內容簡介



「在這個豎立圍牆與恐外的時代,阮清越8篇痛徹心扉又充滿希望的故事,每一個政客都應該閱讀。」--《衛報》

「憤怒而非絕望,妥協而非不切實際的渴望,發自內心的幽默不是用來削弱任何人,阮清越將生命注入讓人難以忘懷的角色中,一本及時到來的書...。」--《衛報》

在這本《難民》小說集中,2016年普立茲獎得主阮清越為生活在移民的家園與出生國這兩個世界之中的生命發聲。年輕的越南難民來到舊金山與兩名同性戀男人同住,他遭遇了深刻的文化衝擊;一個女人的丈夫為失智症所苦,將她誤認為前任情人;一個住在胡志明市的女孩,她那有一半血緣關係的姊姊從美國回來了,這個姐姐似乎完成了她永遠無法完成的事;這些故事都是移民的夢想與艱辛的證詞。

阮清越的第二本小說《難民》,精準觀察了那些啟程至另一個國度的人們的想望,以及定義我們人生的自我成就。

From the winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

'Nguyen's eight heart-wrenching and hopeful stories ought to be required reading for every politician in this era of wall-building and xenophobia' the Guardian

In The Refugees, Viet Thanh Nguyen gives voice to lives led between two worlds, the adopted homeland and the country of birth. From a young Vietnamese refugee who suffers profound culture shock when he comes to live with two gay men in San Francisco, to a woman whose husband is suffering from dementia and starts to confuse her for a former lover, to a girl living in Ho Chi Minh City whose older half-sister comes back from America having seemingly accomplished everything she never will, the stories are a captivating testament to the dreams and hardships of immigration. The second piece of fiction by a major new voice, The Refugees is a beautifully written and sharply observed book about the aspirations of those who leave one country for another, and the relationships and desires for self-fulfillment that define our lives.
