  4. Only when I came to America did I think of myself as British.

  16. They were both academics, but my dad had to get a job on the railway, and my mum had to get a job in the Post Office. It was pretty hard in terms of the racism they had to endure.
  17. Personally, I think it would have been really nice, if ‘Lost’ had just one season.
  18. My parents moved to England with that immigrant ethos of self-betterment, but I don’t think they expected the kind of grief they experienced.
