內容簡介

深刻、難以言喻的神奇。──紐約時報書評。
優雅的冒險,回溯19世紀,關於那個時代的社會與女人的悲痛。──Imogen Robertson, The Paris Winter作者。

走進Lucy Ann Lobdell世界前,先來了解作者William Klaber掉入她故事的緣由,只能說是因緣具足,80年代初,他和妻子在紐約買了位於Basket Creek的房子,二十多年過去了,忽然有個名叫Jack Niflot的研究員告訴Klaber,160年前Lucy Ann Lobdell就住在他附近,鬼魂經常出沒在他的房子,同時交給Klaber相關的研究資料……就這樣,促成了這本交織真實與虛擬的歷史小說。

19世紀的紐約州北不,還是相當保守且封閉的年代,Lucy Ann Lobdell大膽而直率的隨身攜帶一支步槍,在酒吧坐下,提出同男人一樣賺錢的工作需求,不僅如此,她穿著她喜歡的服飾,愛她想愛的任何人,還同一個男人一樣照顧家庭。儘管她的獨立自主讓人刮目相看,但她還是不得不忍受公眾蔑視和……記者出身的作者,捕獲一個好故事的靈感,開啟一個女性勇敢的線索,進一步描述在眾多眼睛所見的表相底下,被攻擊是叛亂的女人,潛藏背後的時代意義。

At a time when women did not commonly travel unescorted, carry a rifle, sit down in bars, or have romantic liaisons with other women, Lucy Lobdell boldly set forth to earn men's wages. Lucy Lobdell did all of these things in a personal quest to work and be paid, to wear what she wanted, and love whomever she cared to. But to gain those freedoms she had to endure public scorn and wrestle with a sexual identity whose vocabulary had yet to be invented. In this riveting historical novel, William Klaber captures the life of a brave woman who saw well beyond her era. This is the fictionalized account of Lucy's foray into the world of men and her inward journey to a new sexual identity. It is her promised memoir as hear and recorded a century later by William Klaber, an upstream neighbour. Meticulously researched and told with compassion and respect, this is historical fiction at its best.
