內容簡介

一本驚艷四座的處女作,一位極具天賦的小說家於焉誕生!

Will從來沒有去過家門外的世界,但至少不是自他有記憶以來。他也幾乎未曾認識他母親以外的人。患有懼曠症的他一想到要開啟家門就覺得嚴重焦慮與恐慌。在屋裡的房間是他們的小小世界,其中一個房間有著異國風情的名字,並充斥Will的藝術創作。

即便在他母親的抗議之下,他仍執意離開他的囚籠,Will藏身在使他遠離危險的安全帽和牙套之中外出冒險,終於遇見與他結為好友的滑板男孩Jonah!

Will熱情歡迎他的新世界到來,他的恐懼消失,他的身體逐漸強壯,但是人生總是很快變得複雜。一名當地男孩突然失蹤,Will和Jonah想一探究竟,從此開始了一趟不尋常的冒險──也使得Will遠離過往自我封閉的世界,品嘗成長時而甜美、時而苦澀的過程。


A heartfelt and wondrous debut lauded by Philipp Meyer (New York Times bestselling author of The Son) as "astonishing", introducing a supremely gifted and exciting new voice in fiction.

Will has never been to the outside, at least not since he can remember. 

And he has certainly never got to know anyone other than his mother, a fiercely loving yet wildly eccentric agoraphobe who drowns in panic at the thought of opening the front door. Their little world comprises only the rooms in their home, each named for various exotic locales and filled with Will's art projects. But soon the confines of his world close in on him. 

Despite his mother's protests, Will ventures outside clad in a protective helmet and braces himself for danger. He eventually meets and befriends Jonah, a quiet boy who introduces him to skateboarding.

Will welcomes his new world with enthusiasm, his fears fading and his body hardening with each new bump, scrape and fall. But life quickly gets complicated. When a local boy goes missing, Will and Jonah want to uncover what happened. They embark on an extraordinary adventure that pulls Will far from the confines of his closed-off world and into the throes of early adulthood and the dangers that everyday life offers. 

If I Fall, If I Die is a remarkable debut full of dazzling prose and unforgettable characters, as well as a poignant and heartfelt depiction of coming of age.
