內容簡介


2016曼布克國際文學獎 (The Man Booker International Prize)得主

我再也沒辦法忍受肉的味道,只有植物能讓我平靜,讓我渴望  
就這樣倒立著,變成一棵樹吧……

首位入圍英國布克獎、備受國際矚目的韓國小說家 韓江 
探究人類內心壓抑的瘋狂與傷痕之傑作

美國獨立書商協會排行榜、倫敦標準晚報暢銷文學小說Top2,擊敗暢銷懸疑小說《列車上的女孩》,小說改編的同名電影,入圍2010年日舞影展世界劇情片。

在夢裡,我正倒立著……突然發現從我身上冒出了枝葉,從手上長出了樹根……一直伸到地面,不斷地、不斷地……然後從兩腿之間綻放出鮮花……
我應該被澆水。這些食物我不需要,我需要水。

在開始不斷做著充滿殺戮和鮮血的噩夢之前,英惠只是個生活平凡至極的家庭主婦,無數失眠的夜晚和夢中恐怖的景象令她飽受折磨,有一天,她突然無法再吃肉、無法忍受肉的味道,成為了一名「素食者」,這個小小的舉動不但讓她的婚姻陷入危機,並且成為一連串失控之舉的開端。

《素食者》由三個章節構成,每章分別以不同的視角刻畫行為日趨極端的素食者英惠。在她斷絕食物的過程中,融合了關於暴力、美、欲望、罪和救贖的疑問。書中出現了多種意象:絢麗的盛開花朵、直挺的陰鬱樹木、花瓣大小的藍綠色胎記、血淋淋的垂死動物與飛翔之鳥,有性的符號,卻非刻意強調煽情。作者行文如詩,捕捉瞬間掠過的情感來勾勒角色無奈又痛苦的命運,有如一則黑暗預言。

本書簡介節錄自中文版《素食者》漫遊者出版

Yeong-hye and her husband are ordinary people. He is an office worker with moderate ambitions and mild manners; she is an uninspired but dutiful wife. The acceptable flatline of their marriage is interrupted when Yeong-hye, seeking a more 'plant-like' existence, decides to become a vegetarian, prompted by grotesque recurring nightmares. In South Korea, where vegetarianism is almost unheard-of and societal mores are strictly obeyed, Yeong-hye's decision is a shocking act of subversion. Her passive rebellion manifests in ever more bizarre and frightening forms, leading her bland husband to self-justified acts of sexual sadism. His cruelties drive her towards attempted suicide and hospitalisation. She unknowingly captivates her sister's husband, a video artist. She becomes the focus of his increasingly erotic and unhinged artworks, while spiralling further and further into her fantasies of abandoning her fleshly prison and becoming - impossibly, ecstatically - a tree. Fraught, disturbing and beautiful, The Vegetarian is a novel about modern day South Korea, but also a novel about shame, desire and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another.
