內容簡介


傳奇暢銷書《項塔蘭》最新續集,再度帶領讀者回到孟買,一起探索生命與愛的真義。

Regret is a nicer self that we send into the past from time to time, even though we know it's too late to change what we said, or did.

(遺憾是我們不時地將比較好的自我送往過去,即使知道無論我們曾經說過什麼、或做過什麼,想要改變,都已經太遲了。)

曾經感動成千上萬讀者的暢銷力作《項塔蘭》,是作者的自傳體小說,描述一名曾在澳洲大學教授哲學與文學的年輕講師,成為罪犯逃往印度,在孟買貧民窟中當懸壺濟世的醫生而生存下來,後又加入幫派,在往後無數的遭遇中,遇見此生的導師黑幫老大哈德漢,以及有著天使翅膀的摯愛卡拉,而漸漸了解愛與生命的真諦,並成為不折不扣的孟買靈魂。

《項塔蘭》在十多年前上市之初,即獲得百萬讀者的喜愛,其對孟買充滿顏色與氣味的描寫、高潮迭起的豐富情節、以及主角貫穿全書、帶有哲思的第一人稱敘述,在在打中讀者的心,讓人深陷書中情節而無法自拔。

在十多年後再度出版的續篇The Mountain Shadow再度帶領讀者和主角Lin一起回到孟買,為了生存,再度回歸他的老勾當—走私,然而,曾經熟悉的城市早已變樣,新一代的黑幫勢力則越趨殘暴及狡詐。全新的項塔蘭續集,林將重新學習什麼是愛,什麼又是命運與抉擇,並該如何延續他與卡拉及孟買未了的情緣。


A breath of Bombay hope, in the first glimpse of the sea, on Marine Drive, filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's recklessness. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything.

The end of the eighties was the beginning of everything. The Berlin wall fell on a ruined empire, and the Taliban took Afghanistan. Lin, on the run after escaping from prison in Australia, working as a passport forger for a Bombay mafia gang, finds himself standing on a tattered corner of a bloody carpet that would soon cover most of the world. But he can't leave the Island City: not without Karla.

Two years after the events in Shantaram, Bombay is a different world, playing by different rules. Lin's search for love and faith leads him through secret and violent intrigues to the dangerous truth. A love story told with hope and humour, a personal struggle for redemption, and a philosophical quest for the wisdom of our common humanity, The Mountain Shadow is a sublime novel, and an all-consuming, epic thriller.
