內容簡介




她唯一的罪行,是獨立自主地追求自己的人生!

「我不知道未來有沒有人會記得我,如果有的話,希望沒有人會將我視為受害者,而是一個勇敢往前邁進、並付出她該付的代價的人。」


真實故事改編,神秘的荷蘭女子瑪塔.哈里(Mata Hari)的傳奇故事!
在她逝世一百週年前夕,《牧羊少年奇幻之旅》作者保羅.科爾賀以第一人稱角度,想像她在迎接死亡前的那一刻,以書信回顧的人生……

她曾移居印尼;
她曾在馬戲團當過騎師;
她以艷舞在巴黎社交界掀起一陣旋風;
她是二十世紀初的知名交際花;
她在第一次世界大戰期間,以間諜罪名遭到槍決……

她十九歲結婚後移居印尼,卻時常遭酗酒的丈夫家暴,兒子則意外早逝。她決心離開婚姻,移居巴黎,在馬戲團擔任騎師。擁有東方面孔的她,後以瑪塔.哈里為藝名,以充滿東方風情的舞蹈打響名號,為巴黎的娛樂圈帶來新氣象。然而,隨模仿者不斷增加,她的舞蹈事業急遽下滑,逐漸與歐洲各國政要發展密切的關係,埋下日後悲劇的種子。

1917年,她被指控為間諜,隨之遭到逮捕。即使缺乏證據,她卻仍難逃一死。處決前,她在獄中寫下最後一封信,紀錄自己短暫但顛沛流離的一生……

傳奇女子瑪塔.哈里一生充滿謎團,不管是擁有東方血統的傳聞,或是雙面間諜的身分,都未獲得證實。當代知名作家保羅.科爾賀以瑪塔.哈里的口吻,想像並重塑她的一生。她勇於衝破道德界線與社會規範的束縛,選擇違抗傳統的獨立人生,堪稱走在時代尖端的女性,卻為此付出性命,令人不勝唏噓。

In his new novel, Paulo Coelho, best-selling author of The Alchemist and Adultery, brings to life one of history’s most enigmatic women: Mata Hari. The story of her celebrated yet mysterious life as an exotic dancer and courtesan, and her controversial execution as a spy during the First World War unfolds as a fascinating first-person narrative of self-creation and bravery.

Her only crime was to be an independent woman: “I do not know if the future will remember me, but if it should, may no one ever view me as a victim, but as someone who moved forward with courage, and paid the price she had to pay.”

On the occasion of the centenary of Mata Hari’s execution for espionage in 1917, Paulo Coelho reconsiders her life and character in a fictional memoir. In a series of letters, written from prison on the eve of her death, Mata Hari reflects on the choices she has made to always pursue her own truth–from her childhood in a small Dutch town, to unhappy years as the wife of an alcoholic diplomat in Java, to her calculated and self-fashioned rise to celebrity in Paris and across Europe as an exotic dancer and confidante to the most powerful men of the time. Though there was little evidence to incriminate her, Mata Hari was unable to escape persecution and prosecution by French military intelligence, and at the novel’s end, Coelho re-creates a final letter, written by Mata Hari’s lawer, Edouard Clunet, that offers a captivating view of Europe at war and the fatal price of suspicion.
