內容簡介

普立茲小說獎得主《時間裡的癡人》作者珍妮佛.伊根睽違七年,回歸傳統小說的敘事方式,帶來黑色電影風格的歷史小說!

在二十世紀上半葉的美國布魯克林,第二次世界大戰爆發
身負養家重擔的她,與多年前掌握家中經濟的神秘男人相遇
她決心找出父親失蹤的秘密……

十二歲的女孩安娜,陪伴著爸爸到曼哈頓海灘、一位名叫德克斯特的富翁家中,他是夜店老闆、也是黑幫份子,他們簽下秘密條約,她則從大人的言談間,發現這個神祕的男人,掌握著她們家的經濟與生存……然而,安娜十九歲時,她的爸爸失蹤了,而第二次世界大戰隨即爆發,由於男性都上戰場打仗,她得以在布魯克林造船廠工作,成為第一批女性潛水員。這是項危險的工作,但她必須撫養媽媽與重度身心障礙的妹妹,是家中唯一的經濟來源。一日,她竟在夜店偶然與德克斯特相遇,開啟她尋找爸爸失蹤之謎的契機,也漸漸理解爸爸究竟是什麼樣的人……

在風起雲湧的時代裡,來自不同世界與生活圈的角色產生交會,男女身分也產生變革。珍妮佛.伊根繼《時間裡的癡人》,睽違七年推出全新作品,已入圍2017年美國國家圖書獎小說類獎項。不同於前作的實驗性寫作手法,回歸傳統小說的敘事方式。如同所有故事在時間中流動,作者以海岸與水的意象,平衡沉重的歷史細節,藉主角的活動探討兩兩相對的概念:不管是力量與脆弱、深度與表面、過去與未來,或是生與死,以黑色電影的風格,再度展現純熟的寫作功力。

The long-awaited, daring, and magnificent novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad.

Manhattan Beach opens in Brooklyn during the Great Depression. Anna Kerrigan, nearly twelve years old, accompanies her father to the house of Dexter Styles, a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family.

Years later, her father has disappeared and the country is at war. Anna works at the Brooklyn Naval Yard, where women are allowed to hold jobs that had always belonged to men. She becomes the first female diver, the most dangerous and exclusive of occupations, repairing the ships that will help America win the war. She is the sole provider for her mother, a farm girl who had a brief and glamorous career with the Ziegfeld Follies, and her lovely, severely disabled sister. At a nightclub, she chances to meet Dexter Styles again, and she begins to understand the complexity of her father's life, the reasons he might have vanished.

Mesmerizing, hauntingly beautiful, with the pace and atmosphere of a noir thriller, Egan's first historical novel is a masterpiece, a deft, startling, intimate exploration of a transformative moment in the lives of women and men, America and the world. Manhattan Beach is a spectacular novel by one of the greatest writers of our time.
