內容簡介


看天才女作家Curtis Sittenfeld 繼《我在貴族學校的日子》、《我當第一夫人的日子》之後,如何改寫《傲慢與偏見》。

「即便是死忠的奧斯汀迷,也會被這本小說給吸引。」
--《O - 歐普拉雜誌》(O - The Oprah Magazine)

Bennet家的Liz,已經30好幾,在紐約的雜誌社工作。她的大姊Jane,是個瑜珈老師。因為父親心臟病突發,兩個人不得不回到辛辛那提郊區的家裡。她們不僅要阻止母親老是給父親吃牛排,還得整理那個亂七八糟的都鐸式風格的家。最小的兩個妹妹Kitty 與Lydia忙著以交叉健身法(CrossFit)和原始人飲食法(Paleo diets)來瘦身,以便找到工作。老三Mary正在修她第三個線上課程碩士,除了周二晚上神秘的外出,她幾乎沒離開過房間。Bennet太太老想著如何把女兒給嫁掉,特別是Jane的40歲生日快到了!

Chip Bingley,一個剛搬到辛辛那提的迷人醫生,最近出現在電視實境秀《適婚男女》(Eligible)的節目中。在國慶日的烤肉宴上,驚艷於Jane的美麗。而他的朋友Fitzwilliam Darcy,則是一個高傲的神經外科醫師,受夠了辛辛那提與當地居民,對Liz老是投以懷疑的眼神。Liz被父親堆積如山的醫療帳單搞得身心俱疲,還得分心處理妹妹們脫序行為所搞出來的問題,而且還要想辦法避開老是覬覦她的Willie表哥,但是這一切都不能阻止愛苗的滋長...。

《紐約時報》暢銷書,Eligible這本小說既溫柔又有趣。它處理了性別、階級、求愛與家庭的議題,Curtis Sittenfeld再度確保她是當今最讓人目眩神迷的作家之一。

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘The book of the summer’ The Times

'Sheer joy… Giddy and glam and a hearty update of Pride and Prejudice’ Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist

The Bennet sisters have been summoned from New York City.

Liz and Jane are good daughters. They’ve come home to suburban Cincinnati to get their mother to stop feeding their father steak as he recovers from heart surgery, to tidy up the crumbling Tudor-style family home, and to wrench their three sisters from their various states of arrested development.

Once they are under the same roof, old patterns return fast. Soon enough they are being berated for their single status, their only respite the early morning runs they escape on together. For two successful women in their late thirties, it really is too much to bear. That is, until the Lucas family’s BBQ throws them in the way of some eligible single men . . .

Chip Bingley is not only a charming doctor, he’s a reality TV star too. But Chip's friend, haughty neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy, can barely stomach Cincinnati or its inhabitants. Jane is entranced by Chip; Liz, sceptical of Darcy. As Liz is consumed by her father’s mounting medical bills, her wayward sisters and Cousin Willie trying to stick his tongue down her throat, it isn’t only the local chilli that will leave a bad aftertaste.

But where there are hearts that beat and mothers that push, the mysterious course of love will resolve itself in the most entertaining and unlikely of ways. And from the hand of Curtis Sittenfeld, Pride & Prejudice is catapulted into our modern world singing out with hilarity and truth.
