內容簡介

2015年女性文學獎(Baileys Prize)提名、亞馬遜當月最佳暢銷書、入選英國《衛報》首作獎初選名單

作者Sara Taylor一鳴驚人的處女之作,打造一個令人難忘的祕境海岸,故事內容交錯謀殺、仇女及挑戰道德極限

「精湛的作品,Taylor是一個完美的說書人,描繪出宛如真實的貧困南方鄉下。這本作品深深地勾住你的心,令你難以放下書本。」─《英國泰晤士報》

歡迎來到這個隱藏於世界一隅的祕境,一個由眾多小島集結而成的特殊海岸,到處長滿蔥綠的長青植物及野生小馬,未開發的貝殼沙路及搖搖欲墜的不起眼小屋,而黑暗的沼澤中卻又隱藏著未婚懷孕的秘密、驚人的謀殺事件、即將引發的風暴及神秘的黑魔法...。在這個海岸中,以世世代代以此為家的女人們聞名,這些女人兇悍而勇敢,有些人將此地視為最佳的避難所,卻也是某些人的夢靨,幾百年來這些人在此地生根、逃離卻又再度回巢。這些女人在這個所謂的「家鄉」面對著家庭暴力、原始的蠻荒生活及貧窮,她們渴望自由,期待為摯愛追尋安全感。13個短篇故事彼此交錯關聯,所有令人心碎及幸福的故事都在這個神祕的海岸發生著。這是一本獨特且精湛的作品,讀者將跟隨這13個故事一起成長、歡笑與哭泣,直到小說的最後一頁。

The Shore. A collection of small islands sticking out from the coast of Virginia into the Atlantic Ocean that has been home to generations of fierce and resilient women. Sanctuary to some but nightmare to others, it’s a place they’ve inhabited, fled, and returned to for hundreds of years. From a brave girl’s determination to protect her younger sister as methamphetamine ravages their family, to a lesson in summoning storm clouds to help end a drought, these women struggle against domestic violence, savage wilderness, and the corrosive effects of poverty and addiction to secure a sense of well-being for themselves and for those they love.

Their interconnecting stories form a deeply affecting legacy of two island families, illuminating the small miracles and miseries of a community of outsiders, and the bonds of blood and fate that connect them all. 

Dreamlike and yet impossibly real, profound and playful, The Shore is a richly unique, breathtakingly ambitious and accomplished debut novel by a young writer of astonishing gifts.
