“This was--small talk, Hero thought to herself. Though why people called it small, she didn't know. The effort it scraped out of her felt immense, exhausting, like she should have studied for days beforehand just to be ready for it, like she'd need to sleep a dreamless sleep all night just to recover from it.”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart

“Baggage means no matter how far you go, no matter how many times you immigrate, there are countries in you you’ll never leave”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart

“You've been foreign all your life. When you finally leave, all you're hoping for is a more bearable kind of foreignness.”
