內容簡介

暢銷小說《失控》(Transmission)與《模仿者》(Impressionist)作者哈瑞伊.昆祖魯(Hari Kunzru)最新小說。一本關於鬼魂的故事,一樁恐怖的謀殺之謎,一篇即時的種族沉思錄,也是一封給被遺忘的美國音樂天才們的情書。

「昆祖魯完成了他關於種族史與白人特權的研究工作,但是這小說的聲調也因為他對音樂敏銳的描述而升高,這些描述具體又極具魅力,所以你就可以理解為什麼小說中命運多舛、被誤導的主角們淪陷在這樣的音樂中。一部措辭優美又新穎的故事,精準地連結了舊時藍調與現代詩歌。」--《柯克斯評論》星級推薦

Seth是個古怪又害羞的年輕人,Carter則擁有大筆的信託基金、掌握了最新的流行事物,兩個完全不搭軋的人,卻有一個共同的迷戀:音樂。Seth渴望未來有所成就,Carter卻正陷入過去當中。當Seth意外在公園錄下一個不知名歌手的聲音,Carter把錄音放到網路上,並聲稱這是1920年代早已佚失的藍調音樂時,有個收藏家上門了,並指控他們盜用的音樂其來有自。這兩個二十幾歲的白人青年加上Carter惹上麻煩的姊妹Leonie,被迫拉進這個國家黑暗的中心,遭遇了被貪婪、忌妒、復仇與剝削的歷史當中…。

A feverish new tale from the bestselling author of The Impressionist: two ambitious young musicians are drawn into a dark underworld, haunted by the ghosts of a repressive past

Two twenty-something New Yorkers: Seth, awkward and shy, and Carter, the trust fund hipster. They have one thing in common: an obsession with music. Rising fast on the New York producing scene, they stumble across an old blues song long forgotten by history -- and everything starts to unravel. Carter is drawn far down a path that allows no return, and Seth has no choice but to follow his friend into the darkness.

Trapped in a game they don't understand, Hari Kunzru's characters move unsteadily across the chessboard, caught between black and white, performer and audience, righteous and forsaken. But we have been here before, oh so many times over, and the game always ends the same way . . .

Electrifying, subversive and wildly original, White Tears is a ghost story and a love story, a story about lost innocence and historical guilt. This unmissable novel penetrates the heart of a nation's darkness, encountering a suppressed history of greed, envy, revenge and exploitation, and holding a mirror up to the true nature of America today.
