內容簡介

媲美《如果我們的世界消失了》以及《雪地裡的女孩》的初試啼聲之作,兩個局外人讓人難以忘懷、縈繞心頭的故事。

「Good Morning, Midnight是一部非凡的、天才橫溢的首發小說,Lily Brooks-Dalton是一個荒涼空間的神祕編年史家,不管這個空間是冷酷無邊的宇宙抑或是人心的最深處。」
--獲歐普拉讀書俱樂部年度選書Railroad Underground作者/Colson Whitehead

Augustine是一個上了年紀、對星辰著迷的傑出天文學家。過去幾年,他在地球各處遙遠的邊緣紮營,對著天空研究,努力要找出宇宙生成的證明。他最近一次的紮營,是在北極圈的研究中心。當地發生了一件災難,科學家們被迫撤離,Augustine卻執拗地要待下去完成他的工作。大家都離開後,Augustine發現了一個神祕的孩子Iris,當無線電波變得悄然無聲,他們就真的是孤零零的兩個人了。

在同一個時間,太空任務專家Sullivan正搭著”乙太號”從木星返回地球的航道。這些太空人是第一批如此深入太空的人類,為了任務,Sullivan拋下女兒、結束婚姻,她對於這樣的犧牲內心是平靜的。任務到目前為止還算成功,但是當太空管制中心變得無聲無息,Sullivan與組員們不得不懷疑是否還能回到地球。

Augustine與Sullivan在令人生畏卻美麗的景象裡,面對的是一個不確定的未來,他們的故事以深刻且意想不到的結果漸漸地交織在一起。如水晶般透徹的文筆,Good Morning, Midnight提出了至關重要的問題:在世界的盡頭留下了什麼?如何使生命展現意義?Lily Brooks-Dalton動人的首作,是關於愛的力量與人心勇敢的冥想。

Augustine, a brilliant, ageing scientist, is consumed by the stars. For years he has scanned the
universe, trying to quantify infinity, to look back at the beginning of time itself. When news of a catastrophic event arrives at the remote research centre in the Arctic circle where he works and the researchers are evacuated, he insists on staying behind. But shortly after the last airlift departs, Augustine discovers a mysterious child - Iris. As time wears on, Augustine is unable to establish contact with the outside world. They are alone.

Time means very little in deep space. Mission Specialist Sullivan, a divorced astronaut and mother, is aboard the Aether, on its return flight from Jupiter. They are the first human beings to delve this deep into space and it has changed the crew. At last Sully feels at peace with the sacrifices she has made - the daughter she's left behind, the marriage she couldn't save. But suddenly, inexplicably, the Aether loses all contact with Mission Control.

Faced with the cold, barren sweep of the Arctic and the vast silence of space, how will they live? What will they be living for?
