코미디 프로그램을 보다가 개그맨들의 허를 찌르는 콩트에 “와~ 천재다!” 소리를 자신도 모르게 할 때가 있습니다. 뭐, 빤히 보이는 결과로 웃음을 이끌어 내긴 힘드니 관객이 예상치 못한 결과를 보여주는 것이지만, 그러기까지 얼마나 많은 고민과 회의를 거듭했을까요. 그래서인지 일상적인 대화에서도 마찬가지인데요, 정말 어디로 튈 지 알 수가 없는 화법에 처음에는 당황하다가도 이내 폭소를 터뜨리게 됩니다. 이러한 생활이 습관이 되어 있는 사람이 책을 쓴다면 어떤 작품이 나오게 될까요?
현재 영국에서 Roald Dahl의 뒤를 이을 최고의 작가라고 불리는 David Walliams는 실제로 코미디언과 배우로서 활동을 하는 사람인데요, 그래서인지 작품에도 일상의 풍경에서 역발상으로 접근해 나가는 재치가 엿보입니다. 특히 이야기의 기본인 탄탄한 내러티브를 기본으로 뒤통수를 치는 반전이 있고 무엇보다 그의 작품에는 감동이 있다는 게 굉장한 장점입니다. 페이소스가 무엇인지를 정확히 아는 직업적 능력이 작가의 재능에도 이렇게 멋지게 발휘될 수 있구나…… 싶네요.
