內容簡介


《紐約時報》、《娛樂周刊》、《衛報》一致推薦,2017年最讓人期待的書籍之一。

一本關於婚姻的親密與不忠的小說。到底什麼樣的鴻溝,隔絕了我們理解他人的內在世界?我們到底堆砌了多少話語,來掩蓋自己真實的情緒?

她,是個30好幾,住在倫敦的譯者;丈夫Christopher是個風度翩翩、魅力無限、到處拈花忍草的作家。兩人協議的分居,在Christopher的堅持下,所有的親人都不知情。

她,其實已經開始新的人生,有了新的男友,卻在接到婆婆的一通電話後,不得不遠赴希臘的南方半島,尋找丈夫的下落。她,其實不確定自己是否真的希望找到丈夫,但是如果找到了,就一定要提出離婚,好回到正常的生活軌道,因為她不想再這麼偷偷摸摸地活下去了!

當她打聽到Christopher住的飯店,得知他留下所有的行李,只是參加當地一個小旅行後,她決定留在飯店等分居的丈夫回來。她感到飯店裡的工作人員雖然友善,卻帶著些許好奇、敵意與打探的意味。就在等待的過程中,她開始回想,與Christopher婚姻為何以失敗收場,並且發現,她以為知之甚深的丈夫原來是個如此陌生的人…。

A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: it's time for them to separate. For the moment it's a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, alone, she gets word that her ex-husband has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged southern Peloponnese. Reluctantly she agrees to go and search for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart, she's not even sure if she wants to find him. Adrift in the wild and barren landscape, she traces the failure of their relationship, and finds that she understands less than she thought about the man she used to love.

A story of intimacy, infidelity and compassion, A Separation is about the gulf that divides us from the lives of others and the narratives we create to mask our true emotions. As the narrator reflects upon her love for a man who may never have been what he appeared, Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on the brink of catastrophe. A Separation is a riveting masterpiece of absence and presence that will leave the reader astonished, and transfixed.
