內容簡介

亞馬遜當月選書

一個極端生存者的養成計畫,結果是一個勇士?還是一個怪物?

Maude Julien的父母親認為將女人訓練成一個極端的生存者是畢生的使命,他們把Maude和世界隔離,告訴她任何情緒都是一種懦弱的表現,Maude學會了抓住通電的欄杆好幾分鐘,連眼睛都不會眨,還有坐在爬滿老鼠的牢房中一整個晚上動也不動(母親在她的衣服上縫上鈴鐺,一動就會被發現)。

Maude長期受到不公平的對待,在沒有熱水、足夠食物、關愛、友誼的環境下長大,但這也無法阻止她內心的成長,她會和偷偷看書時認識的書中夥伴、周遭的動物們交朋友。

終於在過了十幾年之後,外界力量介入,Maude抓住機會逃離狂熱分子的父母親,跑向自己與生俱來的自由。

Maude的故事述說了父母親對她的心理、生理控制,閱讀起來像是虛構的奇幻小說,卻是實實在在發生過的事,從第一頁就會抓住你直到Maude的逃脫才能真正鬆了一口氣。

AN AMAZON BEST BOOK OF THE MONTH.

For readers of Room and The Glass Castle, an astonishing memoir of one woman rising above an unimaginable childhood.


Maude Julien's parents were fanatics who believed it was their sacred duty to turn her into the ultimate survivor--raising her in isolation, tyrannizing her childhood and subjecting her to endless drills designed to "eliminate weakness." Maude learned to hold an electric fence for minutes without flinching, and to sit perfectly still in a rat-infested cellar all night long (her mother sewed bells onto her clothes that would give her away if she moved). She endured a life without heat, hot water, adequate food, friendship, or any kind of affectionate treatment.

But Maude's parents could not rule her inner life. Befriending the animals on the lonely estate as well as the characters in the novels she read in secret, young Maude nurtured in herself the compassion and love that her parents forbid as weak. And when, after more than a decade, an outsider managed to penetrate her family's paranoid world, Maude seized her opportunity.

By turns horrifying and magical, The Only Girl in the World is a story that will grip you from the first page and leave you spellbound, a chilling exploration of psychological control that ends with a glorious escape.
