內容簡介

《命運晚餐》(The Dinner)荷蘭暢銷作家、《紐約時報》暢銷作家荷曼.柯赫(Herman Koch)最新力作!

M先生曾經是知名作家,習慣曝光於鎂光燈下,書迷總是將簽書會擠得水洩不通,主要就是由於那本根據真實失蹤事件改編的懸疑小說《Reckoning》:一個與女學生發展出短暫戀情的老師,被女孩與男友謀殺後,屍體卻找不到。然而,現在的M先生名氣大不如前、一落千丈,卻發現怪鄰居不僅對他的作品有明顯的強烈興趣,也時時關注著他與太太的一舉一動……

那位鄰居的人生故事,似乎與M先生的小說劇情有密不可分的關係。他到底是誰?究竟有什麼目的?那本小說,真的只不過是虛構的「故事」嗎?建立M先生多年文學成就的《Reckoning》,是否扭曲了一樁失蹤案的真相,即使那只是個「故事」?真相到底是什麼?

以五位不同敘述者的角度訴說,他們的命運似乎不知怎的,因為《Reckoning》而緊緊交織在一起,究竟誰的話才能相信?當「故事」突然往異常的方向發展,會發生什麼事?

以逐漸攀升的緊迫氣氛、黑色幽默與諷刺,荷曼.柯赫將讀者帶往現實與虛構間模糊地帶,並探討重要文學議題:作者是否享有隨意改編故事的自由?


Dear Mr. M., I'd like to start by telling you that I'm doing better now. I do so because you probably have no idea that I was ever doing worse. Much worse, in fact, but I'll get to that later on. Mr. M. is being watched. As a famous writer, he is no stranger to the limelight, although interest in his work has been dwindling of late. His print runs are smaller than they used to be, as are the crowds at his bookshop signings ...Our narrator clearly takes a keen interest in M.'s work, and indeed in every aspect of his life. But what exactly are his intentions? And to what does Mr. M. owe the honour of his undivided attention? Our narrator seems to be no stranger to murder, while his own story appears to bear more than a passing resemblance to the plot of Mr. M.'s most famous novel: a teacher has an affair with a student, only to be brutally murdered by the girl and her teenage boyfriend. The body is never found. That's the problem with fiction: in real life, bodies have an awkward habit of turning up. Mr. M. has used some artistic licence, and our narrator is not pleased, not pleased at all. And just before he fades into obscurity, he's prepared to give Mr. M. one last review. And it's unlikely to be a rave.
