The acclaimed debut novel by the author of Little Fires Everywhere and Our Missing Hearts"A taut tale of ever deepening and quickening suspense." --O, the Oprah Magazine "Explosive . . . Both a propulsive mystery and a profound examination of a mixed-race family." --Entertainment Weekly"Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet." So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

伍綺詩 Celeste Ng

  在賓州出生,十歲那年和家人搬到俄亥俄州,生長於一個理工科氛圍濃厚的家庭, 父親是美國太空總署的物理學家,母親則是化學家,父母於六○年代時從香港移民至美國。伍綺詩小時候沒想過要走上寫作這條路,但有文字天賦的她在10歲即在 兒童雜誌上發表首篇作品,當年收到的美金兩元稿費沒有被花掉,現在仍是她珍藏的紀念。

  在哈佛大學主修英文時,曾想過從事記者或編輯等文字工作,卻從沒想到要當作家,畢業之際在導師的鼓勵下攻讀密歇根大學,取得寫作藝術創作碩士學位。畢業之後,她曾以教授寫作課程為生,也曾從事文字編輯工作。

   2012年,她的短篇故事Girls at Play獲得美國文學獎項「手推車獎」(Pushcart Prize)的肯定,許多短篇作品也受到國際媒體的關注。她花了六年時間撰寫第一本長篇小說《無聲告白》,以第三人稱的全知觀點敘事,述說一個家庭中,夫 妻、父母、子女以及兄弟姐妹之間的微妙關係,他們又是如何為了其他家人而犧牲部分的自我,卻選擇把愛埋沒在生活的縫隙之中,直到那些沒說出的話讓他們感到 窒息為止。

  身為一位小說家,伍綺詩堅信不論是現今或是將來、紙本或是電子書,閱讀小說為符合人類本性的活動;而每一種形式上的寫作都是移情的舉動,作家試著想像自己鑽進另一個人的心靈以及皮膚。近期成為全職作家,正在撰寫她的第二本小說。
