內容簡介

你永遠不知道,在每一個家庭緊閉的門後,究竟發生著什麼事……

第二代韓裔美國人Kyung Cho,與愛爾蘭裔的太太和四歲的兒子,住在財務根本無法負擔的房子裡。他對於工作不滿意、兒子難以管教、婚姻緊張,更有嚴重的財務問題,幾乎快要將他壓垮。房屋給予的庇護,成了沉重的包袱。

Kyung的父母住在城鎮裡最精華的地段,過著優渥的生活。在他的成長過程中,物質生活十分豐富,卻不曾感受父母的愛。他不願與父母有任何接觸,更不用說向他們尋求財務上的協助了。

然而,當一樁慘絕人寰的暴力事件發生在Kyung父母的身上,一切情況就此改變。他逼不得已只好將父母接到家裡生活,罪惡感與不曾消逝的憤怒卻逐漸浮現,並陷入無止盡的矛盾與掙扎,一觸即發的緊張關係懸在空氣中。
Cho一家人,埋藏著什麼樣的過去?Kyung童年時,究竟經歷過什麼事?他們一家人,會走上什麼樣的未來?Kyung有辦法原諒父母嗎?家庭的意義到底是什麼?《Shelter》不只是移民家庭的故事,隨著故事進展,一層層揭露過去曾發生的一切,不斷堆砌懸疑元素,充滿張力與諷刺,帶領讀者走過黑暗與暴力,增添深度,出乎意料的結尾,尤其令人感到無比震撼。 


You never know what goes on behind closed doors. Kyung Cho owns a house that he can't afford. Despite his promising career as a tenure-track professor, he and his wife, Gillian, have always lived beyond their means. Now their bad decisions are catching up with them, and Kyung is anxious for his family's future. A few miles away, his parents, Jin and Mae, live in the town's most exclusive neighbourhood. Growing up, they gave Kyung every possible advantage - expensive hobbies, private tutors - but they never showed him kindness. Kyung can hardly bear to see them now, much less ask for their help. Yet when an act of violence leaves Jin and Mae unable to live on their own, the dynamic suddenly changes, and he decides to take them in. For the first time in years, the Chos find themselves under the same roof where tensions quickly mount and old resentments rise to the surface. As Shelter veers swiftly towards its startling conclusion, Jung Yun leads us through dark and violent territory, where, unexpectedly, the Chos discover hope. In the tradition of House of Sand and Fog and The Ice Storm, Shelter is a masterfully crafted first novel that asks what it means to provide for one's family and, in answer, delivers a story as riveting as it is profound.
