內容簡介

《柯克斯》獎決選名單

「Haslett是美國最具天分的作家之一,他有一種第六感可以來塑造人物。」
--《華爾街日報》

「野心勃勃且令人激動...Haslett以這本書達到了另一個等級。」
--《紐約時報》書評

入圍普立茲獎與美國國家圖書獎,狂暴的親密故事,一個家庭面對的終極問題:為了拯救最愛的人,我們可以做到什麼樣的程度?

1960年代的倫敦,當Margaret的未婚夫John因為憂鬱症住進了醫院,她必須面對兩個選擇:一是不管他的身心狀態為何,她將按照他們的計畫繼續走下去;二是回到John的憂鬱症還沒給她帶來痛苦之前,也就是離開他。而她,選擇了一:嫁給他。

Imagine Me Gone 是一個從愛與信念的行動中所展開的讓人難忘的故事。故事的核心是他們的大兒子Michael,一個聰明、焦慮、對音樂狂熱的人,透過戲謔方式模仿嚴肅作品來理解這個世界。幾十年來,他的手足,精明而負責任的Celia以及野心而高度自制的Alec,與母親努力地照看父親Michael越來越糟糕且搖搖欲墜的生存狀態。

家中五個成員以不同的觀點述說這個尖刻、哀傷但是常常又讓人噴飯的故事,這部小說以其深刻與痛苦,活生生地展現母親給孩子們的愛,手足之間不可逃避的奉獻,以及父親的痛苦給家庭生活帶來的遺緒。

精準的情緒描述,活潑而創新的語言,作者帶給我們罕見的事物:一本改變我們看待生命中最重要的人的方式。

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD and ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL FOR EXCELLENCE IN FICTION

KIRKUS PRIZE FINALIST

"Haslett is one of the country's most talented writers, equipped with a sixth sense for characterization."--Wall Street Journal

"Ambitious and stirring . . . With Imagine Me Gone, Haslett has reached another level." --New York Times Book Review

New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

Best Books of 2016 So Far -- Time and Refinery29

From a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, a ferociously intimate story of a family facing the ultimate question: how far will we go to save the people we love the most?

When Margaret's fiancé, John, is hospitalized for depression in 1960s London, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans despite what she now knows of his condition, or back away from the suffering it may bring her. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith. At the heart of it is their eldest son, Michael, a brilliant, anxious music fanatic who makes sense of the world through parody. Over the span of decades, his younger siblings -- the savvy and responsible Celia and the ambitious and tightly controlled Alec -- struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existence. 

Told in alternating points of view by all five members of the family, this searing, gut-wrenching, and yet frequently hilarious novel brings alive with remarkable depth and poignancy the love of a mother for her children, the often inescapable devotion siblings feel toward one another, and the legacy of a father's pain in the life of a family. 

With his striking emotional precision and lively, inventive language, Adam Haslett has given us something rare: a novel with the power to change how we see the most important people in our lives.
