內容簡介

繼曼布克獎提名作品Swimming Home之後,Deborah Levy再次以Hot Milk入圍2016年曼布克獎初選名單。狂暴慾望、原始衝動、如超現實般具有內在邏輯的迷宮,檢視女性的憤怒與性慾,探索母性奇特如怪物般的本質,對母女關係的試煉達到了引爆點。

「太棒了…,讓這本書如此之好是因為Levy女士了不起的想像力,如詩般的語言,日常中發現驚奇的方式,以少說多,以及在情緒感染力、危險與幽默中優雅移動的能力,創造出如Sofia這個有趣且讓人驚豔的角色。處在Sofia富有洞察力且不斷探詢的內心,是一件讓人愉悅的事。」
--《紐約時報》(The New York Times)

「強而有力的小說,Levy以一種讓人想起Virginia Woolf的清晰感,創造出有內在生命的作品。…讓人目瞪口呆、動彈不得。」
--《衛報》(Guardian)

夾在我腋下的的手提電腦從保護套中滑到了水泥地上,破裂的螢幕如散開的星辰。隔壁髒亂的小鎮有個男人是修理電腦的,他可以把新的螢幕寄來這裡,不過得花一個月的時間。問題是,我在這裡會待上一個月嗎?

我母親睡在隔壁房間的蚊帳裡,她醒來後定會大聲咆嘯:「Sofia!給我一杯水!」我當然會給她一杯水,但不久後它就會成為一杯不是我母親要的那種的水。

兩個女人來到了西班牙一座村莊,一個夾在沙漠與大海之間、如夢似幻的地方,她們正在尋求醫療上的建議與救贖。其中一個因怪病飽受痛苦,自發性的癱瘓把她困在輪椅上,雙腿完全無用。另一個是前者的女兒Sofia,她花了數年的時間,心不甘情不願地努力探查這個奧秘,以便了解她母親的疾病。

被沙漠的酷熱與行走其中的迷人村民所圍繞著,當母親接受由Gomez醫生所發明的奇怪療程時,Sofia只能在旁等待。為這個頑固且有可能是想像而來的疾病找療方,同時也被反覆無常的遊戲給困住了,Sofia最後要面對並妥協的是她身分認同裡迥然不同的生命碎片。

A richly mythic, colour-saturated tale of mothers and daughters from the Man Booker-shortlisted author of Swimming Home

Today I dropped my laptop on the concrete floor. It was tucked under my arm and slid out of its black rubber sheath, landing screen-side down. The digital page shattered. Apparently there's a man in the next flyblown town who mends computers. He could send off for a new screen, which would take a month to arrive. Will I still be here in a month?

My mother is sleeping under a mosquito net in the next room. Soon she will wake up and shout, 'Sofia, get me a glass of water', and I will get her water and it will be the wrong sort of water. And then after a while I will leave her and return to gaze at the shattered starfield of my screen.

Two women arrive in a Spanish village - a dreamlike place caught between the desert and the ocean - seeking medical advice and salvation. One of the strangers suffers from a mysterious illness: spontaneous paralysis confines her to a wheelchair, her legs unusable. The other, her daughter Sofia, has spent years playing the reluctant detective in this mystery, struggling to understand her mother's illness.

Surrounded by the oppressive desert heat and the mesmerising figures who move through it, Sofia waits while her mother undergoes the strange programme of treatments invented by Dr Gomez. Searching for a cure to a defiant and quite possibly imagined disease, ever more entangled in the seductive, mercurial games of those around her, Sofia finally comes to confront and reconcile the disparate fragments of her identity.

Hot Milk is a labyrinth of violent desires, primal impulses, and surreally persuasive internal logic. Examining female rage and sexuality, Deborah Levy's dazzling new novel explores the strange and monstrous nature of motherhood, testing the bonds of parent and child to breaking point
