故事簡介

十八世紀的法國女孩艾笛.拉胡充滿好奇心與冒險精神,守舊落後的小鎮鄰人和親生父母卻只知逼迫她結婚生子、庸碌一生。她只能在心裡悄悄祈求自由,但回應她禱告的卻不是上帝或聖母,而是名為路克的古老黑暗之神,對她提出了浮士德式的契約:她可以無拘無束探索世界、免受傷病侵襲、甚至能長生不老;唯一的條件是,她倘若自願結束生命,靈魂便會被路克奪去。

魔鬼的交易總是暗藏玄機,祂要艾笛為永生付出的真正代價,是令她承受永遠的孤寂,註定被每一個人忘記。不但她的家人和朋友完全遺忘她的存在,新認識的人也會在一天之內徹底失去對她的記憶。她再不可能擁有朋友或情人,就連投宿旅店,都會被掃地出門——因為老闆也會在隔天忘記她已經付錢訂房。
 
艾笛如同幽魂一般在人世間流浪,路克時時期盼如此無盡的寂寞會驅使她自願了結已經形同折磨的永生、好讓他按照契約收走她的靈魂。但艾笛頑強地堅持了三百年的歲月,經歷戰爭與革命、橫跨海洋與大陸,不斷嘗試突破契約的限制,想在世界上留下些許足跡、想被人記得,卻始終無法得償所願,只能透過藝術家的手筆,在相識的第一天尚未結束、她還沒被遺忘以前,化身為難以捉摸的無名繆思女神,藏身於畫作、歌曲或雕塑之中。
 
到了二○一四年的紐約,艾笛走進一家書店,遇見一個名叫亨利的店員,她順手牽羊,摸走一本希臘文版的《奧德賽》,亨利追了出來,一時心軟把書送給她。隔天艾笛回到店裡,理應忘記她曾經來過的亨利,卻對她說出了她漫長生涯中朝思暮想的四個字:

「我記得妳。」

也許是契約出了差錯,又也許,他就是命中註定的詛咒破解者,三百歲的她和三十歲的他,開始了一場不可能的愛戀。艾笛原本注定被遺忘的漫長人生,從此開始化為他們兩人刻骨銘心的故事。

但為什麼只有亨利能夠記得她?
想和亨利坦白一切的艾笛,會得到他怎麼樣的回應?
仍在等待艾笛交出靈魂的黑暗之神路克,又將如何出手干預......?


佳評讚譽

「雖然在小說設定中遭受詛咒而被人遺忘,艾笛.拉胡卻是個最討喜難忘的角色,她的故事是由不可思議的概念構想勾起的美妙遐思。」──尼爾.蓋曼

「一段萬花筒般令人目眩神迷的冒險,橫跨許多個充滿愛、失落、藝術與戰爭的世紀,一路上還點綴著千百個小小的魔幻時刻,你會發現自己一下哀痛心碎,一下為舒瓦筆下慧黠迷人、匠心獨具的安排而歡呼。」──娜歐蜜.諾維克(《盤根之森》作者)

「令我全神投入,忘了現實世界的存在。」──茱蒂.皮考特(《愛在字裡行間》作者)

「艾笛.拉胡在十八世紀和惡魔締下了契約──她將長生不老,但隨之而來的詛咒是,她會被所有人給遺忘……這部小說富有電影感,令讀者深深滿足,在創作概念與格局上都足以與當代經典《時空旅人之妻》匹敵。」──亞馬遜網路書店編輯推薦

「美麗而富有哲思的小說,結局直擊人心。」──Buzzfeed

「和舒瓦的以往作品截然不同──具有史詩格局,卻又私密近人,令人驚奇讚嘆卻不眼花繚亂……如果這本書為我們呈現了任何啟示,那就是我們的行為與互動,所造成的效應比我們預想的更重大且恆久。」──Slate

「舒瓦以優美的筆調,探討了恆久的孤獨具有何種意義……艾荻是個獨立自主又魅力十足的角色,即便難關重重,仍然努力在世上留下自己的痕跡。」──今日美國報
