內容簡介

「出色……熟練,又有娛樂性」─英國衛報

「一本精采到讓人愛不釋手的小說」─出版家周刊

平曲是一位當代知名畫家貝爾的私生子,貝爾夏天到歐洲度假的時候認識了平曲的母親,而平曲也只有在貝爾到歐洲避暑的時候才能見到父親,他對父親敬愛同時也很恐懼。

長大後平曲努力試著要獲得貝爾的注意力,一開始他也想當個畫家,但沒有成功,之後輾轉到了倫敦成了一位教授義大利文的老師。

在貝爾眾多的孩子中,平曲最受信任,在貝爾老年,將自己的作品交託給平曲,希望他可以做為作品的監督人,平曲因此可以近距離接近父親的作品,但他最後選擇臨摹了貝爾的畫作,當作是真跡賣掉了,他以這樣的方式在世界上留下自己的印記。

以《我們不完美》、《你在我心中的崛起與衰落》受到讀者喜愛的湯姆‧瑞奇曼,在故事中不僅講述活在精英父親陰影底下的平曲,一生如何受到父親的影響和牽制,也探討藝術家的真諦。

Rome, 1955

The artists are gathering together for a photograph. In one of Rome's historic villas, a party glitters with socialites and patrons. Bear Bavinsky, creator of vast, masculine, meaty canvases, is their god. He is at the centre of the picture. His wife, Natalie, edges out of the shot.

From the side of the room watches little Pinch - their son. At five years old he loves Bear almost as much as he fears him. After Bear abandons their family, Pinch will still worship him, while Natalie faces her own wars with the art world. Trying to live up to his father's name - one of the twentieth century's fiercest and most controversial painters - Pinch never quite succeeds. Yet by the end of a career of twists and compromises, he enacts an unexpected rebellion that will leave forever his mark upon the Bear Bavinsky legacy.

What makes an artist? In The Italian Teacher, Tom Rachman displays a nuanced understanding of art and its demons. Moreover, in Pinch he achieves a portrait of vulnerability and frustrated talent that - with his signature humour and humanity ­- challenges the very idea of greatness.
