《牛号3963》于2014年4月30日在豆瓣阅读开始连载,于10月18日完稿。

Cow No. 3963 started on 30th April, 2014 on Douban Reading website, it was completed on 18th October, 2014.

作者自述:写作地点是以色列,但我不愿让战火进入我的作品。无孔不入的人类的欲望和战火一样,会侵入你心灵最细微的地方,并留下最脆弱的一块伤疤。在土地稀缺的以色列,牛奶产量世界第一,走进牧场的我认识了小牛3963。

牛号3963的这头小牛和一群人,散漫地共存着,只是不知道,这生活竟然是那么地相似。小牛3963不愿成为牧场大规模牛奶生产链上的牺牲品,自认为从出生开始就“与众不同”,辗转出逃,命途多舛,直到生命结束。愿如《动物庄园》般寓意深远、如《想飞的母鸡》般清新自然。

在地球的另一边,阳光炙烤着的那片绝望的沙漠里,有这样一块小而精悍的绿洲。那里的集体农庄中,总有这样一两个安静而高速运转的牧场。我在那里碰到了小牛3963。她怯懦地瑟缩在牛栏深处,做着痴痴的梦。我抚摸了另外一头小牛的头,却看穿了3963的野心。

Words from the author: The idea was composed in Israel, but I tried to prevent war getting into my work. Desire is like war, it encroaches the most sensitive part of your heart, then leaves the weakest scar behind. In the place where land is a scarce, I met No. 3963 in a farm.

Cow No. 3963 and a bunch of people are living together loosely, only they don’t know how much their lives resemble each other. No. 3963 does not want to be sacrificed to the mass production of diary industry, she ran away, looking for her freedom until the end of her life. I hope it will be as serious as Animal Farm in its own way, and refresh like The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly.

In the other side of the Earth, sun burns the desert into despair. There is a tiny oasis. In the collective farms, they run quietly with extreme efficiency. I met No. 3963 there. She squeezed herself in the corner of her cage, dreaming. I touched another calf’s head, but what I understood is No. 3963’s ambition, or say, illusion.
