內容簡介

內容簡介 【誠品選書】《Olive, Again》作者2021矚目新書普利茲獎得主斯特勞特小說《不良品》登上紐時暢榜冠軍後,再推續作!露西是紐約市的成功作家,丈夫剛剛過世,兩個女兒都已成人。露西巧遇前夫威廉。威廉也是她斷斷續續偶有聯絡的知心朋友。從兩人的大學時光、兩個女兒的出生、婚姻的崩解,以及各自與他人重建的人生等種種回憶,作者以細膩筆觸描述一段溫柔、複雜且久遠的夥伴關係。The Pulitzer Prize-winning, Booker-longlisted, bestselling author returns to her beloved heroine Lucy Barton in a luminous novel about love, loss, and the family secrets that can erupt and bewilder us at any point in lifeLucy Barton is a successful writer living in New York, navigating the second half of her life as a recent widow and parent to two adult daughters. A surprise encounter leads her to reconnect with William, her first husband - and longtime, on-again-off-again friend and confidante. Recalling their college years, the birth of their daughters, the painful dissolution of their marriage, and the lives they built with other people, Strout weaves a portrait, stunning in its subtlety, of a tender, complex, decades-long partnership.Oh William! captures the joy and sorrow of watching children grow up and start families of their own; of discovering family secrets, late in life, that alter everything we think we know about those closest to us; and the way people live and love, against all odds. At the heart of this story is the unforgettable, indomitable voice of Lucy Barton, who once again offers a profound, lasting reflection on the mystery of existence. 'This is the way of life,' Lucy says. 'The many things we do not know until it is too late.'
