看哈利波特學英文---作者羅琳(JK Rowling)的成名故事

PeraPera | 2020年12月13日

世界上所有人都知道那個閃電疤痕的男孩,羅琳(JK Rowling)因為<哈利波特>而紅遍世界,成為第一個億萬富翁的作家。而她從來沒有想過她會變得如此有名,成名之前,一個單親母親帶著年幼的女兒,她差點流浪街頭,領著政府的救濟金,那些在咖啡廳撰寫哈利波特小說的日子是她暫時逃脫現實的避風港,能恣意的於想像中悠游。成名之後她必須習慣鎂光燈下的新生活。

 
 
 

This(Harry Potter) was a children’s book. A children’s book moreover that I’ve been told repeatedly wasn’t very commercial. Because I’ve been turned down a lot. So I went from utter obscurity. It was like being a Beattle that came a point when it’s crazy.

哈利波特(這本書)是寫給小孩看的。別人告訴我很多次,說童書沒有很大的商業利益,我也曾多次被退稿。所以我真的是從沒沒無聞的小卒,像披頭四一樣,在一夕間變得家喻戶曉。

I came from a place where I was a single mother and it really was hand to mouth at one point. It was as literally as poor as you get in Britain without being homeless at one point. If you ever being there, you will never ever take for granted that you don’t need to worry.

我是個單親媽媽,有段日子真的三餐不繼,很可能就要流落街頭的情況。如果你曾經歷過這些,你絕對不會將衣食無虞的日子視為理所當然。

What do you actually think money has done for you? What does it do? It frees you. That’s what it does, it frees you. That’s why it’s like a superpower.

你覺得錢給你什麼幫助? 金錢之於你是甚麼? 金錢給你自由。這就是它的功能,這也是為什麼金錢就像超能力一樣。

I was a writer. I had no one near me either professionally or personally who could in any way helped me when I had questions like: what do you do when the pres is searching your bins. That really crazy stuff.

我是個作家。(剛成名時)沒有任何人能給我在專業上或私人事情上任何幫助,例如我不知道當媒體在翻我家的垃圾桶時我應該做什麼,成名之後發生的瘋狂的事情。

I said I would need to be with someone who’s intelligent because I just value that. I said I would really like him to have his life in his own career. I thought these were really basic things. Integrity was very important and kindness and a very strong sense of who he was. These were things that I would really like.

(關於未來的伴侶)我說我會想要一個聰明的人,因為這是我著重的特質。另外,我會希望他能有個自己很投入的事業。我認為這是很基本的事。正直、善良、很了解自己,這些是我喜歡的特質。
