內容簡介

關於愛、寂寞和勇於放手一搏的動人故事

「爆笑卻又迷人。」─《莎士比亞三姐妹》作者伊蓮諾‧布朗

 

有時候你就是得勇於放手一搏,才能找到真自我

 

Andrew為人生煩惱不已。

 

多年來他在公共衛生部門工作,他的工作內容是拜訪那些孤獨死去者的家中,搜尋他們的遺物以找尋是否有親屬可通知死訊。雖然做著如此悲傷的工作內容,好在他還有美滿的家庭生活陪伴,但這是他多年來營造的假象。事實上他只是一個孤單的中年男子,過著平凡而自在的獨居生活。

 

直到他遇到了Peggy。她像一股清新的涼風吹進沉悶的辦公室生活,她的出現讓Andrew對平凡的生活燃起希望與熱情。

 

他該告訴Peggy自己獨居且單身的真相嗎?一旦說出真相也可能讓他失去一切。20多年來,Andrew的善意謊言一直讓他安然渡過職場生活,但他卻忘了人生中最重要的事:如何為自己而活。或許Peggy出現,是他改變人生現況的最好開始。


Smart, darkly funny, and life-affirming, How Not to Die Alone is the bighearted debut novel we all need, for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, it's a story about love, loneliness, and the importance of taking a chance when we feel we have the most to lose.


Andrew's been feeling stuck.

For years he's worked a thankless public health job, searching for the next of kin of those who die alone. Luckily, he goes home to a loving family every night. At least, that's what his coworkers believe.

Then he meets Peggy.

A misunderstanding has left Andrew trapped in his own white lie and his lonely apartment. When new employee Peggy breezes into the office like a breath of fresh air, she makes Andrew feel truly alive for the first time in decades.

Could there be more to life than this?

But telling Peggy the truth could mean losing everything. For twenty years, Andrew has worked to keep his heart safe, forgetting one important thing: how to live. Maybe it's time for him to start.
