艾伦·乔斯(Alan Cheuse)名言

We want a world with both historians and novelists, don't we? Not with one or the other. Every fiction writer crosses the line that divides artistry and documentation - or erases it.

我们想要一个既有历史学家又有小说家的世界,不是吗?不是一个或另一个。每一个小说作家都跨越了艺术性和文献性的界限——或者将其抹去。

阅读是生活的一部分,也是生活的一部分。它让我们可以过上其他的生活,如果我们没有拿起那些书的话,我们可能无法过上这些生活。
