Four windows, real windows, were divided into panes by a broad streak of green. There was actually a tiny porch, too, painted yellow, with big lumps of congealed paint hanging along the edge.

But perfect, perfect little house! Who could possibly mind the smell? It was part of the joy, part of the newness.

精彩詮譯英國作家凱薩琳.曼斯菲爾德的《玩具屋》
《玩具屋》是凱薩琳.曼斯菲爾德於一九二一年完成的短篇小說,從中窺見窮人在資本主義社會中的寂寞氛圍。然而,這個被哀愁囚禁的失歡童年,卻因為看見生命夾縫中的一盞燈光,抵達以為永遠到不了的遙遠天堂。
