內容簡介

  「不容錯過的作品!」亞馬遜年度暢銷《親愛的艾德華》作者極力推薦
  每個人都能成為最傑出耀眼的存在,然而必須付出一些代價⋯⋯
 
  Neil的父母親為了追尋美國夢,遠從印度移民至此,將這份甜蜜而厚重的心願寄託在子女身上。姊姊完美地消化了這份冀望,已經考上了一流的大學;而他自己,Neil,雖然也很幽默很聰明,但對比上完美的親姊姊,以及那位隔壁鄰居暨好友之一,才貌雙全的Anita,他的光芒便暗淡了下來。Anita不僅外貌亮眼,在學業上面有好成績,人緣好,又常常帶辯論隊伍贏得勝利。然而這看似「人生勝利組」的風光背後,其來有自,而且這原因也意外地被Neil發現。一切都來自於Anita母親所擁有的古老鍊金術,只要喝下那「黃金水」,野心便會付諸于事實。然而殊不知,這個靈藥提煉自母女倆偷來的珠寶,當Neil一被捲入這秘密,隨之而來的是一場悲劇的誕生⋯⋯
 
  十年後,Neil變成了一個毫無野心,正準備畢業論文的歷史學博士,Anita卻毫無預警地再次出現在他面前,除了帶來母親Anjali深陷麻煩的消息,需要幫忙外,也同時告訴Neil,現在有個計劃能夠幫助他實現夢寐以求的「理想生活」,自然,需要付出點代價⋯⋯

  "Gold Diggers takes a wincingly hilarious coming-of-age story, laces it with magical realism and a trace of satire, and creates a world that's both achingly familiar and marvelously inventive...This is a dizzyingly original, fiercely funny, deeply wise novel about the seductive powers--and dangers--of borrowed ambition." --Celeste Ng, author of Little Fires Everywhere
  A brilliant Indian-American magical realist coming of age story and the debut of a major talent

  Spanning two continents, two coasts, and four epochs, Gold Diggers expertly balances social satire and magical realism in a classic striver story that skewers the model minority narrative, asking what a community must do to achieve the American dream. In razor sharp and deeply funny prose, Sathian perfectly captures what it is to grow up as a member of a family, of a diaspora, and of the American meritocracy. This blockbuster novel both entertains and levels a critique of what Americans of color must do to make their way.

  A floundering second-generation teenager growing up in the Bush-era Atlanta suburbs, Neil Narayan is authentic, funny, and smart. He just doesn't share the same drive as everyone around him. His perfect older sister is headed to Duke. His parents' expectations for him are just as high. He tries to want this version of success, but mostly, Neil just wants his neighbor across the cul-de-sac, Anita Dayal.

  But Anita has a secret: she and her mother Anjali have been brewing an ancient alchemical potion from stolen gold that harnesses the ambition of the jewelry's original owner. Anjali's own mother in Bombay didn't waste the precious potion on her daughter, favoring her sons instead. Anita, on the other hand, just needs a little boost to get into Harvard. But when Neil--who needs a whole lot more--joins in the plot, events spiral into a tragedy that rips their community apart.

  Ten years later, Neil is an oft-stoned Berkeley history grad student studying the California gold rush. His high school cohort has migrated to Silicon Valley, where he reunites with Anita and resurrects their old habit of gold theft--only now, the stakes are higher. Anita's mother is in trouble, and only gold can save her. Anita and Neil must pull off one last heist.

  Gold Diggers is a fine-grained, profoundly intelligent, and bitingly funny investigation in to questions of identity and coming of age--that tears down American shibboleths.
