亚当·曼斯巴赫(Adam Mansbach)名言

How do you sustain yourself when all the old structures people looked to for support - religion, family, ethnic solidarity - are crumbling, or feel so false that you refuse to avail yourself of them? What comes next?

当人们寻求支持的所有旧结构——宗教、家庭、民族团结——正在崩溃,或者感觉如此虚假以至于你拒绝利用它们时,你如何维持自己?接下来是什么?

To me, 'The End of the Jews' - both the title and the novel itself - is about the end of pat, uncritical ways of understanding oneself in the world.

对我来说,《犹太人的末日》——无论是书名还是小说本身——都是关于帕特的末日,一种不加批判的认识自己的方式。

There's a lot of demand to hear the new Kanye West album before it hits the streets. There's much less demand to read the new Phillip Roth novel.

有很多人要求在新的Kanye West专辑上街之前听到它。读菲利普·罗斯的新小说的需求要少得多。

Novels are pirated all the time, but it's hard to imagine that you're at work and you open up the attachment that your brother sent you and it's the new Phillip Roth novel.

小说一直都是盗版的,但很难想象你在工作,你打开你哥哥寄给你的附件,那就是菲利普·罗斯的新小说。

Of course, the opposite of white privilege is not blackness, as many of us seemed to think then; the opposite of white privilege is working to dismantle that privilege. But my particular hip-hop generation proved to be very serious about figuring it all out and staying engaged.

当然,白人特权的对立面不是黑人,正如我们许多人当时似乎认为的那样;白人特权的对立面是努力废除这种特权。但事实证明,我那一代嘻哈舞者非常认真地想搞清楚这一切并保持投入。

For me, most of the anxiety and difficulty of writing takes place in the act of not writing. It's the procrastination, the thinking about writing that's difficult.

对我来说,写作的焦虑和困难大多发生在不写作的时候。拖延和思考写作是困难的。

The city fought a $300 million, 18-year war on graffiti. New York Mayor John Lindsay declared war in 1972, and the battle for the transit system came later.

这座城市花了3亿美元,打了18年的涂鸦战争。纽约市长约翰·林赛1972年宣战,交通系统之争也在后来展开。

The thing I love about being a novelist is that with each project, you invent a new world. You approach it with a different set of aesthetic and structural ideas, and you grapple with a different series of problems in figuring out how to tell the story. And yet there are certain concerns that stay constant.

作为一个小说家,我喜欢的是,每一个项目,你都创造了一个新的世界。你用一套不同的美学和结构思想来处理这个问题,你要解决一系列不同的问题,找出如何讲述这个故事。但仍有一些担忧一直存在。
