充滿激情與危險的戀情,扭曲的驚悚情節,優美的文學氛圍,一流的作品,最佳的小說。

1913年的維也納,一個年輕的英國演員,Lysander Rief,飽受他在親密關係中的神經官能症所困擾,正坐在候診室等著與精神科醫生Bensimon的會晤。一名年輕女子走進。Lysander立即被她獨特的、淡褐色的雙眼,以及不尋常的美貌所吸引。從維也納至倫敦西區,從法國戰場在日內瓦的酒店房間,在愛情與國家之間,所有的純粹都顯得益加複雜。

1981年以《非洲好人》A Good Man in Africa榮獲惠特布雷德獎和毛姆獎的William Boyd,已出版十部小說,這部被星期日電訊報(Sunday Telegraph)譽為其巔峰之作。

Vienna, 1913. It is a fine day in August when Lysander Rief, a young English actor, walks through the city to his first appointment with the eminent psychiatrist Dr Bensimon. Sitting in the waiting room he is anxiously pondering the particularly intimate nature of his neurosis when a young woman enters. She is clearly in distress, but Lysander is immediately drawn to her strange, hazel eyes and her unusual, intense beauty. Her name is Hettie Bull. They begin a passionate love affair and life in Vienna becomes tinged with a powerful frisson of excitement for Lysander. He meets Sigmund Freud in a cafe, begins to write a journal, enjoys secret trysts with Hettie and appears - miraculously - to have been cured. Back in London, 1914. War is imminent, and events in Vienna have caught up with Lysander in the most damaging way. Unable to live an ordinary life, he is plunged into the dangerous theatre of wartime intelligence - a world of sex, scandal and spies, where lines of truth and deception blur with every waking day. Lysander must now discover the key to a secret code which is threatening Britain's safety, and use all his skills to keep the murky world of suspicion and betrayal from invading every corner of his life. Moving from Vienna to London's West End, from the battlefields of France to hotel rooms in Geneva, Waiting for Sunrise is a feverish and mesmerising journey into the human psyche, a beautifully observed portrait of wartime Europe, a plot-twisting thriller and a literary tour de force from the bestselling author of Any Human Heart, Restless and Ordinary Thunderstorms.
