Jhumpa Lahiri

Though he looked like any other Bengali, he felt an allegiance with the foreigners now. He shared with them a knowledge of elsewhere. Another life to go back to. The ability to leave.
-Jhumpa Lahiri, "Brotherly Love" in The New Yorker

In my case, the inability to leave, yet longing to go back to another life.
