內容簡介

《紐約時報》、亞馬遜書店暢銷書
超過140萬人點閱、耶魯畢業生紅遍全球網路的最後演講
以精準文字探索人性最深處的孤寂,道出年輕世代的困惑與理想

「我們找不到一個詞來表達孤獨的相反意義。
如果有的話,我得說,那就是我此生所追求的;
那就是我衷心感激耶魯帶給我的感受,
也是我害怕明天一早醒來、畢業離開之後,即將失去的感受。」

才華洋溢的耶魯女大生,畢業後五天因意外驟逝
生前發表的最後一篇文章,吸引超過140萬人點閱
慧黠的文字詩意、大膽而力道十足
充分捕捉到年輕世代的希望、徬徨、孤寂、摸索與掙扎……

耶魯大學畢業生瑪麗娜‧基根,立志用生命當一個真正的作家,年僅22歲,已在身後留下豐富的創作,《孤獨的反義詞》這本書集結了她的短篇故事及隨筆共18篇,道出各種人物及形式的孤獨:猝逝的曖昧情人、空巢期的父母、駐守伊拉克的軍官、暗藏刺青的老婦、失聯潛艇的船員、擱淺的鯨魚……等,全然不落俗套,篇篇撼動人心。

2012年5月,瑪麗娜以優異成績畢業,前途一片光明燦爛。她創作的音樂劇即將在紐約國際藝穗節上演,知名雜誌《紐約客》也有一份工作等著她赴任。不幸的是,畢業後五天,一場車禍驟然奪走了這個才華洋溢的年輕生命。瑪麗娜畢業前夕發表的最後一篇文章〈孤獨的反義詞〉,在網路上被熱烈分享轉載,不僅是因為文中洋溢的無限可能性與現實的對比過於令人震驚惋惜,更在於她說中了廣大同代人的心聲,宛如《最後的演講》(The Last Lecture):什麼才是屬於我的志向與夢想?如何善用自己的才能為世界帶來改變?瑪麗娜的生命永遠停駐在2012年,而她遺留給世人的文字,將讓人心頭無可迴避地重重一震。

Marina Keegan's star was on the rise when she graduated from Yale in May 2012. She had a play that was to be produced at the New York International Fringe Festival and a job waiting for her at the New Yorker. Tragically, five days after graduation, Marina died in a car crash. 

As her family, friends and classmates, deep in grief, joined to create a memorial service for Marina, her unforgettable last essay for the Yale Daily News, 'The Opposite of Loneliness', went viral, receiving more than 1.4 million hits. She had struck a chord. 
Even though she was just 22 when she died, Marina left behind a rich, expansive trove of prose that, like her title essay, captures the hope, uncertainty and possibility of her generation. The Opposite of Loneliness is an assemblage of Marina's essays and stories that articulates the universal struggle we all face as we work out what we aspire to be and how we can harness our talents to make an impact on the world.
