內容簡介

一段不期而遇的浪漫邂逅,造就兩大家庭無法改變的深遠影響

英國BBC評選為2016年十大必讀佳作


南加州一個美好的假日午後,Bert Cousins不請自來的出現在Franny Keating家的洗禮儀式。夜幕低垂之時,Bert情不自禁親吻了Franny的母親Beverly。一個看似浪漫告別的親吻,似乎解救了兩個家庭的婚姻,卻也開啟兩個家庭注定走向分崩離析的局面。故事橫跨50個年頭,一段看似浪漫的邂逅,卻深深影響兩個家庭及他們的6位子女,Keating及Cousins家族的孩子們,從維吉尼亞共度的暑假開始,就注定要與他們父母之間的愛恨情仇中,深深牢牢的綁在一起。透過作者Ann Patchett精闢細膩的人物刻劃,塑造出令人難忘及刻骨銘心的複雜家庭故事。

The acclaimed, bestselling author winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize tells the enthralling story of how an unexpected romantic encounter irrevocably changes two families lives.

One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating s christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny s mother, Beverly thus setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families.

Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how this chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved. Spending summers together in Virginia, the Keating and Cousins children forge a lasting bond that is based on a shared disillusionment with their parents and the strange and genuine affection that grows up between them.

When, in her twenties, Franny begins an affair with the legendary author Leon Posen and tells him about her family, the story of her siblings is no longer hers to control. Their childhood becomes the basis for his wildly successful book, ultimately forcing them to come to terms with their losses, their guilt, and the deeply loyal connection they feel for one another.

Told with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, Commonwealth is a meditation on inspiration, interpretation, and the ownership of stories. It is a brilliant and tender tale of the far-reaching ties of love and responsibility that bind us together."
