內容簡介

Joyce Carol Oates擅長創造怪異、大氣勢的情節……記憶的迷宮是她鋪陳悲愴鬧劇的理想場所──Kirkus Review

Joyce Carol Oates被認為是1960年代以來最重要的美國小說家之一。
Them《他們》獲得美國國家圖書獎,Black Water (1992), What I Lived For (1994), 和 Blonde (2000) 被提名普利茲獎。

Oates不愧是National Medal of Humanities國家人文獎章得主,在她注重細節、洞悉人類心靈的天賦發揮淋漓盡致,每部作品都超越自己,這部自不例外。運用大量重複描述的字句,強調一次又一次的細節,展現她擅長的心理分析、內心獨白的意識流,略增本書閱讀的困難度,適合夜深人靜,專心沉靜。

在三十年的過程中,為情所困的瘋狂科學家,Margot,迷人、神秘、寂寞,陷入困境三十年,因為她愛上了充滿魅力的Elihu,全書在兩人複雜又懸疑的情色關係中,抽絲剝繭,試圖解開這男人的童年創傷……結構複雜、時空交錯、慷慨激昂的故事。

如果愛不能被記憶,那麼愛在哪裡?1965年,一個著名的神經學家遇見了一個具吸引力的研究對象,他無法保有原有的記憶,也無法儲存新的記憶,三年後,這位神經學家愛上了他的研究對象…。面對沒有記憶的男人,她對他的愛如何維持?充滿爭議與衝突的題材,令人思考婚姻與愛情關係。

In 1965, a young research scientist named Margot Sharpe meets Elihu Hoopes, the subject of her study, a handsome amnesiac who cannot remember anything beyond the last seventy seconds. Over the course of thirty years, the two embark on mirroring journeys of self-discovery. Margot, enthralled by her charming, mysterious, and deeply lonely patient, as well as her officious supervisor, attempts to unlock Eli’s shuttered memories of a childhood trauma without losing her own sense of identity in the process. And Eli, haunted by memories of an unknown girl’s body underneath the surface of a lake, pushes to finally know himself once again, despite potentially devastating consequences. As Margot and Eli meet over and over again, Joyce Carol Oates’ tightly written, nearly clinical prose propels the lives of these two characters forwards, both suspended in a dream-like, shadowy present, and seemingly balanced on the thinnest, sharpest of lines between past and future. Made vivid by Oates’ eye for detail and searing insight into the human psyche, The Man Without a Shadow is an eerie, ambitious, and structurally complex novel, as poignant as it is thrilling.
