內容簡介


英國新銳小說家、文壇才女Helen Oyeyemi,繼《Mr. Fox》與《Boy, Snow, Bird》之後,推出短篇小說集

《What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours》是一部玩性十足、充滿野心與幻想的傑作。故事內容圍繞在各種不同的「鑰匙」上:房子的鑰匙、解開內心的鑰匙,或解開秘密的鑰匙。不管是真正的鑰匙,或是作為比喻之用,都可以發現作者的巧妙安排。這些鑰匙,不僅解開書中角色人生的重要元素,也將人物帶往更加複雜的謎團中。

在〈Books and Roses〉中,一把特殊鑰匙不僅打開通往圖書館與花園的門,更是解開一對戀人命運的線索。在〈Is Your Blood as Red as This?〉裡,一把最不可能的鑰匙解開一名偶戲學校學生的內心。在〈‘Sorry’ Doesn’t Sweeten Her Tea〉裡,「鎖屋」(house of locks) 的門只有用鑰匙能關起來,也會有出其不意的發展。在〈If a Book Is Locked There’s Probably a Good Reason for That Don't You Think〉裡,則是神秘的日記本上了鎖。

Oyeyemi錯綜的故事橫跨時間與景象,挑戰了諸多共存現實的界線,必將讓讀者大開眼界。

The stories collected in What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours are linked by more than the exquisitely winding prose of their creator: Helen Oyeyemi's ensemble cast of characters slip from the pages of their own stories only to surface in another.

The reader is invited into a world of lost libraries and locked gardens, of marshlands where the drowned dead live and a city where all the clocks have stopped; students hone their skills at puppet school, the Homely Wench Society commits a guerrilla book-swap, and lovers exchange books and roses on St Jordi's Day.

It is a collection of towering imagination, marked by baroque beauty and a deep sensuousness.
