內容簡介


故事涉及自相殘殺的血腥,墮落的哲學,就像與漢尼拔跟沙特同桌吃飯。

執導過The Fly《變蠅人》A History of Violence《暴力效應》等電影,以恐怖與科幻為主題的加拿大導演,以72歲之姿首闖文壇的第一本小說。

故事如同他執導電影般科幻、神秘、離奇,然而有別於其他科幻小說的是他將電影畫面平面化,透過文字描述,更為栩栩如生,這是他文字功力傳神之處,應該與他數十年導演資歷,以及豐富人生閱歷有極大關係。

故事描述Naomi 和Nathan這對情人同樣熱愛時尚與攝影,兩人愛情也夾雜了工作上競爭效應,卻意外捲入一樁謀殺事件,而Nathan忽然發現自己罹患一種罕見疾病,為了這疾病他們又闖進科學家的研究室,發現更多驚人的秘密……介紹至此,不覺出現電影《變蠅人》的場景……過於懦弱者恐怕不適於閱讀這本書,進入陰暗的深處,驚心動魄的,令人震驚的有關精神和肉體的故事,非自然衝擊的強烈和超現實的想像,......閱讀起來,充滿邪惡的樂趣。強力推薦。 

The debut novel by the iconic film director.

Stylish and camera-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan are lovers and competitors – nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity in the social media age, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows.

Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Célestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Célestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide, suspected of the killing, has disappeared. Naomi sets off in pursuit, but the secrets she discovers are as seductive as they are disturbing.

Nathan, meanwhile, is in Budapest photographing the controversial work of an unlicensed surgeon named Zoltán Molnár. After sleeping with one of Molnár’s patients, Nathan contracts a rare STD called Roiphe’s. Nathan then travels to Toronto, determined to meet the man who identified the syndrome. Dr. Barry Roiphe, Nathan learns, now studies his own adult daughter, whose bizarre behaviour masks a devastating secret.

These parallel narratives become entwined in a gripping, dreamlike plot that involves geopolitics, 3-D printing, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, cancer, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex. ‘Consumed’ is an exhilarating, provocative debut novel from one of the world’s leading film directors.
