內容簡介

◎入圍2017年曼布克獎

「寧靜的爆炸之作,精緻且令人難忘。」-《經濟學人》雜誌

「布局巧妙的鄉野哥德式寓言…Elmet是一個了不起的成就。」-《泰晤士報文學副刊》

「田園樂土加上政治爆料,是溫暖的家族故事,也是一部恐怖小說,這本書讀起來就像傳統的兒童故事演變成幫派電影,是《糖果屋》遇見了《教父》。」-《星期日泰晤士報》

來自小說界令人讚嘆的新聲,清新且與眾不同的寫作風格,Elmet是一部令人難忘的家庭小說,也是一段對地景的美麗沉思。

丹尼爾朝著北方前進,他在尋找某一個人。與爸爸和凱西過著的簡單生活卻演變成了辛酸且令人害怕的日子。他們離群索居,住在爸爸以雙手打造的屋子裡,他們靠著採集、狩獵的方式維生。小時候上學時就與其他的孩子們不同,現在,他們與其他人更不一樣了。爸爸有時侯會消失一陣子,然後帶著憤怒的眼神返家,一回到家,就會變成原來祥和的爸爸。他告訴丹尼爾與凱西,在艾爾密特的矮林只屬於他們兄妹倆,但事實並非如此。當地人就像禿鷹一般虎視眈眈地繞著他們轉。最後這些人把爸爸給惹毛了!

《艾爾密特矮林》塑造出特殊的氛圍與令人不安的氣息,以抒情的方式評論當代社會以及一個家庭在其中搖搖欲墜的生活,並且探索父子之間的深刻連結。

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

Fresh and distinctive writing from an exciting new voice in fiction, Elmet is an unforgettable novel about family, as well as a beautiful meditation on landscape.

Daniel is heading north. He is looking for someone. The simplicity of his early life with Daddy and Cathy has turned sour and fearful. They lived apart in the house that Daddy built for them with his bare hands. They foraged and hunted. When they were younger, Daniel and Cathy had gone to school. But they were not like the other children then, and they were even less like them now. Sometimes Daddy disappeared, and would return with a rage in his eyes. But when he was at home he was at peace. He told them that the little copse in Elmet was theirs alone. But that wasn't true. Local men, greedy and watchful, began to circle like vultures. All the while, the terrible violence in Daddy grew.

Atmospheric and unsettling, Elmet is a lyrical commentary on contemporary society and one family's precarious place in it, as well as an exploration of how deep the bond between father and child can go.
