內容簡介

美國文學巨擎唐.德里羅(Don DeLillo)最新力作,他近年來最豐富、幽默且感人的作品

「我們出生別無選擇。難道我們死亡時,也必須同樣別無選擇嗎?如果能拒絕接受命運,不就會是人類的驕傲嗎?」--《Zero K》

一本對語言的頌歌、對死亡的反思、對生命的擁護,觸及人心的作品。

Jeffrey Lockhart的父親Ross是六十多歲的億萬富翁,而他的年輕太太Artis Martineau,健康狀況正逐漸惡化。Ross是一間秘密醫療生技機構的主要投資者:它座落於遙遠隱密的地區,在那裡,死亡被精準控制,屍體則被保存下來,等待未來生物醫藥與新科技發展純熟時,再將他們死而復生。當Artis自願放棄生命時,Jeffrey與父親一起到現場,抱著以後還有機會見面的希望與她道別。一個不確定的告別。 

唐.德里羅藉由令人印象深刻的角色,在書中不斷探討生與死的問題。Ross Lockhart尤其深深確信,他必須通往另一個境界,醒來後看到的是新世界;然而,對他的兒子Jeffrey而言,父親的論點完全站不住腳。Jeffrey是全書敘述者,他熱愛生命,相信的是「在此時此刻的土地上,體驗在有生之年中,悲喜交雜的驚奇。」

唐.德里羅在觀察細微的優秀新作品中,以恐怖主義、洪患、饑荒與瘟疫,對比愛、敬畏與「土地與陽光的親密碰觸」,權衡世界的黑暗面與人類日常生活的美好。

唐.德里羅與菲利普.羅斯 (Philip Roth)、戈馬克.麥卡錫 (Cormac McCarthy) 與湯馬斯.品瓊 (Thomas Pynchon) 並稱美國四大名家,多次獲諾貝爾文學獎提名且呼聲極高。迄今已出版十餘本長篇小說與三本劇作,另著有諸多短篇小說與隨筆。其著名作品為《白噪音》(White Noise)、《毛二世》(Mao II)、《地下世界》(Underworld)與《大都會》(Cosmopolis)等。


Jeffrey Lockhart's father, Ross, is a billionaire in his sixties, with a younger wife, Artis Martineau, whose health is failing. Ross is the primary investor in a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely controlled and bodies are preserved until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return them to a life of transcendent promise. Jeff joins Ross and Artis at the compound to say "an uncertain farewell" to her as she surrenders her body. "We are born without choosing to be. Should we have to die in the same manner? Isn't it a human glory to refuse to accept a certain fate?" These are the questions that haunt the novel and its memorable characters, and it is Ross Lockhart, most particularly, who feels a deep need to enter another dimension and awake to a new world. For his son, this is indefensible. Jeff, the book's narrator, is committed to living, to experiencing "the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth." Don DeLillo's seductive, spectacularly observed and brilliant new novel weighs the darkness of the world-terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague-against the beauty and humanity of everyday life; love, awe, "the intimate touch of earth and sun."
