內容簡介 《林中祕族》、布克獎入圍《渺小一生》作者美籍日裔韓裔作家:柳原漢雅叩問理想國度 柳原漢雅世紀末遇見紐約紐時暢榜柳原漢雅窺探人性跨越三個超現實的美國「世紀末」時空。1893、1993和2093年的平行美國時空有如虛擬實驗室,演繹著戀人、家庭、失落和飄渺的理想國願景。三世紀篇章如交響樂呢喃著:恐懼、愛、羞恥、需要與孤獨。1893年,同性婚合法的紐約;柔弱世家子弟大衛對平凡的音樂教師有好感,拒絕祖父安排的結婚對象查爾斯。1993年,失去政權的夏威夷王族後裔大衛與年長許多的富有律師查爾斯在紐約同居。2093年,疫情侵擾、極權統治下的紐約,查莉的祖父遭羅織罪名處決,身有殘疾的她只好獨自面對丈夫的失蹤。From the author of the modern classic A Little Life, a bold, brilliant novel spanning three centuries and three different versions of the American experiment, about lovers, family, loss and the elusive promise of utopia.'To Paradise is a transcendent, visionary novel of stunning scope and depth. A novel so layered, so rich, so relevant, so full of the joys and terrors – the pure mystery – of human life, is not only rare, it’s revolutionary.' – Michael CunninghamIn an alternate version of 1893 America, New York is part of the Free States, where people may live and love whomever they please (or so it seems). The fragile young scion of a distinguished family resists betrothal to a worthy suitor, drawn to a charming music teacher of no means. In a 1993 Manhattan besieged by the AIDS epidemic, a young Hawaiian man lives with his much older, wealthier partner, hiding his troubled childhood and the fate of his father. And in 2093, in a world riven by plagues and governed by totalitarian rule, a powerful scientist’s damaged granddaughter tries to navigate life without him – and solve the mystery of her husband’s disappearances.These three sections are joined in an enthralling and ingenious symphony, as recurring notes and themes deepen and enrich one another: A townhouse in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village; illness, and treatments that come at a terrible cost; wealth and squalor; the weak and the strong; race; the definition of family, and of nationhood; the dangerous righteousness of the powerful, and of revolutionaries; the longing to find a place in an earthly paradise, and the gradual realization that it can’t exist. What unites not just the characters, but these Americas, are their reckonings with the qualities that make us human: Fear. Love. Shame. Need. Loneliness.To Paradise is a fin-de-siecle novel of marvellous literary effect, but above all it is a work of emotional genius. The great power of this remarkable novel is driven by Yanagihara’s understanding of the aching desire to protect those we love – partners, lovers, children, friends, family and even our fellow citizens – and the pain that ensues when we cannot."
