內容簡介


「巴奈特擁有那種罕見的能力,跟克蒂絲.希坦菲和凱特‧亞金森一樣,將日常生活乏味的樣子架構起來,直到它們獲得意義」─時代雜誌

卡絲‧威勒她是個知名的歌手、作曲家、女兒、妻子、母親,數年前,她突然決定退休,她把自己和音樂隔離,也把自己從這世界隔離,她有過喜怒哀樂,看過悲歡離合,步入人生後半的卡絲決定再次和世界連結。

卡絲計畫從過去熱賣的歌曲中,選出最她對有意義的十六首,組成一張精選輯發售,每一首歌都是一個故事,都是她人生中的一個篇章,透過這些歌曲,她唱著自己的人生,說這自己的故事。

母親拋棄她的那一天、滿是熱情的初戀、成名的過程、婚後的生活、失去一切的那個瞬間……

但在這些故事中,是否可以找到她突然決定退休,消失在音樂界的原因呢?

'Barnett has that rare talent, like Curtis Sittenfeld or Kate Atkinson, of building up the mundane aspects of everyday life until they acquire meaning' THE TIMES

'Barnett excels herself in this mesmerising ballad of a book...Greatest Hits is not just about music, it's about people: their ambitions, friendships and flaws. An absolute must read' STYLIST


If you could choose just sixteen moments to define your entire life, what would they be?

Cass Wheeler has seen it all - from the searing heights of success, to earth-shattering moments of despair. She has known passion, envy, pride, fear, and love. She has been a daughter, a mother, a singer, a lover.

A musician born in 1950, Cass is now taking one day to select the sixteen songs in her repertoire that have meant the most to her. And behind each song lies a story - from the day her mother abandoned her, to her passionate first love, to the moment she lost everything. The dreams, the failures, the second chances. But what made her disappear so suddenly from her public life?
