“When he left us, he stole all the words.”
Alex George, Setting Free the Kites

“We are all immigrants, a glorious confection of races and beliefs, united by the rock that we live on. As the years wash over us and new generations march into the future, family histories are subsumed into the greater narrative. We become, simply, Americans.”
Alex George, A Good American

“But love and pain are two sides of the same coin. You can't have one without the other. Sometimes that's how we know we're alive.”
Alex George, Setting Free the Kites
