內容簡介


貧窮、漠視、遺棄──
生命的損傷,唯有愛能救贖
入圍 2016 年國際都柏林文學獎決選
普立茲文學獎作品《遺愛基列》續作


當代頂尖小說家瑪莉蓮.羅賓遜在此一令人低迴的故事中再次回到基列這個小鎮,敘述一個女孩懷著恐懼、敬畏和驚嘆,在社會邊緣度過的少女時光。

萊拉曾在鄉間流浪多年,如今隻身一人,無家可歸,在雨中走進愛荷華州一座小鎮上的教堂──唯一能讓她躲雨的地方──激起了一段愛情和一番辯論,從此改變了她的人生。她成為喪偶多年的牧師約翰.艾姆斯的妻子,展開了新的人生,同時試圖理解過去的歲月,理解在她找到如今這份安穩生活之前的時光。

萊拉幼時乏人照顧,年輕能幹的流浪女子朵兒救了她,把她撫養長大,她在流浪打工中度過坎坷的童年。她們四處躲藏,過著僅能餬口的生活,能保護她們的只有她們的親密情誼和一把舊刀子。儘管有偶發的輕微暴力事件和絕望時刻,她們共享的時光仍交織著歡欣。在萊拉來到基列鎮之後,她努力想調和兩個不同的世界,一邊是她的替代家庭和他們的艱苦人生,另一邊則是她丈夫溫和的基督教世界觀,此一世界觀矛盾地批判了她所愛的那些人。

《萊拉》接續了瑪莉蓮.羅賓遜的前兩部小說《遺愛基列》與《家園》,重拾兩書中深受喜愛的人物及背景,動人地表達出生存的奧秘,此書注定將成為美國文學經典。

本書介出自漫步文化出版《基列系列 III: 萊拉》

Lila, homeless and alone after years of roaming the countryside, steps inside a small-town Iowa church-the only available shelter from the rain-and ignites a romance and a debate that will reshape her life. She becomes the wife of a minister and widower, John Ames, and begins a new existence while trying to make sense of the days of suffering that preceded her newfound security.

Neglected as a toddler, Lila was rescued by Doll, a canny young drifter, and brought up by her in a hardscrabble childhood of itinerant work. Together they crafted a life on the run, living hand-to-mouth with nothing but their sisterly bond and a lucky knife to protect them. But despite bouts of petty violence and moments of desperation, their shared life is laced with moments of joy and love. When Lila arrives in Gilead, she struggles to harmonize the life of her makeshift family and their days of hardship with the gentle worldview of her husband which paradoxically judges those she loves.

Revisiting the beloved characters and setting of Marilynne Robinson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Gilead and Orange Prize-winning Home, Lila is a moving expression of the mysteries of existence.
