內容簡介




「The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night是書中寶石」─英國Stylist雜誌


這個年頭,只需要按個按鍵就可以找到你需要的東西,所以我在網路上買了她的心臟。

十二個不同主題的短篇故事,同樣帶你走入作者宛如仙境的童話世界。

不管是在網路上幫女友買了一顆心臟的男人、擔心自己姊姊有兩個靈魂的男孩、討論著世界起源的夫妻、在水族館展示的美人魚,每篇故事都含有濃濃的魔幻元素,並且每篇都可以看出坎貝爾的寫作功力和野心,第一個故事《動物》講在網路上可以買到不同的心臟來交換自己的心臟,暗黑但美麗;《瑪格麗特和瑪莉和世界盡頭》中,則是引用了聖經、歷史,對於資料的考究不容忽視;她使用不同文體,如劇本、信件、對話等,並且變換說故事的口氣,讀起來更有層次更豐富,讓讀者深深被吸引,網路評論、媒體一致好評!

坎貝爾出版過詩、短篇故事、童書,詩作在二零一六年獲得Eric Gregory Award,她在書店業工作已有十個年頭,也經營自己以書為主題的Youtube頻道和Podcast,以書店實際碰到的怪問題為主題的《書店怪問》最廣為人知。

Modern fairy tales of magic, outsiders and lost souls. 'WHAT A BOOK. IT'S SO STRANGE AND MAGICAL AND THE WRITING IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. I LOVED IT.' Louise O'Neill 'ENCHANTING AND ILLUMINATING' Carys Bray, author of A Song For Issy Bradley 'LIKE WALKING THROUGH A MIRROR.' Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry 'THIS BOOK IS FULL OF CHARACTER AND MAGIC, AND I FOUND MYSELF MESMERISED' Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days 'A GEM OF A BOOK ... DEEPLY MOVING' Stylist Book Wars v THE BOOK OF DUST. 'THESE STORIES ARE WEAVED TOGETHER LIKE SILVERY FISHING NETS. LIKE SHIMMERING, JEWEL-BRIGHT WORLDS' Helen McClory

'These days, you can find anything you need at the click of a button.
That's why I bought her heart online.'

Spirits in jam jars, mini-apocalypses, animal hearts and side shows.
A girl runs a coffin hotel on a remote island.
A boy is worried his sister has two souls.
A couple are rewriting the history of the world.
And mermaids are on display at the local aquarium.

The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night is a collection of twelve haunting stories; modern fairy tales brimming with magic, outsiders and lost souls.

'I'm fascinated by storytelling, and particularly fairy tales. How humans have always tried to explain things that they can't possibly understand with, sometimes outrageous, stories' Jen Campbell
