內容簡介


2016年曼布克文學獎決選入圍名單
榮獲2016年巴黎評論普林姆頓小說獎(The Plimpton Prize for Fiction)
9個男子相互交錯的人生與自我認同的超現實主義之作

故事敘述分別處於人生不同生命階段的9個男子,每一位都離家在外並為生活打拼,不論身處布拉格的郊外、比利時高速公路旁,或是塞浦路斯的廉價旅館,每一位都在困頓、迷惘中嘗試理解生存的意義。看似9個不同的短篇故事,實則彼此交錯,透過作者寫實精闢的描繪,交織成一場時而哀傷,時而荒誕及心碎的人生旅程。故事伴隨主角們年紀越長,氣候也越趨於寒冷,作者以一針見血的描寫透視這9個男子的心理,滑稽、震驚、卑鄙、充滿活力、可憐又可笑,還有內心最真摯的渴望。在歲月無情的追趕下,主角們的命運也越走向不可思議的發展,作者探討社會群體生活的複雜,也道盡21世紀男性存在的無奈的處境。

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 MAN BOOKER PRIZE

Nine men. Each of them at a different stage of life, each of them away from home, and each of them striving – in the suburbs of Prague, beside a Belgian motorway, in a cheap Cypriot hotel – to understand just what it means to be alive, here and now. 

Tracing an arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age, All That Man Is brings these separate lives together to show us men as they are – ludicrous and inarticulate, shocking and despicable; vital, pitiable, hilarious, and full of heartfelt longing. And as the years chase them down, the stakes become bewilderingly high in this piercing portrayal of 21st-century manhood.
