內容簡介


獲獎無數的BBC記者Emma-Jane Kirby喚醒人性與良知的全新作品
「令人悲痛,如詩如夢般的驚人作品。」─《時代雜誌》
「年度最值得注目的作品,從開始到結束,止不住的淚水與悲傷。」─《戴著珍珠耳環的少女》作者Tracy Chevalier

「我不知道該怎麼形容當我們的船靠近那可怕噪音的景象,如果你身歷其境,你就能懂我想表達的。我以為我聽到的是海鷗在搶食而發出的叫聲,我多麼希望那真的只是海鷗的呼喊...。」

住在地中海蘭佩杜薩島的驗光師是一位平凡的中年男子,他與妻子的眼鏡店是島上唯一的一間店,兩人過著平靜且快樂的子。在一個陽光普照的夏日,他與友人決定出海遊玩,卻萬萬沒想到這一天是徹底改變他們一生的日子。他們在海上聽到恐怖的呼喊,一開始以為是海鷗為了搶食而發出的尖叫聲,等到船靠近聲音來源,他們看到300多位難民在海中身手向他們哭喊及求救...。

'Poetically written, absorbing, harrowing' The Times

'The raw and emotional account of an optician whose family fishing trip suddenly placed him amid the human tragedy of hundreds of drowning migrants is a story that needed to be told' Fiona Wilson, The Times

'An important book ... I cried all the way through' Tracy Chevalier

From an award-winning BBC journalist, this moving book turns the testimony of an accidental hero into a timeless story about human fellowship and the awakening of courage and conscience.


'I can hardly begin to describe to you what I saw as our boat approached the source of that terrible noise. I hardly want to. You won't understand because you weren't there. You can't understand. You see, I thought I'd heard seagulls screeching. Seagulls fighting over a lucky catch. Birds. Just birds.'

Emma-Jane Kirby has reported extensively on the reality of mass migration today. In The Optician of Lampedusa she brings to life the moving testimony of an ordinary man whose late summer boat trip off a Sicilian island unexpectedly turns into a tragic rescue mission.
