內容簡介

入圍美國國家圖書獎
《紐約時報》暢銷書


「Woodson毫不保留地述說了一個女孩變成女人的故事,讓人想起有史以來某些偉大的小說,例如:《布魯克林有棵樹》、《最藍的眼睛》,特別是以黑暗的詩意語言寫成的《家住芒果街》。」
-- 《時代雜誌》Sarah Begley

「Woodson竟然想起了無法記錄的,暗示了無法言說的事物。Another Brooklyn的另一個名字是詩。」
-- 《華盛頓郵報》

《紐約時報》暢銷書作家,以Brown Girl Dreaming 獲美國國家圖書青少年小說獎的知名童書作家Jacqueline Woodson 20年來第一部成人小說。

August偶遇多年不見的老友,啟動了遠在1970年代的回憶,將她帶到了友誼就是一切的時光與地點,雖然她們之間的友誼已經蕩然無存。對August和她的朋友們來說,布魯克林是一個讓她們相信自己是美麗、有天分和聰明的地方,她們漫步在社區街弄中,分享彼此的秘密,並且相信她們是有未來的。

但是在這充滿希望的表象之下,浮現的是另一個布魯克林,一個成年男人在黑暗走道尋找無辜女孩,夜晚鬧鬼,母親們消失的地方,一個父親們在宗教中找到希望的世界。

如同Louise Meriwether的現代經典,描述美國大蕭條時代在哈林區的貧窮黑人家庭小說Daddy Was a Number Runner,以及Dorothy Allison《來自卡羅萊納的私生女》,Jacqeuline Woodson的這本Another Brooklyn痛苦地闡述孩童不得不過渡到成年的形成期,也就是成長所帶來的應許與危險,精緻地描繪了連結四個年輕生命強而有力、永不磨滅卻又短暫的友誼。

National Book Award Finalist
New York Times Bestseller

The acclaimed New York Times bestselling and National Book Award–winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming delivers her first adult novel in twenty years.

Running into a long-ago friend sets memory from the 1970s in motion for August, transporting her to a time and a place where friendship was everything—until it wasn’t. For August and her girls, sharing confidences as they ambled through neighborhood streets, Brooklyn was a place where they believed that they were beautiful, talented, brilliant—a part of a future that belonged to them.

But beneath the hopeful veneer, there was another Brooklyn, a dangerous place where grown men reached for innocent girls in dark hallways, where ghosts haunted the night, where mothers disappeared. A world where madness was just a sunset away and fathers found hope in religion.

Like Louise Meriwether’s Daddy Was a Number Runner and Dorothy Allison’s Bastard Out of Carolina, Jacqueline Woodson’s Another Brooklyn heartbreakingly illuminates the formative time when childhood gives way to adulthood—the promise and peril of growing up—and exquisitely renders a powerful, indelible, and fleeting friendship that united four young lives.
