 如臨深淵、如履薄冰,愛爾蘭小說家Edna O'Brien睽違十年再出手,完成生涯代表作!

 在嚴寒的冬季夜晚,一位自稱是詩人與靈療師的神祕人物 Dr. Vladimir Dragan,來到愛爾蘭西邊的海濱小鎮定居下來。他英俊、世故、充滿魅力,當地女子Fidelma McBride為他深深地著迷,將自己的痛苦交給他來醫治,整個小鎮也都受到這位人物的控制。然而,當一切幻滅、真相被揭露,小鎮居民與Fidelma將為此付出沉痛的代價。

 

Ten years on from her last novel, Edna O'Brien reminds us why she is thought to be one of the great Irish writers of this and any generation.

When a wanted war criminal from the Balkans, masquerading as a faith healer, settles in a small west coast Irish village, the community are in thrall. One woman, Fidelma McBride, falls under his spell and in this astonishing novel, Edna O'Brien charts the consequences of that fatal attraction.

The Little Red Chairs is a story about love, the artifice of evil, and the terrible necessity of accountability in our shattered, damaged world. A narrative which dares to travel deep into the darkness has produced a book of enormous emotional intelligence and courage. Written with a fierce lyricism and sensibility, The Little Red Chairs dares to suggest there is a way back to redemption and hope when great evil is done. Almost six decades on from her debut, Edna O'Brien has produced what may be her masterpiece in the novel form.
