Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, 22-year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George—publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide—and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite—heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus’s ancestors—they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.

A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism—the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today.




 

一九五四年的芝加哥。當父親蒙特羅斯失踪時,二十二歲的退伍軍人阿提克斯•透納踏上了新英格蘭的尋父之旅,陪他去的還有喬治叔叔(他是《黑人安全旅行指南》的出版者)和童年好友利蒂霞。在前往布雷斯懷特先生莊園的途中(莊園的繼承人曾經是阿提克斯一位祖先的主人),他們經歷了美國白人世界的恐怖,又遇到了彷彿從喬治讀過的怪誕故事中迸出的惡靈。
 
《逃出絕命村》融合了超越時間的魔法、權勢、希望和自由,觸及兩個黑人家庭的不同成員,它是一篇描繪慘烈的種族歧視的集錦,這個恐怖的幽靈至今仍困擾著世人。
