艾米·本德(Aimee Bender)名言

I like birthday cake. It's so symbolic. It's a tempting symbol to load with something more complicated than just 'Happy birthday!' because it's this emblem of childhood and a happy day.

我喜欢生日蛋糕。太有象征意义了。这是一个很诱人的象征,可以用比“生日快乐”更复杂的东西来表达因为这是童年和快乐的一天的象征。

When language is treated beautifully and interestingly, it can feel good for the body: It's nourishing; it's rejuvenating.

当语言被优美而有趣地对待时,它能给身体带来良好的感觉:它滋养身体;它正在恢复活力。

For me, even in my first book, the pleasures of writing anything magical is that it has to be physical. It has to be grounded and very much in this world. Then, I get to play with all the consequences of this new thing.

对我来说,即使是在我的第一本书中,写任何神奇的东西的乐趣是它必须是物理的。它必须扎根在这个世界上。然后,我开始玩弄这个新事物的所有后果。

One thing I don't want to feel is marketplace pressure, so I'm really glad I enjoy teaching because I can rely on that for a salary. I think it would be such a different game if I had to write a book that has to sell well.

有一件事我不想感受到市场的压力,所以我真的很高兴我喜欢教书,因为我可以依靠它来获得薪水。如果我要写一本畅销书的话,我想这将是一个完全不同的游戏。

I liked Hans Christian Andersen because the tales were so dark and tragic.

我喜欢汉斯·克里斯蒂安·安徒生,因为故事是如此黑暗和悲剧性。

As a kid, I liked making up stories, and I wrote a story about a kangaroo and a bat with Christy Chang, and she went on to become a surgeon.

小时候,我喜欢编故事,我和张丽缇写了一个关于袋鼠和蝙蝠的故事,她后来成为了一名外科医生。

Some creative writing programs seem evil, but my experience at Irvine was totally the opposite, where I feel like they were really good at focusing in on each writers voice and setting. When I felt like I was obligated to write a story that was more typical, no one really liked it.

有些创意写作项目看起来很邪恶,但我在欧文的经历却完全相反,我觉得他们真的很擅长关注每个作家的声音和背景。当我觉得我有义务写一个更典型的故事时,没有人真正喜欢它。

艾米·本德

I don't eschew autobiographical writing, but I'm not interested in mine to be so straightforward. The things that tend to move me the most are often those that I have to figure out its meaning for myself. The human being's ability to make a metaphor to describe a human experience is just really cool.

我不回避自传体写作,但我对我的自传体写作如此直截了当不感兴趣。最能打动我的往往是那些我必须自己弄清楚它的意义的东西。人类用隐喻来描述人类经历的能力真的很酷。
