內容簡介

  《和諧絲莊》(the Harmony Silk factory)、《沒有地圖的世界》(Map of the invisiable World)與《五星豪門》(Five Star Billionaire)的作者歐大旭(Tash Aw)又一新作,精準描述男性的暴力與亞洲社會快速變遷下的背景。

  故事發生在馬來西亞的小漁村,主角安霍克(Ah Hock),是位平凡的漁夫,從小在漁村長大,他喜歡平靜生活中的安定感。但周遭快速地變化,在這個聲稱人人可以過上富有生活的社會中,他掙扎求生,追尋實際上極微小的機會,卻始終被困在社會的最底層。甚至,生活迫使他犯下謀殺案。

  是什麼原因讓他殺了人?

  這一切的質問來自一名中產的記者。

  當受害者已經安息、加害者入監服刑,安霍克的動機,卻始終不明,甚至對安霍克自己而言,也說不清。從他生動的自白、緊鑼密鼓的訪談、記者的不斷追問,整個過程,迫使雙方面對制度的力量與種族、階級的差異,或本該受惠的普羅大眾,卻被排除在少數幸運的繼承人之外的現實。

  不肯妥協的圈外人,徘徊在社會過渡的灰色地帶,你我都是倖存者,小心翼翼地活著,等待指日可待的滅亡。

  歐大旭出生於台北,但成長於馬來西亞。他憑著《和諧絲莊》獲得英國惠特布列(Whitebread)小說首獎。《沒有地圖的世界》與《五星豪門》,曾於2013年提名曼布克獎。多元的生長環境與求學歷程,反映在他的文字中,塑造出亞洲世界的光怪陸離,帶來精彩而深沉的作品。

  A murderer’s confession – devastating, unblinking, poignant, unforgettable – which reveals a story of class, education and the inescapable workings of destiny.

  Ah Hock is an ordinary, uneducated man born in a Malaysian fishing village and now trying to make his way in a country that promises riches and security to everyone, but delivers them only to a chosen few. With Asian society changing around him, like many he remains trapped in a world of poorly paid jobs that just about allow him to keep his head above water but ultimately lead him to murder a migrant worker from Bangladesh.

  In the tradition of Camus and Houellebecq, Ah Hock’s vivid and compelling description of the years building up to this appalling act of violence – told over several days to a local journalist whose life has taken a different course – is a portrait of an outsider like no other, an anti-nostalgic view of human life and the ravages of hope. It is the work of a writer at the peak of his powers.

  Review

  Advance Praise for We, the Survivors

  “Tash Aw’s new novel succeeds in achieving many feats: it is at once the great novel on today’s racism that we have been waiting for; a masterly fresco of Southeast Asia, a region of the world that remains underrepresented in literature; and a magnificent story . . . We, The Survivors is one of the most beautiful and powerful books I’ve read in years.” ―Édouard Louis

  “Utterly absorbing to the last word . . . With deep empathy combined with a sharp, unflinching gaze. As with his other books, we end up loving the characters we might otherwise hate, and arguing with those we might have a natural affinity for. [Aw] manages to turn our assumptions inside out, all while creating a world that would, without him, remain out of reach and invisible.”―Tahmima Anam
