內容簡介

英國成就最高、名氣最響、得獎最多的小說家之一,《狼廳》作者希拉蕊‧曼特爾的最新作品,以短篇小說寫出當代的英格蘭樣貌。

希拉蕊‧曼特爾(Hilary Mantel)素來以人物塑造精準、筆鋒犀利、機鋒處處而見長,在本書中這樣的例子俯拾皆是。鬼故事、吸血鬼故事、類回憶錄、家族迷你史詩、社會剪影,每篇故事都充滿了她稀奇古怪的幽默感,讓讀者心裡反思不斷、迴盪再三。

曼特爾毫不留情了寫出了性別、婚姻、種族、家庭、性等種種議題,直指人性核心;劇情多元紛呈、毫不老套,保證你猜不到,只可能嚇一跳。每個故事都只要牢牢數句,就能掐住你的要害,將你徹底收服。

這是一個才氣縱橫的作家最成熟、最顛峰的作品。

希拉蕊‧曼特爾,英國作家,作品橫跨個人回憶錄、短篇小說、歷史小說、散文等文類,曾兩次獲得布克獎殊榮。2009年《狼廳》(Wolf Hall)描寫亨利八世宮廷政爭、克倫威爾(Thomas Cromwell)崛起的過程;以此獲得第一座布克獎之後,2012年又以此系列第二集《狼廳二部曲:血季》(Bring up the Dead Bodies)再獲布克獎。

A brilliant – and rather transgressive – collection of short stories from the double Man Booker Prize-winning author of ‘Wolf Hall’ and ‘Bring Up the Bodies’.

Hilary Mantel is one of Britain’s most accomplished and acclaimed writers. In these ten bracingly subversive tales, all her gifts of characterisation and observation are fully engaged, summoning forth the horrors so often concealed behind everyday façades. Childhood cruelty is played out behind the bushes in ‘Comma’; nurses clash in ‘Harley Street’ over something more than professional differences; and in the title story, staying in for the plumber turns into an ambiguous and potentially deadly waiting game.

Whether set in a claustrophobic Saudi Arabian flat or on a precarious mountain road in Greece, these stories share an insight into the darkest recesses of the spirit. Displaying all of Mantel’s unmistakable style and wit, they reveal a great writer at the peak of her powers.
