內容簡介

  一封詭異的召集令,硬生生把艾瑪特(Emmett Farmer),將他和家人拆散。被迫成為一名手工書籍裝訂師。謎樣的圈子,喚醒內在恐怖、迷信與偏見的職業。因為這不單單是書籍裝訂,裝訂的扉頁下,可能是你的回憶與不愉快的經歷。
 
  想想你能輕易的抹去憂傷的記憶。
  想想你能移除所有的痛苦。
  想想你可以把最黑暗與恐怖的秘密永遠地埋藏起來。
 
  從艾瑪特有記憶以來,他就與書本難分難解,即使當時的書本,常被嚴格地禁止。但書本裝訂仍然被視為神聖的召喚。人們告訴他,你天生就是吃這行飯的人。在老女人的看管下,艾瑪特學會手工製作與裝訂書本,做出一本本優良的牛皮精裝書。每一本都能抓住靈魂獨一無二的印記,回憶。
 
  假如你有任何事情想忘記,我們可以幫忙,任何事物想抹去,也能提供協助。只需要將不愉快的事物,封在扉頁當中。而師父的工作坊,天頂處,正排列著整齊的書本,藏著無數的故事。
 
  但總有利慾薰心,唯利是圖的裝訂師,他們毫無道德地運用自身的能力,讓周遭人陷入無止盡的深淵。當艾瑪特適應了新環境後,他無意間發現一本寫著自己名字的書。他意外地發現,事事所想,並非真實。他的人生與記憶將巨大地被改寫與喚醒。(文/博客來編譯)
 
‘I wish I had written it’ ──Erin Kelly
 
  Imagine you could erase your grief.
  Imagine you could forget your pain.
  Imagine you could hide a secret.
  Forever.
 
  Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a Bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice – but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse.
 
  He will learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there’s something you want to forget, he can help. If there’s something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible.
 
  In a vault under his mentor’s workshop, row upon row of books – and memories – are meticulously stored and recorded.
 
  Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it.
 
  THE BINDING is an unforgettable, magical novel: a boundary-defying love story and a unique literary event.
 
Reviews
 

  ‘The Binding is a dark chocolate slice of cake with a surprising, satisfying seam of raspberry running through it. It is a rich, gothic entertainment that explores what books have trapped in them and reminds us of the power of storytelling. Spellbinding’ Tracy Chevalier
 
  ‘The Binding held me captive from the start and refused to set me free. It is a beautifully crafted tale of dark magic and forbidden passion, where unspeakable cruelty is ultimately defeated by enduring love. Breathtaking!’ Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things
 
  ‘Intriguing, thought-provoking and heartbreaking … what a gorgeous book’ Stella Duffy
 
  ‘What an astounding book … something entirely of its own. Brilliant concept, truly extraordinary writing and a killer plot’ Anna Mazzola, author of The Unseeing
 
  ‘Pure magic. The kind of immersive storytelling that makes you forget your own name. I wish I had written it’ Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said
 
  ‘An original concept, beautifully written. Collins’ prose is spellbinding’ Laura Purcell, author of The Silent Companions
 
  ‘A moving, spellbinding book with a powerful love story at its heart and one of the best twists I’ve read in a long time. I fell into and inhabited and loved it. Such a deeply enjoyable and nourishing novel’ Sandra Newman, author of The Heavens
