Thanks for this! I have to read that.

I am finally reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez's _The Autumn of the Patriarch_, which looks as though it might be about a place that has lost track of its borders and everything has gotten mixed up together, with a receding coast and a government house where one might have to brush a hen off the table before signing an important document. This made me think of that book because it is the opposite: a place that has lost its borders, rather than a place or person that can never be unconscious of its life on the border.

"I want to feel words swimming in my throat like fighting fish that refuse to be hooked on a line."

That just made my day, Terri!
