內容簡介


普立茲小說獎得主伊麗莎白.斯特勞特(Elizabeth Strout)延續前作《我的名字叫露西.巴頓》(My Name Is Lucy Barton)中的角色露西,串起小鎮居民的各種愛與失落……

「所有幸福的家庭都是相似的,不幸的家庭各有各的不幸。」──托爾斯泰《安娜.卡列尼娜》

本書描繪小鎮居民的人物肖像畫,探討人類如何面對愛與失落:一對做出截然不同人生選擇的姊妹──一個嫁入豪門、一個在書中找到改變人生的知己好友;從露西小時候就十分照顧她的校工,選擇以原諒面對失去;一名已長大成人的女兒仍渴求著母親的愛,即使媽媽已經快樂地定居國外;一名有創傷後壓力症候群的越戰老兵,在寂寞的旅館主人陪伴下找到心靈慰藉;還有童年悲慘、現已成為作家的露西.巴頓睽違十七年後,回到家鄉拜訪兄弟姊妹,要面對的卻是對她懷有敵意與怨恨的家人與居民……

作者除了揭露露西.巴頓的童年生活,描繪複雜的家庭羈絆,更探討階級偏見的主題。如前作《生活是頭安靜的獸》(Olive Kitteridge)般的豐富與深度,藉由人們試圖了解自我與他人的互動,探索人類情感。

An unforgettable cast of small-town characters copes with love and loss in this new work of fiction by #1 bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout.

Recalling Olive Kitteridge in its richness, structure, and complexity, Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others.

Here are two sisters: One trades self-respect for a wealthy husband while the other finds in the pages of a book a kindred spirit who changes her life. The janitor at the local school has his faith tested in an encounter with an isolated man he has come to help; a grown daughter longs for mother love even as she comes to accept her mother's happiness in a foreign country; and the adult Lucy Barton (the heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton, the author's celebrated New York Times bestseller) returns to visit her siblings after seventeen years of absence.

Reverberating with the deep bonds of family, and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible again underscores Elizabeth Strout's place as one of America's most respected and cherished authors.
