內容簡介

◎ 《少年Pi的奇幻漂流》作者最新力作!

三段故事、三顆破碎的心、跨越三個時代,追尋人生的意義。延續《少年Pi的奇幻漂流》的魔幻寫實風格與豐富想像,Yann Martel在新作中,帶領讀者回到二十世紀的葡萄牙。 

在1904年的里斯本,名為Tomás的年輕男子發現一本古老的日誌。日誌裡的內容暗示,若他能找到一件重要古物,便能重新定義歷史。於是,他踏上一趟公路之旅,駕駛著歐洲早期的老式汽車,出發尋找這件寶物。

三十五年後,一位葡萄牙病理學家,著迷於作家克莉絲蒂推理小說中的謀殺謎團,卻發現自己也深陷於一樁謀殺謎團的中心,更莫名被捲入三十五年前Tomás追尋寶物的後果中。

又過了五十年,一位加拿大參議員,到葡萄牙北部的古老村莊尋求心靈慰藉,哀悼過世的妻子,卻意外與一隻黑猩猩成為好朋友。三段故事的碎片就此奇蹟似地產生連結,而這樁長達一世紀的尋求,也將會在此畫下令人意想不到的句點。

《The High Mountains of Portugal》作為一部當代寓言,探索愛與失落的真諦。充滿柔情、幽默感與驚喜,它帶領讀者經歷的,不僅是上世紀的葡萄牙公路之旅,更是探索人類靈魂的旅程。


The author of the bestselling Life of Pi returns to the storytelling power and luminous wisdom of his master novel.

In Lisbon in 1904, a young man named Tomás discovers an old journal. It hints at the existence of an extraordinary artifact that—if he can find it—would redefine history. Traveling in one of Europe’s earliest automobiles, he sets out in search of this strange treasure.
 
Thirty-five years later, a Portuguese pathologist devoted to the murder mysteries of Agatha Christie finds himself at the center of a mystery of his own and drawn into the consequences of Tomás’s quest.
 
Fifty years on, a Canadian senator takes refuge in his ancestral village in northern Portugal, grieving the loss of his beloved wife. But he arrives with an unusual companion: a chimpanzee. And there the century-old quest will come to an unexpected conclusion.
 
The High Mountains of Portugal—part quest, part ghost story, part contemporary fable—offers a haunting exploration of great love and great loss. Filled with tenderness, humor, and endless surprise, it takes the reader on a road trip through Portugal in the last century—and through the human soul.
