內容簡介

2009年柑橘獎新進作家獎得主法蘭西絲卡.凱伊(Francesca Kay)最新小說。一個監聽他人生活卻幾乎沒有自己生活的男人,愛上了未曾謀面的女子,只因為她的聲音。

「曖昧歧義和劈開私密與公共世界的共用牆讓Francesca Kay著迷不已,她第三部小說的抒情主義與她得獎的首作An Equal Stillness截然不同,而她的第二部小說《聖堂的獻祭》(The Translation of the Bones),探索了所謂的瑪麗亞奇蹟與妄想心理…。這本最新小說的成功之處在於唯我意識的再現,尋找超越語言溝通的非語言交流。」
--《衛報》(The Guardian)

當Stephen Donaldson加入英國情報局時,原本期待的刺激、浪漫與新的局面並沒有發生。因為他的工作是監聽老共產黨員們之間的對話與各種未竟之革命,他對這份差事並沒有多少雀躍的心情,直到他被指派了一項名為”鳳凰”的極機密案件。其實他並關心鳳凰到底是不是間諜,他在意的是鳳凰妻子的聲音竟深深吸引著他。他知道她在哪工作,見過哪些人,她的心情決定彈奏什麼樣的鋼琴音樂,Stephen深信自己愛上了她,儘管從沒見過這個女人。

這是1981年的12月,炸彈爆炸著,冷戰持續中,新的戰爭近在咫尺,全英國瘋狂追著每周一次的電視影集《夢斷白莊》(Brideshead Revisited)。陷入危險的愛情又孤單一人,Stephen將自己置入了一個將永遠改變他生命,讓他暈眩的墜落之境。

What happens to a man who has his ear pressed to the lives of others but not much life of his own? When Stephen Donaldson joins the Institute, he anticipates excitement, romance and new status. Instead he gets the tape-recorded conversations of ancient communists and ineffectual revolutionaries, until the day he is assigned a new case: the ultra-secret PHOENIX. Is PHOENIX really working for a foreign power? Stephen hardly cares; it is the voice of the target's wife that mesmerises him.

This is December 1981. Bombs are exploding, a cold war is being waged, another war is just over the horizon and the nation is transfixed by weekly instalments of Brideshead Revisited. Dangerously in love, and lonely, Stephen sets himself up for a vertiginous fall that will forever change his life.

As beautiful as it is intense, The Long Room is the dazzling new novel from an award-winning writer. With her mastery of the perfect detail, Francesca Kay explores a mind under pressure and the compelling power of imagination.
