“We are all children who lose our parents, all of us, every man and woman and boy and girl, and we too will all be lost by those who come after us and love us, and this loss unites humanity, unites every human being, the temporary nature of our being-ness, and our shared sorrow, the heartache we each carry and yet too often refuse to acknowledge in one another,”
― Mohsin Hamid, Exit West
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book at times reading it because often I had no sense of its trajectory. Which after finishing, I think, may have been the point. Definitely recommend.
