在一個與季節不符的溫暖秋天,一名美國教師進入保加利亞首都索菲亞國立文化宮的公共廁所,在那兒,他與一名年輕有魅力名叫Mitko的男妓發生了關係。在接下來的數月中,被饑渴、孤單與危險所吸引,他不斷地回頭找Mitko,進而發現自己被困在因肉慾導致彼此獵捕,溫柔可以轉變成暴力的關係中。掙扎於化解慾望與痛苦之間的矛盾時,他被迫要處理自己不安的過去,那個在他童年時期的美國南方,同性戀被憎恨的世界。當主人翁從Mitko訴說的故事裡,知道了Mitko疾病、被剝削與慾望的過去時,他發現保加利亞這個國家的地理與痛苦和他的過去有著讓人害怕的相似性。 

What Belongs to You是一本關於欲望和慾望帶來什麼樣後果的小說,帶著抒情的張力與驚人的情慾。Garth Greenwell創作了一本讓人難忘的作品,闡述我們的過去與文化,我們的傷疤與羞辱,如何形塑出我們是什麼樣的人,並決定我們如何去愛。

On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher enters a public bathroom beneath Sofia’s National Palace of Culture. There he meets Mitko, a charismatic young hustler, and pays him for sex. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, drawn by hunger and loneliness and risk, and finds himself ensnared in a relationship in which lust leads to mutual predation, and tenderness can transform into violence. As he struggles to reconcile his longing with the anguish it creates, he’s forced to grapple with his own fraught history, the world of his southern childhood where to be queer was to be a pariah. There are unnerving similarities between his past and the foreign country he finds himself in, a country whose geography and griefs he discovers as he learns more of Mitko’s own narrative, his private history of illness, exploitation, and want.

What Belongs to You is a stunning debut novel of desire and its consequences. With lyric intensity and startling eroticism, Garth Greenwell has created an indelible story about the ways in which our pasts and cultures, our scars and shames can shape who we are and determine how we love.
