Shyam Selvadurai
“She is just a woman who life has made different. This is her strange way of trying to love you.”
Shyam Selvadurai, The Hungry Ghosts

Ramona Ausubel
“You know that smell, when you put your nose up to a pine tree?" I told her I did perfectly. "No matter how long it has been, you always will. Like you are storing a part of that tree in your own body. ... Everything stays true. You are yourself, no matter how much you have to change.”
Ramona Ausubel, No One is Here Except All of Us

“In writing this book, I have come to feel like a kind of immigrant in my own life, inhabiting a world of reflections and images of people I can't fully know, some of whom are dead, and I see now that my life has been shaped by this network, in ways I didn't always perceive.”
Zachary Lazar, I Pity the Poor Immigrant: A Novel

Ruth Ozeki
“Sometimes when she told stories about the past her eyes would get teary from all the memories she had, but they weren't tears. She wasn't crying. They were just the memories, leaking out.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

Kim Echlin
“Our disappeared were everywhere, irresistible, in waking, in sleeping, a reason for violence, a reason for forgiveness, destroying the peace we tried to possess, creeping between us as we dreamed, leaving us haunted by the knowledge that history is not redeemed by either peace or war but only fingered to shreds and left to our children.”
Kim Echlin, The Disappeared
