Homeland

“One organisation wrote to a national newspaper saying that whatever I believed about literature, its nobility and reach, I couldn't escape the politics of my decision. Reluctantly, sadly, I must concede that this is the case. I come from a country of relative stability. We may have our homeless, but we have a homeland.”

Ian McEwan (on winning the Jerusalem Prize), The Guardian, 24th February, 2011
