內容簡介


三個來自不同國家的太空人,共同經歷一場前往火星的模擬飛行,在封閉的太空艙裡,三個人的關係越來越緊張,模擬器引發的心理與生理的併發症,使得虛實的界線越來越模糊,模擬飛行是否能成功?

在探索太空的過程中,他們是否也探索了自己的內心,還有與家人的關係?一本《如果我們的世界消失了》與《火星任務》的綜合體,獲《圖書館日誌》2017年3月小說選書。

「引人入勝…,雖然21世紀的讀者孰悉太空劇碼的結構,作者Howrey透過她詩意的書寫與人物的豐富性,使得這本書有了嶄新的樣貌。這是一本抒情而細膩的太空作品。」--《柯克斯評論》星級評論

巔峰太空(Prime Space)公司將在四年後派人登陸火星。三個太空人獲得模擬訓練的機會,他們必須證明自己有資格成為首度登上火星的太空人。

Helen Kane是退役的NASA太空人,這個任務是最後一次回到太空的機會,對她而言,太空就像家一般。她的丈夫過世了,唯一的女兒卻無法諒解Helen面對丈夫死亡的態度。

俄羅斯宇航員Sergei Kuznetsov與妻子的離婚雖以平和收場,但是與兩個兒子的疏離關係該如何拉近?

日本的年輕太空人Yoshi Tanaka的妻子一直思索甚至懷疑兩人婚姻的價值,這次測試將是Yoshi證明自己在這場婚姻的意義。

本書充滿想像力,詼諧中帶著溫柔,智慧又極其精準,隱藏在三位漫遊者探索太空的慾望背後,其實是探索自己的內心。

Station Eleven meets The Martian in this brilliantly inventive novel about three astronauts training for the first-ever mission to Mars, an experience that will push the boundary between real and unreal, test their relationships, and leave each of them—and their families—changed forever 

In an age of space exploration, we search to find ourselves.
 
In four years Prime Space will put the first humans on Mars. Helen Kane, Yoshi Tanaka, and Sergei Kuznetsov must prove they’re the crew for the job by spending seventeen months in the most realistic simulation ever created.

Retired from NASA, Helen had not trained for irrelevance. It is nobody’s fault that the best of her exists in space, but her daughter can’t help placing blame. The MarsNOW mission is Helen’s last chance to return to the only place she’s ever truly felt at home. For Yoshi, it’s an opportunity to prove himself worthy of the wife he has loved absolutely, if not quite rightly. Sergei is willing to spend seventeen months in a tin can if it means travelling to Mars. He will at least be tested past the point of exhaustion, and this is the example he will set for his sons. 

As the days turn into months the line between what is real and unreal becomes blurred, and the astronauts learn that the complications of inner space are no less fraught than those of outer space. The Wanderers gets at the desire behind all exploration: the longing for discovery and the great search to understand the human heart.
