內容簡介


由廣受讚譽的普立茲獎得主、紐約時報暢銷書All The Light We Cannot See作者Anthony Doerr,另一本美麗的、引人注目的作品:About Grace。

一個淒美的故事。在阿拉斯加的David Winkler,是一個迷戀雪與關注天氣變化的男子,應該就這樣靜靜地生活,但他很不幸的,擁有預知的能力,能看見尚未發生的事情:一個手拿帽子禮盒的男人被公車撞倒;他看見自己在超市愛上了他未來的妻子;然後,他看見自己鍾愛的女兒會被洪水淹沒…..他再也無法視若無睹,他試圖拯救女兒……試圖否認他的看見……他來到加勒比海,一個陌生之處,放棄自我的他窮困潦倒,好在有一個女兒的一對夫妻收容了他……一個關於救贖的動人故事。

Anthony Doerr筆下的主角都充滿悲傷,同時也充滿了優雅;他同情人性的弱點顯得格外動人。這部作品,令人心碎的,不忍卒睹,卻也展現他在文學上驚人的成就。

When Anthony Doerr's "The Shell Collector" was published in 2002, the "Los Angeles Times" called his stories "as close to faultless as any writer -- young or vastly experienced -- could wish for." He won the Rome Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Discover Prize, Princeton's Hodder Fellowship, and two O. Henrys, and shared the Young Lions Award. Now he has written one of the most beautiful, wise, and compelling first novels of recent times.David Winkler begins life in Anchorage, Alaska, a quiet boy drawn to the volatility of weather and obsessed with snow. Sometimes he sees things before they happen -- a man carrying a hatbox will be hit by a bus; Winkler will fall in love with a woman in a supermarket. When David dreams that his infant daughter will drown in a flood as he tries to save her, he comes undone. He travels thousands of miles, fleeing family, home, and the future itself, to deny the dream.On a Caribbean island, destitute, alone, and unsure if his child has survived or his wife can forgive him, David is sheltered by a couple with a daughter of their own. Ultimately it is she who will pull him back into the world, to search for the people he left behind.Doerr's characters are full of grief and longing, but also replete with grace. His compassion for human frailty is extraordinarily moving. In luminous prose, he writes about the power and beauty of nature and about the tiny miracles that transform our lives. "About Grace" is heartbreaking, radiant, and astonishingly accomplished.
