Huma Imtiaz in Bookworms United
"But do you know this idea of the imaginary homeland? Once you set out from shore on your little boat, once you embark, you'll never truly be at home again.What you've left behind exists only in your memory, and your ideal place becomes some strange imaginary concoction of all you've left behind at every stop."

-The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud.
