such tsunami: complete devotion to Rebecca Leigh, this queen of the city who treated Dinah as an equal. Dinah loved her more than her best friend, more than her mother.
