內容簡介

魔幻的說書人,魔幻現實主義,苦樂參半的提示。──邁阿密先驅報。
引人入勝,橫跨70年喧囂的世界歷史。

紐約雜誌、華爾街日報、娛樂周刊、出版家周刊、赫芬頓郵報各大媒體共同推崇2015年最值得期待的小說之一:紐約時報暢銷書作家伊莎貝阿言德的作品The Japanese Lover,從二次世界大戰穿越今日,從波蘭到舊金山,多代同堂的愛情史詩,氣勢磅礡。

1939年納粹的魔掌已伸入波蘭,父母不得不將Alma Belasco送去她叔叔的舊金山豪宅,在那裡,她遇上了日本花匠的兒子,情竇初開,正是美好,卻因珍珠港事件,美日戰爭的對立,成千上萬的日裔美人要遷居讓美國政府管理的拘留所,讓這段單純的情戀染上複雜的顏色……跨越七十年的愛情,在Alma的晚年才慢慢揭曉。她筆下的女主人公,對愛情忠貞不渝,深明大義,獨立自主,堅貞不屈;男性角色則抱有社會主義的理想,必定溫柔,且甘願為心愛的女人赴湯蹈火。透過愛情來探索命運之手,也因為有愛,能飽受所有折磨,堅持到最後。

Isabel Allende伊莎貝阿言德,繼1982年作品《精靈之屋》曾改拍成電影The House of the Spirits《金色豪門》,再度創作具有里程碑意義的作品,感人肺腑,難怪各大評論家皆引領期待,多所讚譽。

From New York Times and internationally bestselling author Isabel Allende, an exquisitely crafted love story and multigenerational epic that sweeps from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during the Second World War.

In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis, young Alma Belasco’s parents send her away to live in safety with an aunt and uncle in their opulent mansion in San Francisco. There, as the rest of the world goes to war, she encounters Ichimei Fukuda, the quiet and gentle son of the family’s Japanese gardener. Unnoticed by those around them, a tender love affair begins to blossom. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the two are cruelly pulled apart as Ichimei and his family—like thousands of other Japanese Americans—are declared enemies and forcibly relocated to internment camps run by the United States government. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love that they are forever forced to hide from the world.

Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to come to terms with her own troubled past, meets the elderly woman and her grandson, Seth, at San Francisco’s charmingly eccentric Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, eventually learning about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly seventy years.

Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover explores questions of identity, abandonment, redemption, and the unknowable impact of fate on our lives. Written with the same attention to historical detail and keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits, The Japanese Lover is a profoundly moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.
