內容簡介

他只有六個星期的時間
替惡名昭彰的詐欺犯撰寫回憶錄的影子作家
當兩人的人生變得益加密不可分,恐怖的事件竟一一浮現!

2014年曼布克文學獎得主《行過地獄之路》
被譽為當代最優秀的澳洲小說家理查.費納根
作者本人真實故事改編,探討真相與謊言之作!


實境秀節目製作人克爾曼,回顧年輕時因為貧窮,無法在兼顧生計的情況下完成首部小說,因而同意為惡名昭彰的詐欺犯撰寫回憶錄……

年輕時的克爾曼是個年輕窮困的作家。一天夜裡,因為詐騙銀行兩百多億而即將面臨審判的詐欺犯海德爾,向他提出以六個星期時間為其撰寫回憶錄、換取三十五萬元報酬的提議……淪為惡名昭彰詐欺犯的影子作家的克爾曼,卻開始恐懼自己身陷海德爾的淫威之下,隨著截稿日期逼近,他變得越來越不確定,到底是他在為回憶錄捉刀,還是海德爾在重寫他的人生與未來……彷彿被詐欺犯附身的他,所確信的一切產生動搖,也不禁懷疑,海德爾到底是誰?他到底是誰?真實到底是什麼?

本書以作者本人曾為澳洲最惡名昭彰的詐欺犯撰寫回憶錄的故事改編。1991年,年輕貧窮的費納根,不僅破產、太太懷有身孕,在幾乎無法維持生計的情況下,為詐欺犯約翰.弗萊德里奇的回憶錄《Codename Iago》捉刀。本書為回憶錄形式的小說,在這個一切都幾可亂真的時代裡,探討真實與虛構的界線,以及另類事實與虛假身份,將會帶領我們走向什麼結果?

What is the truth? In this blistering story of a ghostwriter haunted by his demonic subject, the Man Booker Prize winner turns to lies, crime and literature with devastating effect Kif Kehlmann, a young penniless writer, is rung in the middle of the night by the notorious con man and corporate criminal, Siegfried Heidl. About to go to trial for defrauding the banks of $700 million, Heidl offers Kehlmann the job of ghost-writing his memoir. He has six weeks to write the book, for which he'll be paid $10,000. But as the writing gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by Heidl. As the deadline draws closer, he becomes ever more unsure if he is ghost writing a memoir, or if Heidl is rewriting him - his life, his future. Everything that was certain grows uncertain as he begins to wonder: who is Siegfried Heidl -- and who is Kif Kehlmann? As time runs out, one question looms above all others: what is the truth? By turns compelling, comic, and chilling, this is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.
