During my breakdown, many things, tiny things I had not even registered before, had begun to torment me with guilt. I used to steal Splenda from Starbucks. I would go into a Starbucks whenever I needed the sweetener and would take a fistful of packets, even when I didn't buy a coffee.

在我崩溃的过程中,许多事情,一些我以前从未登记过的小事,开始让我感到内疚。我以前从星巴克偷斯普莱达。每当我需要甜味剂的时候,我都会去星巴克,甚至当我没有买咖啡的时候,我也会拿一把小包。

Seven years into writing a novel, I started to lose my mind. My thirty-seventh birthday had just come and gone, the end of 2008 was approaching, and I was constantly aware of how little I had managed to accomplish.

写小说七年了,我开始失去理智。我三十七岁的生日刚刚过去,2008年底就要到了,我时刻意识到我所取得的成就微乎其微。

It's easy when you grow up in fear to act out of fear. I don't want to embrace that fear; I prefer to be kind.

当你在恐惧中成长时,很容易出于恐惧而行动。我不想拥抱那种恐惧;我更喜欢和蔼可亲。

'Family Life' is a blueprint of my life. It was horrible and physically gruesome in a way the book doesn't attempt to capture. It was emotionally very bleak.

“家庭生活”是我人生的蓝图。这是可怕的和身体可怕的方式,这本书没有试图捕捉。在感情上非常凄凉。

I thought it was quite wonderful coming to America. I think immigration is a very difficult thing, but America is a very wonderful place.

我觉得来美国太棒了。我认为移民是一件非常困难的事情,但美国是一个非常美妙的地方。

阿基尔·沙玛

I think immigrants, when they're stressed, think that there's something wrong with America, when it's really just difficult to leave a country and all that you know.

我认为移民,当他们感到压力时,会认为美国有问题,当离开一个国家和你所知道的一切都很困难的时候。

When you read Chekhov, everything has an even gray tone. When you read 'Family Life', everything has an even white tone. It is almost like when you paint on paper, and you can see the paper through the paint.

当你读契诃夫时,一切都有一种均匀的灰色调。当你读《家庭生活》的时候,所有的东西都有一种均匀的白色调。就像你在纸上画画一样,你可以透过颜料看到纸。
