內容簡介

《穿條紋衣的男孩》作者John Boyne最新力作。

本書是John Boyne目前為止最超然的作品,透過一個平庸的男性之眼,我們看見了1940年代至今的愛爾蘭。這本讓你笑又讓你哭的小說,提醒我們人類靈魂的救贖力量。

Cyril Avery並非真正Avery家的人,而且他將來也不會是,這是他的養父母告訴他的。如果他不姓Avery,那麼他是誰呢?

Cyril的母親是個被愛爾蘭鄉村所放逐的未婚少女,經由救贖教會修女的介入,被一對住在都柏林的中產階級夫婦所收養。這對夫婦對Cyril漠不關心,他就這麼漂泊在這個世界,直到與Julian Woodbead建立了友誼,才有了脆弱的安定之感,而Julian是個極有魅力且危險的人。

命運與巧合的慈悲,他將耗費一生的時間,來找出自己的身世,超過70年的歲月,他努力地要找到一個身分認同、一個家、一個國還有好多好多…。

Cyril Avery is not a real Avery or at least that’s what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn’t a real Avery, then who is he?

Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead.

At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from – and over his three score years and ten, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country and much more.

In this, Boyne's most transcendent work to date, we are shown the story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man. The Heart's Invisible Furies is a novel to make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit.
