內容簡介

國際暢銷書《建築師的學徒》作者艾莉芙.夏法克(Elif Shafak),又一精采之作。一張拍立得相片,勾起了主角不願回憶、夾雜著女性情誼、宗教與性別衝突的過往。

Peri,是個已婚、富有的土耳其婦人,正在往伊斯坦堡海邊別墅晚宴的路上時,一個乞丐搶了她的手提包,當Peri奮力搶回時,一張拍立得相片掉落到地上,這是三個年輕女性與一位大學教授的合照 - 那是Peri極度想忘卻的過去與愛。

當Peri來到了晚宴現場,逡巡著室內所散發出的緊張感,這個城市位於東西方的交界處,同時也是宗教與世俗、富有與貧窮的交界。恐怖份子正在城中各處發動攻擊,而晚宴卻瀰漫著不該生出的豪奢感。Peri的心被幾乎失逸的拍立得照片勾起的回憶所占滿,那是她第一次被送到牛津念書。在那裡,她與迷人、好冒險、完全被西方同化的伊朗女孩Shirin,還有Mona,一個虔誠的埃及與美國混血的女孩,成了朋友。她們爭論著伊斯蘭教與女權主義,共同的話題是迷人又受爭議的Azur教授,他以非正統的方式教導何謂神性。

當恐怖攻擊越來越近,也激起了Peri憶起那個將她們拆散的醜聞…。


The stunning, timely new novel from the acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of The Architect's Apprentice and The Bastard of Istanbul.

Peri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground -- an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past -- and a love -- Peri had tried desperately to forget.

Three Daughters of Eve is set over an evening in contemporary Istanbul, as Peri arrives at the party and navigates the tensions that simmer in this crossroads country between East and West, religious and secular, rich and poor. Over the course of the dinner, and amidst an opulence that is surely ill-begotten, terrorist attacks occur across the city. Competing in Peri's mind however are the memories invoked by her almost-lost polaroid, of the time years earlier when she was sent abroad for the first time, to attend Oxford University. As a young woman there, she had become friends with the charming, adventurous Shirin, a fully assimilated Iranian girl, and Mona, a devout Egyptian-American. Their arguments about Islam and feminism find focus in the charismatic but controversial Professor Azur, who teaches divinity, but in unorthodox ways. As the terrorist attacks come ever closer, Peri is moved to recall the scandal that tore them all apart.

Elif Shafak is the number one bestselling novelist in her native Turkey, and her work is translated and celebrated around the world. In Three Daughters of Eve, she has given us a rich and moving story that humanizes and personalizes one of the most profound sea changes of the modern world.
