內容簡介

Adam Haslett以2003年的《You Are Not a Stranger Here》登上《紐約時報》暢銷書排行榜,並被選入普立茲獎與美國國家圖書獎決選名單,推出最新力作!

為了拯救最愛的人,我們會付出多少?

「Haslett的最新作品,是具有影響力又有野心的著作,探討家庭之間的羈絆。這份羈絆,不只是對於家庭的愛,更以迫切緊急的形式籠罩著Michael,他遺傳了爸爸John持續的憂鬱與焦慮…… 這本書溫柔且清楚地探討心理疾病與心境。Haslett創造了Michael,最令人印象深刻的角色。這是一本催眠且扣人心弦的小說。」――《出版者週刊》(Publishers Weekly)

在1960年代的倫敦,當Margaret的未婚夫John因為憂鬱症住院時,她面臨了人生的抉擇:即使她已經知道John的身體狀況,仍照原本計畫結婚,還是要從往後的日子裡可能會帶給她的苦難中抽身。Margaret決定嫁給他。

這個故事,就從Margaret充滿愛與信念的決定中揭開序幕。全書以五位家庭成員角度的敘述交錯:主角長男Michael是傑出但焦慮的音樂狂熱者,他藉由諷刺模仿了解世界。在數十年裡,他領悟力高、負責任的妹妹Celia,和充滿野心但拘謹的弟弟Alec,則與媽媽一同照顧逐漸變得混亂且危險的爸爸。

《Imagine Me Gone》情感強烈且幽默,將母親對孩子的愛、兄弟姊妹無可避免對對方的付出,以及父親的痛苦對家庭所造成的影響,以沉痛的筆觸與深度、富創造力的語言,不僅將一個家庭的故事呈現在讀者眼前,也改變我們看待人生中最重要人物的方式。

A sweeping American drama about the long legacy of mental illness, the bonds of kinship, and the limits of love

Michael is John and Margaret's eldest son. He's a precocious kid, smart and funny, obsessed with books and music.

His sister Celia is the sensible one in the family: tougher than the boys, unshakeably certain about how the world works.

And then there's Alec, the youngest, the most ambitious and also the most sensitive. He grows up in the shadow of Michael's distant coolness and Celia's pragmatic confidence, never quite keeping up with the others.

The children are still living at home when their brilliant, beloved father walks into the woods by their house and take his own life. Years later, one of them will follow him.

How are we damaged by what we inherit? How much can any family give to save one of its own? And how can you tell the difference between what is passed on and what is picked up - between the truly inherited flaw and the self-fulfilling prophecy?

Weaving together the voices of five family members, Adam Haslett imagines how a single isolated tragedy can become the event that defines many lives, unfolding a rich and painful novel that has all the makings of an American classic.
