內容簡介

  紐約時報暢銷作家最新力作,引領讀者深入種族身份認同議題
  一對孿生姊妹,因多年前的一場出走,導致彼此各自走向了非「黑」即「白」的世界
 
  生長在南部路易斯安那州,種族隔離政策仍為主流的1940年代,Vignes這對雙胞胎姊妹Desiree和Stella,親眼見證了父親被處以私刑的景象,她們決定逃離這個小鎮。16歲那年,性格較為強勢的姊姊Desiree帶著妹妹來到了紐奧良,正要展開新生活之際,妹妹Stella為了完成求學之夢,某天晚上悄悄離去,至此音訊全無⋯⋯
 
  14年後,Desiree再次逃離了另一個噩夢—對她拳腳相向的前夫,這是她第二次帶著血親逃跑,但這回她和女兒Jude的目的地卻是當年那個不友善的家鄉。如今此地的歧視愈加嚴重:在這裡,不會有人嫁給比自己膚色還要黑的男人,更不會把小孩帶在身邊。面對這種不公平的歧視,讓Jude決定效法母親當年的作法,一有機會就離開了小鎮。
 
  當她來到加州,一邊在UCLA考取學位,一邊在比佛利山莊當服務生打工,卻意外在這裡看到了母親的分身。原來,她遇到了母親的孿生妹妹。但驚人的是,Stella在加州的生活,完全建構在她假扮成白人的謊言上…

  From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white.

  The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect?

  Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing. Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.

  As with her New York Times-bestselling debut The Mothers, Brit Bennett offers an engrossing page-turner about family and relationships that is immersive and provocative, compassionate and wise.
