  故事開始於1766年的一場船難。比利.漫威(Billy Marvel),悲劇的唯一倖存者,獨自一人試著重返社會,直到他在倫敦劇院找到一份演員工作,並展開一段跨越五個世代的戲劇王朝之旅。

  1990年,約瑟夫(Joseph Jervis)逃離寄宿學校,投靠他從未見過的遠房親戚:艾伯特叔叔。正當約瑟夫掙扎著在這世上尋找一塊屬於他的立足之地時,卻也正誤打誤撞,揭開了漫威家族錯綜複雜,卻又與約瑟夫命運相繫的一連串秘密。

  《The Marvels》是《雨果的秘密》作者Brian Selznick創新之作,本書最特別之處在於內容分為兩大部分,約400頁的篇幅是插畫,三分之一的篇幅則是文字描述。插圖和散文提供了兩個不同的故事,但在小說結尾,作者卻巧妙地匯集兩個看似不相關的故事架構,創造出一個複雜、但卻有十足凝聚力的故事。

  充滿活力的人物描寫,再加上曲折的故事情節,全新的創作經驗,《The Marvels》將是你2015年必讀的最佳創意小說。

A breathtaking new voyage from Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick.

Two stand-alone stories--the first in nearly 400 pages of continuous pictures, the second in prose--create a beguiling narrative puzzle.

The journey begins at sea in 1766, with a boy named Billy Marvel. After surviving a shipwreck, he finds work in a London theatre. There, his family flourishes for generations as brilliant actors until 1900, when young Leontes Marvel is banished from the stage.

Nearly a century later, runaway Joseph Jervis seeks refuge with an uncle in London. Albert Nightingale's strange, beautiful house, with its mysterious portraits and ghostly presences, captivates Joseph and leads him on a search for clues about the house, his family, and the past.

A gripping adventure and an intriguing invitation to decipher how the two stories connect, The Marvels is a loving tribute to the power of story from an artist at the vanguard of creative innovation.
