  3. “Do you think we’re abnormal?’ I asked in a whisper.” p.151
  4. “Perhaps we all changed after Nsukka – even Papa – and things were destined to not be the same, to not be in their original order.” p.209
  5. “Those shoulders that bloomed in Nsukka, that grew wide and capable, have sagged in the thirty-one months that he has been here.” p.300
