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.

我不回避自传写作,但我对我这么简单并不感兴趣。 最让我感动的事情通常是那些我必须弄清楚它对我自己的意义的事情。 人类用比喻来描述人类经验的能力真的很酷。

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.

一些创造性的写作程序似乎很邪恶,但是我在Irvine的经历却截然相反,我觉得他们真的很擅长于专注于每个作家的声音和环境。 当我觉得自己不得不写一个更典型的故事时,没有人真正喜欢它。

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,并与克里斯蒂·张(Christy Chang)一起写了关于袋鼠和蝙蝠的故事,后来她成为了一名外科医生。

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.

我不想感到的一件事是市场压力,所以我很高兴我喜欢教学,因为我可以依靠它来赚钱。 我认为,如果我不得不写一本必须卖得很好的书,那将是一场如此不同的比赛。

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,即使在我的第一本书中,写任何神奇的东西的乐趣在于它必须是物理的。 它必须扎根,在这个世界上非常重要。 然后,我开始研究这个新事物的所有后果。

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

当对语言进行优美而有趣的处理时,它对身体会感觉良好:营养丰富; 焕发青春。
