內容簡介


《英倫情人》作者新作!

「這本關於秘密和遺失的小說,可能是翁達傑截至今日最棒的作品。」─出版家週刊

一九四五年的倫敦,第二次世界大戰歐戰勝利日後不久,十四歲的奈森和姊姊瑞秋被父母親拋棄,他們的母親羅絲即將前往新加坡,但卻告訴兩人他們將留在倫敦,會有人來照顧他們。

奈森和瑞秋新的照護者是個名為The Moth的男人,兩姊弟不知道他是個怎麼樣的人,只知道他可能是個罪犯。

一起生活一段時間後,兩人和The Moth關係更緊密了。而且除了他之外,他有著相似背景的朋友們也都盡力想要保護兩姊弟,但他們的身分真的如同自己所說的那樣嗎?

過了數年,奈森已是成人,過去的生活依舊困擾著他,除了The Moth和他的朋友們,他的父母親也是充滿謎團的人,奈森拼拼湊湊,發現了當時不知道或者不了解的故事。

曾以《英倫情人》獲得布克獎的麥可‧翁達傑,將再次以本書讓讀者們掉入他重現戰時灰暗氛圍的魔法中,為出版前就受到歐美媒體、各界評論家的一致好評。


In a narrative as mysterious as memory itself – at once both shadowed and luminous – Warlight is a vivid, thrilling novel of violence and love, intrigue and desire. It is 1945, and London is still reeling from the Blitz and years of war. 14-year-old Nathaniel and his sister, Rachel, are apparently abandoned by their parents, left in the care of an enigmatic figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and grow both more convinced and less concerned as they get to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women with a shared history, all of whom seem determined now to protect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all he didn’t know or understand in that time, and it is this journey – through reality, recollection, and imagination – that is told in this magnificent novel.
