內容簡介

  《莫斯科紳士》、《林肯公路》作者亞莫爾.托歐斯最新作品
 
  《Table for Two》收錄六篇取材自紐約的短篇故事,和一部關於《上流法則》主角伊芙‧羅斯的中篇小說
 
  精彩的人物刻畫、豐富而充滿想像力的細節,亞莫爾.托歐斯再度發揮說故事的功力,讓讀者彷彿親身造訪書中的世界。
 
  其中主要的一篇中篇小說,甚至以亞莫爾出道作《上流法則》中的伊芙為主角,延續故事之外的角色生命。讓在原書中不屈不撓的伊芙,最終離開紐約,欲回家鄉的她,卻因為一個插曲,將目的地變更為洛杉磯。她來到好萊塢的世界,結識新朋友,再度展開新的生活。故事背景走遍大大小小的電影陳設場景、洛杉磯的小屋,和各大酒吧。一個二手書商和年輕準作家,後者發現自己的用處只是模仿一位大師級作家的簽名;兩名被滯留在機場的旅客,在共乘一趟計程車後,卻迎來天翻地覆的夜晚。無論是人與人之間的短暫相遇,所導致的巨大後果,或是婚姻中的微妙機制,亞莫爾都用他饒富哲學性的智慧口吻,為讀者娓娓道來每一段精彩的故事。(文/博客來外文館)

  From the bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway, A Gentleman in Moscow, and Rules of Civility, a richly detailed and sharply drawn collection of stories, including a novella featuring one of his most beloved characters
 
  Millions of Amor Towles fans are in for a treat as he shares some of his shorter fiction: six stories based in New York City and a novella set in Golden Age Hollywood.
 
  The New York stories, most of which take place around the year 2000, consider the fateful consequences that can spring from brief encounters and the delicate mechanics of compromise that operate at the heart of modern marriages.
 
  In Towles’s novel Rules of Civility, the indomitable Evelyn Ross leaves New York City in September 1938 with the intention of returning home to Indiana. But as her train pulls into Chicago, where her parents are waiting, she instead extends her ticket to Los Angeles. Told from seven points of view, “Eve in Hollywood” describes how Eve crafts a new future for herself—and others—in a noirish tale that takes us through the movie sets, bungalows, and dive bars of Los Angeles.
 
  Written with his signature wit, humor, and sophistication, Table for Two is another glittering addition to Towles’s canon of stylish and transporting fiction.Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2024 by the New York Times Book Review Podcast, Reader’s DigestTIME Magazine, and more
