充滿智慧──華盛頓郵報。
母親和女兒之間複雜的情感……深刻的文字幾乎似乎是一種新聖經或佛經──新聞日報。

一部描述母女情感,極其細膩且溫柔,看似寧靜卻充滿毀滅性的作品。

女主角露西因手術住進醫院,她許多年不曾對話的母親前來探望,突如其來的探訪勾起了露西對童年的回憶,開啟塵封已久的回憶,母親像是一把打開了從來不想回首在伊利諾州童年的鎖匙:原來她一直在緊張和憧憬中成長,想逃離長期困擾她的家庭,渴望成為一名作家,她的婚姻,以及她對女兒的愛。最終,露西與母親能夠和解嗎?還是又重歸兩條毫無干係的平行線?

如蒸餾水般的情感,沒有自憐的暗示,作者敏銳觀察,刻劃人性,以平淡內斂的文字,扣人心弦,抓住讀者的心,字裡行間,有時都能覺得疼痛,彷彿自己受到傷害。創造了一個真正令人難忘的溫情故事。


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A new book by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout is cause for celebration. Her bestselling novels, including Olive Kitteridge and The Burgess Boys, have illuminated our most tender relationships. Now, in My Name Is Lucy Barton, this extraordinary writer shows how a simple hospital visit becomes a portal to the most tender relationship of all—the one between mother and daughter.

Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.
