“The snow has started melting now. She imagined people exiting their homes and, on patches of ground glimpsed for the first time in months, finding lost items- a glove, keys, pens and pennies. The weight of snow pressing familiarity out of the object, so that the glove placed beside its former pair looked no more than a distant relative. And what then do you do? Throw away both gloves, or wear them mismatched to acknowledge the miracle of their reunion? “

– Kamila Shamsie, ‘Home Fire’
