“It wasn't only our country they occupied," Irene explained to Amir Shah. "They occupied our minds.”
Sorayya Khan, Five Queen's Road

“As much as Sajida once loved him, she thought it unjust that her daughter, forsaken by her father, should have any physical likeness to him at all.”
Sorayya Khan, Noor

“Noor was Sajida's secret. She knew the exact moment her child was conceived. Purple passed slowly, the lowest of clouds, over her eyes. Bathed in such magnificent color, Sajida lay perfectly still. Much later, she would try to relive the exact moment, as if she needed to understand how the fact of her child could have entered her body and mind at the same time. But Sajida would not summon the gentle shade ever again.”
Sorayya Khan, Noor

“They make a desolation and call it peace.”
Gaius Cornelius Tacitus, C. Cornelii Taciti Germania, Agricola, Et de Oratoribus Dialogus

“They had left their cities, but they carried their cities with them, as a trust, on their shoulders. That's how it usually is. Even when cities are left behind, they don't stay behind. They seize on you even more. When the earth slips out from under your feet, that's when it really surrounds you . . . ”
Intizar Husain, Basti

“A good book ... leaves you wanting to reread the book. A great book compels you to reread your own soul.”
Richard Flanagan, The Narrow Road to the Deep North

“My mother was my first country, the first place I ever lived.”
