內容簡介

戲如人生.人生如戲
失控的莎士比亞戲劇課!
當戲劇與現實的界線逐漸模糊、然後消失……

有如《金翅雀》作者唐娜.塔特首部作品《秘史》(The Secret History)
由莎士比亞悲劇交織而成的文學驚悚傑作!

奧利佛(Oliver Marks)剛獲得假釋,即將出獄。他因為謀殺罪名,在監獄裡度過十年寒暑,但他真的有罪嗎……?當年發生了什麼事?他的罪名中,埋藏了什麼樣的秘密與真相?一切都必須追溯回十年前那一部失控的戲劇!

十年前,奧利佛是專攻莎士比亞戲劇的大四學生。他與其他六名演員經過三年來的訓練、試鏡、激烈競爭與層層淘汰,成為少數能待到第四年的核心人物。他們是彼此的生活圈,平時對話夾雜莎劇中的對白,固定扮演角色的階級與身分,則與七人團體中的階級次序不謀而合,可謂戲如人生。不管是英雄、反派、暴君、蛇蠍美人、天真少女還是背景人物,都與他們常演出的角色兩相呼應。身為邊緣人物、總是演出次要角色的奧利佛,認為自己像是團體中的跟班……

直到指導老師兼導演出乎眾人意料,為了讓每個學生挑戰自己的極限,在《馬克白》的選角中將默認的角色分派打亂,卻也因此破壞團體中微妙的權力平衡!浮上檯面的權力鬥爭,轉化為嫉妒、憤怒與暴力,劇中角色的靈魂逐漸將他們吞噬,戲劇與現實世界的界線逐漸模糊、然後消失,甚至造成其中一人的死亡!

「像極了唐娜.塔特的《祕史》(The Secret History)。M. L. Rio閃閃發亮的首部作品,是一個層次豐富,關於愛、友情與迷戀的故事。
是喜劇也是悲劇,這本小說探問:人們以野心之名會願意做出什麼樣的犧牲。情節精巧、文字優美,《如果我們是反派》(If We Were Villains)將牢牢地吸引你到最後精彩的時刻。」--《紐約時報》暢銷書《安樂窩》(The Nest)作者/Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

「這是一本罕見、傑出的小說,生動地描繪了演藝學院封閉的世界,對友誼溫柔而痛苦的探索,也是一部真正讓人屏息的驚悚文學作品。我再怎麼推薦都不夠,等不及看M. L. Rio的下一部作品。」--《紐約時報》暢銷書《如果我們的世界消失了》(Station Eleven)作者/Emily St. John Mndel

“Much like Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, M. L. Rio’s sparkling debut is a richly layered story of love, friendship, and obsession...If We Were Villains will keep you riveted through its final, electrifying moments.”
―Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of The Nest

Oliver Marks has just served ten years in jail – for a murder he may or may not have committed. On the day he's released, he's greeted by the man who put him in prison. Detective Colborne is retiring, but before he does, he wants to know what really happened a decade ago.

As one of seven young actors studying Shakespeare at an elite arts college, Oliver and his friends play the same roles onstage and off: hero, villain, tyrant, temptress, ingénue, extra. But when the casting changes, and the secondary characters usurp the stars, the plays spill dangerously over into life, and one of them is found dead. The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet: convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless.

Intelligent, thrilling, and richly detailed, If We Were Villains is a captivating story of the enduring power and passion of words.
