內容簡介

獲2015年曼 布克獎提名,一部關於印度宗教、愛與暴力的直言之作!

Jarmuli,印度一個臨海的寺廟鎮,到處都是朝聖者、印度僧侶與教徒聚會所,它曾經是Nomita與一群年輕女孩的棲身之地。大約在六、七歲時,Nomita全家遭到屠殺,只有她僥倖地存活下來。提供庇護所的是一位在地方上受人尊敬的宗教領袖,但發生在這聚會所的性侵事件卻層出不窮。Nomita 12歲時被一位挪威婦女收養,長大後回到故鄉探索一支影片,想找到關於她過往經歷的真相,也順道與印度作個了結,以便開始新的人生。

Vidya, Gauri 與Latika 住在加爾各答,彼此是認識了超過50年的朋友。三個老婦決定在垂暮之年來趟5天的Jarmuli之旅,只為了要再見到那女孩一面。老婦們雇了一個年輕的寺廟導遊,他卻在禁忌之愛裡發現了狂喜。

在小鎮靜謐的表面下,湧動著邪惡與暴力,他們的生命交織且碰撞著。在忠誠、暴力、友情與恐懼中,意想不到的連結浮現了...。

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2015 AND WINNER OF THE 2016 DSC PRIZE FOR SOUTH ASIAN LITERATURE

A stark and unflinching novel by a spellbinding storyteller, about religion, love and violence in the modern world.

A train stops at a railway station. A young woman jumps off. She has wild hair, sloppy clothes, a distracted air. She looks Indian, yet she is somehow not. The sudden violence of what happens next leaves the other passengers gasping.

The train terminates at Jarmuli, a temple town by the sea. Here, among pilgrims, priests and ashrams, three old women disembark only to encounter the girl once again. What is someone like her doing in this remote corner, which attracts only worshippers?

Over the next five days, the old women live out their long-planned dream of a holiday together; their temple guide finds ecstasy in forbidden love; and the girl is joined by a photographer battling his own demons.

The full force of the evil and violence beneath the serene surface of the town becomes evident when their lives overlap and collide. Unexpected connections are revealed between devotion and violence, friendship and fear, as Jarmuli is revealed as a place with a long, dark past that transforms all who encounter it.
