10. “The Dry” by Jane Harper

《迷雾中的小镇》(简•哈珀)

After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk
arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the
funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused
of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of
suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke’s steadfast claim
that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more
than one person knows they didn’t tell the truth back then, and Luke is
dead. Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective
question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates
to see if there’s more to Luke’s death than there seems to be,
long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them.
And Falk will find that small towns have always hidden big secrets.

8. “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” by Sherman Alexie

《不必说你爱本人》(薛曼•亚历斯)

Family relationships are never simple. But Sherman Alexie’s bond with
his mother Lillian was more complex than most. She plunged her family
into chaos with a drinking habit, but shed her addiction when it was on
the brink of costing her everything. She survived a violent past, but
created an elaborate facade to hide the truth. She selflessly cared for
strangers, but was often incapable of showering her children with the
affection that they so desperately craved. She wanted a better life for
her son, but it was only by leaving her behind that he could hope to
achieve it. It’s these contradictions that made Lillian Alexie a
beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated, and very human
woman. When she passed away, the incongruities that defined his mother
shook Sherman and his remembrance of her. Grappling with the haunting
ghosts of the past in the wake of loss, he responded the only way he
knew how: he wrote.

parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn’t a real Avery,
then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her
rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin
couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is
adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship
with the infinitely more glamorous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the
mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to
know himself and where he came from – and over his many years, will
struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more.
