內容簡介


無畏的寫作,關於種族關係、煽情的文化,進行了猛烈的諷刺。──每日郵報。

選題大膽,極具挑釁......融合了火熱的戲劇和種族主義的殘酷事實。──愛爾蘭星期日郵報。

暢銷書作家Joyce Carol Oates一部融合性暴力、種族主義的煽動性小說。

14歲的女孩是種族暴力事件的恐怖行為下的受害者,大大的衝擊她以及家人,甚至社區,加劇了這紐澤西小鎮一直憋屈數十年的種族緊張,多種族趁勢齊聲吶喊,一發不可收拾,從警方到媒體,從女孩家人到社區,無一不攏聚在這緊繃到隨時就會斷弦的壓力下,這股壓力,正是小說的高潮,這些打著正義旗幟的背後的真相究竟是甚麼?人性的純真是可以論斤計價的買賣品嗎?復仇的本質,真理的複雜性,人類貪得無厭、追求轟動效應的醜陋面目,隨著故事發展,有意無意,讓讀者不斷捫心自問,也是這位偉大的文學大師企圖表達的主題。

Them《他們》是她第一部作品,獲得美國國家圖書獎榮譽,作品並多次被提名普立茲獎與諾貝爾文學獎,美國當代著名小說家,被譽為女福克納,年近八十,筆耕不輟。

Best-selling author Joyce Carol Oates blends sexual violence, racism, brutality, and power in her latest incendiary novel.

When a fourteen-year-old girl is the alleged victim of a terrible act of racial violence, the incident shocks and galvanises her community, exacerbating the racial tension that has been simmering in this New Jersey town for decades.

Unfolding in a chorus of multiracial voices – from the police to the media to the victim and her family – which gather to reach a tense crescendo at the novel’s climax, THE SACRIFICE offers a shocking new understanding of power and oppression, innocence and guilt, truth and sensationalism, justice and retribution – and the primal decisions we make to protect those we love.

A chilling exploration of complex social, political, and moral themes, THE SACRIFICE is a major work of fiction from one of our most revered literary masters.
