內容簡介


紐約時報暢銷書《娃娃屋》(The Miniaturist)作者潔西.波頓(Jessie Burton)最新力作!

一幅畫能道盡千言萬語...交織了兩個不同世代年輕女性的抱負與人生

1967年的英國。Odelle Bastien是來自加勒比海千里達的移民,試圖在倫敦為自己的寫作志業闖出一片天。她隨即於聲望卓著的Skelton藝廊,得到一份打字員的工作。之後,她發現一幅謠傳為年輕藝術家Isaac Robles的畫作:他擁有極高的天份與遠見,他的神秘之死,卻也是藝術界數十年來不解的謎團。然而,伴隨著這幅畫的發現,除了興奮之情外,其背後相互矛盾的故事似乎籠罩著陰謀。Odelle不知道她該相信什麼,也不知道她能相信誰,包括她充滿魅力而神秘的同事Marjorie Quick。

1936年的西班牙。知名奧地利藝術經銷商的女兒Olive Schloss,跟隨父母來到南岸不平靜的貧窮小村落Arazuelo,內心則懷抱著藝術野心,卻不願告訴父親,因為他認為女性沒有能力創作偉大的藝術品。她逐漸與當地的兩人親近:年輕的家庭主婦Teresa,還有她的哥哥Isaac Robles,一位充滿理想與野心的畫家,以成為像畢卡索如此知名的藝術家為目標。

Teresa和Isaac Robles逐漸巧妙地深入Schloss富裕的家庭生活,幫助Olive隱藏她的藝術天分,卻帶來將會持續至數十年後的災難性後果……

潔西.波頓以前作《娃娃屋》般的精湛描繪,帶來以野心與身分、愛與迷戀、真實與欺騙交織而成的大師傑作。


A picture hides a thousand words . . .

On a hot July day in 1967, Odelle Bastien climbs the stone steps of the Skelton gallery in London, knowing that her life is about to change forever. Having struggled to find her place in the city since she arrived from Trinidad five years ago, she has been offered a job as a typist under the tutelage of the glamorous and enigmatic Marjorie Quick. But though Quick takes Odelle into her confidence, and unlocks a potential she didn't know she had, she remains a mystery - no more so than when a lost masterpiece with a secret history is delivered to the gallery.

The truth about the painting lies in 1936 and a large house in rural Spain, where Olive Schloss, the daughter of a renowned art dealer, is harbouring ambitions of her own. Into this fragile paradise come artist and revolutionary Isaac Robles and his half-sister Teresa, who immediately insinuate themselves into the Schloss family, with explosive and devastating consequences . . .

Seductive, exhilarating and suspenseful, The Muse is an unforgettable novel about aspiration and identity, love and obsession, authenticity and deception - a masterpiece from the million-copy bestselling author of The Miniaturist.
