I was born the year the Troubles began, in 1968. That world of violence was all I knew - people murdered, maimed, kneecapped, bombed. I don't remember a time without a major atrocity of some kind every week.

我出生于1968年麻烦之年。 我只知道那种暴力世界-人们被谋杀,致残,跪下,炸弹袭击。 我不记得每个星期都没有某种严重的暴行。

Irish fathers still have certain responsibilities, and by the time my two daughters turned seven, they could swim, ride a bike, sing at least one part of a Woody Guthrie song, and recite all of W. B. Yeats's 'The Song of Wandering Aengus.'

爱尔兰的父亲仍然负有一定责任,当我的两个女儿年满7岁时,他们可以游泳,骑自行车,唱伍迪·古斯里(Woody Guthrie)歌曲的至少一部分,并朗诵全部W。 B. 叶芝(Yeats)的《流浪之歌》。 '

I speak with a Northern Irish accent with a tinge of New York. My wife has a bit of a Boston accent; my oldest daughter talks with a Denver accent, and my youngest has a true blue Aussie accent. It's complicated.

我用北爱尔兰口音和纽约的色调讲话。 我的妻子有点波士顿口音。 我的大女儿讲的是丹佛口音,而我最小的女儿讲的是蓝色澳洲口音。 情况很复杂。

Our daughter's name Arwynn comes from Arwen in 'Lord of the Rings' because my wife and I met for the first time in the Eagle and Child pub in Oxford where J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis used to go to read out their stories to one another.

我们女儿的名字Arwynn是来自《指环王》中的Arwen,因为我和我的妻子在牛津大学的“鹰与儿童”酒馆(J. R. R. 托尔金和C. S. 刘易斯曾经去互相宣读他们的故事。

I met my wife in Oxford, fell in love with her, and followed her to New York. I was an illegal there for the first few years, until we got married, so I ended up doing lots of interesting jobs, some for a few days, some for a few months.

我在牛津遇到了我的妻子,爱上了她,并跟随她到了纽约。 在开始的几年里,我一直是非法的,直到我们结婚为止,所以我结束了很多有趣的工作,有的工作了几天,有的工作了几个月。

On my Wikipedia page, it used to say I was born in Belfast, Ireland, then it said Belfast, Northern Ireland, and then it said Belfast, U.K. So there was a little war going on about where Belfast is located.

在我的维基百科页面上,它曾经说我出生于爱尔兰的贝尔法斯特,然后说的是北爱尔兰贝尔法斯特,然后说的是美国贝尔法斯特。 K. 因此,贝尔法斯特的所在地发生了一点战争。
