那是什麼?企鵝。一隻企鵝?!對,牠叫米沙。隊長開車經過,看見一名士兵帶著一隻企鵝站在路旁。「帶牠去動物園。」他下令。   幾天後,隊長開車經過,又看見那名士兵帶著企鵝在路邊。「你是怎麼搞的?」他說:「我不是叫你帶牠去動物園了?」「報告隊長,我們去過動物園了,」士兵回答:「還去了馬戲團,現在要去看電影。」   米沙站在沙發後面低頭沉思。維克多坐在餐桌前盯著稿紙發呆。米沙是一隻企鵝。患有憂鬱症的企鵝。維克多是一個作家,一個想寫小說,卻是個只能靠撰寫政商名流的未來訃聞維生的不得志作家。   動物園開放認養那天,維克多把米沙帶回家,沒想到牠竟是一隻患有憂鬱症的企鵝。當他用打字機一字一字描繪生命圖像,米沙會搖搖晃晃走到主人身邊把頭靠在他腿上,偶爾閃著快樂神采,更多時候是露出懇求的眼神。維克多雖成不了真正的作家,但至少寫訃聞的工作可以為米沙買更多魚,而且越來越多政商名流租借米沙出席喪禮,加上長滿雀斑,綁著紅色馬尾的小女孩桑妮埡出現,生活逐漸好轉⋯⋯。

  • ISBN:9781594634499
  • 點閱率:41

Cast out of the royal court by Eleanor of Aquitaine, deemed too coarse and rough-hewn for marriage or courtly life, seventeen-year-old Marie de France is sent to England to be the new prioress of an impoverished abbey, its nuns on the brink of starvation and beset by disease. At first taken aback by the severity of her new life, Marie finds focus and love in collective life with her singular and mercurial sisters. In this crucible, Marie steadily supplants her desire for family, for her homeland, for the passions of her youth with something new to her: devotion to her sisters, and a conviction in her own divine visions. Marie, born the last in a long line of women warriors and crusaders, is determined to chart a bold new course for the women she now leads and protects. But in a world that is shifting and corroding in frightening ways, one that can never reconcile itself with her existence, will the sheer force of Marie’s vision be bulwark enough? Equally alive to the sacred and the profane, Matrix gathers currents of violence, sensuality, and religious ecstasy in a mesmerizing portrait of consuming passion, aberrant faith, and a woman that history moves both through and around. Lauren Groff’s new novel, her first since Fates and Furies, is a defiant and timely exploration of the raw power of female creativity in a corrupted world.

When her twin sister reaches social media stardom, Moon Fuentez accepts her fate as the ugly, unwanted sister hidden in the background, destined to be nothing more than her sister’s camerawoman. But this summer, Moon also takes a job as the “merch girl” on a tour bus full of beautiful influencers and her fate begins to shift in the best way possible. Most notable is her bunkmate and new nemesis, Santiago Phillips, who is grumpy, combative, and also the hottest guy Moon has ever seen. Moon is certain she hates Santiago and that he hates her back. But as chance and destiny (and maybe, probably, close proximity) bring the two of them in each other’s perpetual paths, Moon starts to wonder if that’s really true. She even starts to question her destiny as the unnoticed, unloved wallflower she always thought she was. Could this summer change Moon’s life as she knows it?

  • 點閱率:46

An astounding work of fiction from New York Times bestselling author Jason Mott, always deeply honest, at times electrically funny, that goes to the heart of racism, police violence, and the hidden costs exacted upon Black Americans and America as a whole In Jason Mott’s Hell of a Book, a Black author sets out on a cross-country publicity tour to promote his bestselling novel. That storyline drives Hell of a Book and is the scaffolding of something much larger and more urgent: Mott’s novel also tells the story of Soot, a young Black boy living in a rural town in the recent past, and The Kid, a possibly imaginary child who appears to the author on his tour. As these characters’ stories build and converge, they astonish. For while this heartbreaking and magical book entertains and is at once about family, love of parents and children, art and money, it’s also about the nation’s reckoning with a tragic police shooting playing over and over again on the news. And with what it can mean to be Black in America. Who has been killed? Who is The Kid? Will the author finish his book tour, and what kind of world will he leave behind? Unforgettably told, with characters who burn into your mind and an electrifying plot ideal for book club discussion, Hell of a Book is the novel Mott has been writing in his head for the last ten years. And in its final twists, it truly becomes its title.
