Quotes by Katie Kitamura  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“How many times are we offered the opportunity to rewrite the past and therefore the future, to reconfigure our present personas - a widow rather than a divorcee, faithful rather faithless? The past is subject to all kinds of revision, it is hardly a stable field, and every alteration in the past dictates an alteration in the future. Even a change in our conception of the past can result in a different future, different to the one we planned.”
Katie Kitamura, A Separation

“I thought—I want to go home. I want to be in a place that feels like home. Where that was, I did not know.”
Katie Kitamura, Intimacies
tags: home

“In the end, what is a relationship but two people, and between two people there will always be room for surprises and misapprehensions, things that cannot be explained. Perhaps another way of putting it is that between two people, there will always be room for failures of imagination.”
Katie Kitamura, A Separation
