为了追寻艺术的完整性,而去了一个荒岛,在那里主人公会有什么遭遇呢?

Photographer Jake Mayfield, undertaking a personal quest for artistic integrity, finds beauty, passion and racial discord on the lush and feral island of Soufriere. On his first day there he has a run-in with Rollo Joseph, a dangerous pseudo-rasta whose presence haunts him both physically and psychologically as their conflict escalates by surprising yet almost inevitable degrees. Mayfield takes refuge in the company of Sheila Faber, the German proprietor of the Red Ginger Restaurant and Rooms, and in the arms of her employee Rita Blanford, a reticent native girl.

In a panorama of island life the story moves back and forth from the streets of Granville, the capital town and Rollo’s turf, to the verdant surroundings of the Red Ginger and the tropical forests of the island’s highest peak, to the ramshackle seaside village of Pagan Bay, as Mayfield’s journey spirals downward into paranoia and criminal tourism. Part existential adventure, part love story, told in the candid voice of an American antihero, this earthy and idiosyncratic novel is a descriptive and sometimes humorous account of man’s essential dilemmas, a microcosm of sex, war and survival.

  • About the author

  • 大爱此书

    首先必须说我非常喜欢这本书。可以说当我拿起这本书开始阅读的时候我就被摄影师杰克梅菲尔德描绘的景象所吸引了。这本书令我爱不释手,很希望一直读完,但遗憾的是试读文章只能浏览一部分。作者非常善用景色描写,在阅读中我总有一种身临其境的感觉。如果你也厌烦了现实中的生活,想要到那充斥着部落间的斗争和野性原始生活的热带岛屿上一睹……展开↓
