內容簡介


《最後的旗幟》電影官方小說,改編美國作家Darryl Ponicsan同名著作
亞馬遜影視工作室發行,史提夫‧卡爾、布萊恩‧克萊及勞倫斯‧費許朋領銜主演,《年少時代》金球獎最佳導演李查・林克雷特執導

美國作家Darryl Ponicsan首部小說《最後行動》受到廣大迴響,更於1973年翻拍為同名電影。本書為《最後行動》的續集,描述三位經典角色歷經30年的歲月洗禮,再次因緣際會而團聚。這次三人將再度展開一段公路之旅,不過人事已非,也多了點哀傷。

邁向大叔之年的Meadows尋求當年押送他的水手老友,一同護送因伊拉克戰爭殉職的兒子回到家鄉樸茨茅斯,三位中年大叔的公路之旅就此展開,再度感受作者Ponicsan一貫的寫作特質:平淡、幽默、傷痛及溫暖。

Now a major motion picture, directed by five-time Oscar-nominee Richard Linklater and starring Oscar nominees Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne.

When middle-aged veteran Meadows learns that the authorities have told him a lie about the circumstances of the death of his son, a Marine killed in Iraq, he reunites with aging companions Billy Bad-Ass Buddusky and Mule Mulhall to perform a sacred task: the proper burial of his boy.

So begins the journey up the Eastern seaboard, both a solemn mission and a protest against injustice, a celebration of life that is at once irreverent, funny, profane and deeply moving.

Darryl Ponicsán's debut novel The Last Detail was named one of the best of the year and widely acclaimed, catapulting him to fame when it was first published and made into an award-winning movie starring Jack Nicholson. Last Flag Flying, set thirty-four years after the events of The Last Detail, brings together the same beloved characters for a striking meditation on the passage of time and the nature of truth.

The Last Detail, which introduced the characters of Last Flag Flying, is also available in ebook now.
