The Search for Identity in This Side of Paradise

- The Search for Identity in This Side of Paradise   In F.

Hope for the Other

- Every opinion or analysis must have a perspective from which it is formed. These analyses construct a narrative involving a “favored” side and an “other” side, based on the place from which the analyst writes.
