內容簡介

一頓晚餐,四個賓客,兩個家庭,六個人生,
為了你的所愛,你願意多少沉淪?

看似平凡卻深受精神疾患所苦的保羅,帶著妻子克萊兒前往一間高檔餐廳赴約,同席的是有可能成為荷蘭總理的哥哥賽吉與妻子芭比。表面是一場溫馨的家庭歡聚,背後卻是山雨欲來風滿樓的人性糾葛:他們的兒子米謝爾與瑞克捲入一樁殺人案件,派對結束後兩人失手將一名女街友凌虐致死,上傳至YouTube的犯案影片將成為殺人兇手的鐵證,這場晚宴,正是為了這場犯罪而生;兩對父母,該如何為兒子的生命負責?面對有可能碎裂家庭、扭轉人生的精緻料理,他們該如何選擇? 又該如何下嚥?

作者Herman Koch精心擘劃一次餐宴,從開胃菜、前菜、主菜到甜點,循序漸進的在每一道料理間交織四位賓客的心機交鋒,關於扭曲的親情、無恥的自私、醜惡的偽善,種種人性中最灰暗的質地,在Herman Koch筆下,成為一抹抹深刻的複雜滋味。

註:好萊塢電影版將由Cate Blanchett執導。
 
"A European Gone Girl." —The Wall Street Journal

An internationally bestselling phenomenon: the darkly suspenseful, highly controversial tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives—all over the course of one meal.

It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened.
     Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.
     Skewering everything from parenting values to pretentious menus to political convictions, this novel reveals the dark side of genteel society and asks what each of us would do in the face of unimaginable tragedy.
