內容簡介

曼布克獎得主繼《Netherland》又一黑色幽默新作,充滿戲謔及富含哲理的故事內容

一個紐約律師巧遇大學時期的死黨,意外接受了一份不尋常且遠在杜拜的新工作──為一個富可敵國卻又個性乖戾的富豪家族擔任高級管家。為了跳脫與女友分手的傷痛並擁有一個全新的開始,他接受了這份工作,但卻開始懷疑自己只是從一個不堪的深淵逃離到另一個地獄。儘管盡忠職守,卻常常對於新老闆的指令及愚蠢炫富行為感到無奈,他感覺自己就要被他所看管的「狗屋」所套牢,諸多滑稽荒謬的事件,都將再度展現作者說故事的高超功力。

愛爾蘭暢銷書作家約瑟夫・歐尼爾(Joseph O’Neill)畢業於劍橋大學法律系,精通英語、法語及荷蘭語。暢銷小說《Netherland》更獲得英國曼布克獎。而回憶錄《Blood-Dark Track: A Family History》也被紐約時報選為年度最值得關注的書籍。約瑟夫・歐尼爾的作品充滿細膩的觀察及對於情感折磨描述。

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOLINGER EVERYMAN WODEHOUSE PRIZE FOR COMIC FICTION

The first novel from Joseph O’Neill since NETHERLAND.

‘O’Neill, in this book, has come of age as a novelist … a comic masterpiece … as mordantly funny as the best of stand-up comedy … Superb’ John Banville, New York Review of Books

In 2007, a New York attorney bumps into an old college buddy – and accepts his friend’s offer of a job in Dubai, as the overseer of an enormous family fortune. Haunted by the collapse of his relationship and hoping for a fresh start, our strange hero begins to suspect that he has exchanged one inferno for another.

A funny and wholly original work of international literature, ‘The Dog’ is led by a brilliantly entertaining anti-hero. Imprisoned by his endless powers of reasoning, hemmed in by the ethical demands of globalized life, he is fatefully drawn towards the only logical response to our confounding epoch.
