內容簡介


諾貝爾文學獎得主帕慕克第二本作品,英文版首度出版!

這部好看又憂傷的作品描述三個兄妹在伊斯坦堡附近的小鎮、在他們九十歲奶奶的家中度過的一週,令人驚訝的成功之作。

用多視角和準確的眼力搭建了一連串的事件鏈:色彩、地志學、詳盡的描述…

土耳其的小漁村─天堂堡壘,是法蒂瑪的丈夫當初受到政敵威脅,而從伊斯坦堡搬來定居的地方。現在丈夫去世了,法蒂瑪年老臥病,寂靜而古老的屋子裡,只有丈夫的私生子雷吉普─一個侏儒男人,在照顧著她。

每年夏天,法蒂瑪的孫子們會回來,但是卻沒有帶來多大的安慰。各說各話、各行其事,空洞而陳舊的話題,不斷重複上演。但是這幾天裡,喧囂以及動盪震撼了這個家,每個人都要面對巨大變化的環境,以及內心的迷惘…

Never before published in English, Orhan Pamuk’s second novel is the story of a Turkish family gathering in the shadow of the impending military coup of 1980.

In an old mansion in Cennethisar, a former fishing village near Istanbul, a widow, Fatma, awaits the annual summer visit of her grandchildren. She has lived in the village for decades, ever since her husband, an idealistic young doctor, ran afoul of the sultan’s grand vizier and arrived to serve the poor fishermen. Now mostly bedridden, she is attended by her constant servant Recep, a dwarf—and the doctor’s illegitimate son. Despite mutual dependency, there is no love lost between mistress and servant, who have very different recollections—and grievances—from the early years, before Cennethisar grew into a high-class resort surrounding the family house, now in shambles.

Though eagerly anticipated, Fatma’s grandchildren bring little consolation. The eldest, Faruk, a dissipated historian, wallows in alcohol as he laments his inability to tell the story of the past from the kaleidoscopic pieces he finds in the local archive; his sensitive leftist sister, Nilgün, has yet to discover the real-life consequences of highminded politics; and Metin, a high school nerd, tries to keep up with the lifestyle of his spoiled society schoolmates while he fantasizes about going to America—an unaffordable dream unless he can persuade his grandmother to tear down her house.
But it is Recep’s nephew Hasan, a high school dropout, lately fallen in with right-wing nationalists, who will draw the visiting family into the growing political cataclysm issuing from Turkey’s tumultuous century-long struggle for modernity.

By turns deeply moving, hilarious, and terrifying, Silent House pulses with the special energy of a great writer’s early work even as it offers beguiling evidence of the mature genius for which Orhan Pamuk would later be celebrated the world over.
