內容介紹

從有記憶以來,蘇珊一直在逃離,只是無論她逃到哪她總是找不到內心的平靜與快樂。蘇珊雖然已是兼任教授,但她因為寫不完一本小說身心折磨多年,對於她的丈夫缺乏感情也讓她徬徨失措。正當她想放下一切重頭開始,她收到一封來信,寫信的人正是造成她精神受創的父親丹尼爾,她父親在40年前謀殺了她的母親造成了蘇珊受創無法有正常的人際關係。

剛出獄的父親丹尼爾寫給蘇珊的信是他死前最後的心願,自從40年前悲劇發生後警察將蘇珊帶走,丹尼爾就沒見過女兒一面,他希望在有生之年還有機會和女兒解釋為何他會殺害蘇珊的母親。蘇珊心情五味雜陳,她如何面對這個和她形同陌生人的殘酷父親? 當他離開之後蘇珊的世界崩塌離析。當故事進展到兩人可能會再次重聚時剎然終止,小說探索人們原諒的極限以及人們的動機與渴望總是制約著我們的行為。

書評

"GONE SO LONG is an astonishment. I love this book so much, the HUMANITY in it. I love every single person in it, they are so real, these people -- I know them and love them all. I wept for them, I did. Dubus is just so good and real and true, he doesn't pull one sentimental punch the whole time, extraordinary. I thought about those people as I was walking down the sidewalk, and they are inside me as well, not just thoughts that go by. I love this book to pieces." – Elizabeth Strout, author of Olive Kitteridge

"When you open the pages of Gone So Long, you surrender to writing of extraordinary precision and depth. It is a book that lovers of the written word will embrace, as too those seeking a compelling story.... Dubus paces his narrative masterfully, revealing each protagonist’s back story as the novel crests to its tense conclusion. Most stunning is Dubus’ skill in drawing the personalities of his characters with an empathetic incisiveness that reveals their vulnerabilities in prose, at once, raw and beautiful. A smart book that will appeal to (and deserves) a great many readers." – Lori Feathers, Co-owner & Book Buyer, Interabang Books, Dallas
