来源: 英语作文网 时间: 2011-07-22 阅读:

  Sales of To Kill A Mockingbird have risen by an astonishing 123 per cent on Amazon.co.uk after David and Victoria Beckham chose to name their daughter after its author Harper Lee. The novel, which was first published in 1960, rose to number 38 in the bestsellers charts after the power couple's naming of their little girl prompted fans to read the classic book。

  小说《To Kill A Mockingbird》(杀死一只知更鸟)因万人迷贝克汉姆与辣妹的爱女Harper Seven降生销量大增了123%,喜爱小贝夫妇的粉丝们争锋抢购小说来一睹“小七”名字的奥秘。据悉,就在辣妹轰轰烈烈的“产女新闻”狂轰滥炸整整一个礼拜后,小贝终于透露了爱女Harper Seven的名字来由,竟然和维多利亚酷爱的一本小说有关。虽然一直以来的报道称辣妹从不读书,但是这一回辣妹的“知书达理”的“文化人”形象因女儿的出世而被大家所知,该书的第一版在1960年首次印刷成功,因小贝夫妇的“强烈推荐”,一跃排上“畅销图书排行榜”榜单的第38位,后劲十足。

  Talking about how they chose the name earlier this week, David said in a video on his Facebook page they had decided on Harper after Lee, who is Victoria's favourite author. He said: 'A lot of thought goes into our children's names and Harper was a name that we've loved for a long time for a couple of reasons. 'One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong, passionate book. That's where Harper came from.'

  在谈论到宝贝千金的名字“小七”时,已经“四次当爹”的小贝在自己脸谱网上的微博上毫不掩饰自己的喜悦之情,他说道:“我女儿的名字含义丰富,最终选定这个名字的原因有很多,其中一个就是妻子维多利亚最喜欢的小说《杀死一只知更鸟》的作者Harper Lee有关,这是一本十分励志的小说,颇具文学意味。”

  The revelation that it is Victoria's favourite book may surprise some fans, because it was widely thought she had never read a book. However in an interview six years ago, she insisted she did read books, but didn't usually get a chance to finish them due to her busy schedule. Over the weekend, proud new father David took a picture of Victoria and Harper as they slept. He also posted the touching picture on Facebook, gushing, 'I took this picture of my two girls sleeping...' A similar picture was posted by Victoria on Twitter and the footballer couldn't look any more tender as he cradled his daughter。

  此次辣妹产女事件全球媒体等待多日终于喜笑颜开,单单是女儿起名一事都逃不过媒体的热炒。据透露,大家都认为辣妹属于从不看书人群中的一员,但是,当媒体翻出辣妹在6年前受访时表示自己偶尔会看书,但是因工作忙碌,从未读完任何一本小说。此外,万人迷小贝还在自己的微博上放上爱女“小7”和爱妻维多利亚的熟睡照片,和大家一起分享喜获千金的喜悦之情。
