內容簡介

入圍2015年布克獎決選書單
關於英國少數民族受到忽略、絕望的作品
偉大的,令人印象深刻。──星期日泰晤士報
豐富的,複雜的,優美的小說。──The Times

原本是中產階級的家庭,頓時陷入貧困,不得不透過假婚姻取得簽證,得以苟延殘喘,開始新生活──Avtar和Randeep就是兩個持學生簽證來到英國,必須跟英國人結婚以求得居留;Tochi則是親眼目睹家人被殺,一無所有逃到英國的賤民;Narinder則是Randeep的簽證妻子──原本四個人各自平行的生活,卻被命運安排,促使他們不可逆轉地糾纏,彼此吸引,糾葛,錯縱複雜、離奇的關係,成就了這部作品。 

作者Sunjeev Sahota的文字,波瀾壯闊,描述主角在逆境下,頑強的韌性,在無所遁形的逃亡過程中,孤獨絕望;在一次驚天動地的暴力事件中,桀驁不馴的情節,讓人讀來落淚,激動不已。讀過這本小說,從此看待世界,不會再以同樣的方式了。

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015 'A brilliant and beautiful novel' Kamila Shamsie, Guardian The Year of the Runaways tells of the bold dreams and daily struggles of an unlikely family thrown together by circumstance. Thirteen young men live in a house in Sheffield, each in flight from India and in desperate search of a new life. Tarlochan, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his past in Bihar; and Avtar has a secret that binds him to protect the choatic Randeep. Randeep, in turn, has a visa-wife in a flat on the other side of town: a clever, devout woman whose cupboards are full of her husband's clothes, in case the immigration men surprise her with a call. Sweeping between India and England, and between childhood and the present day, Sunjeev Sahota's generous, unforgettable novel is - as with Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance - a story of dignity in the face of adversity and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
