I have no Roots: The Narcissists as a Ghost


I have no roots. I was born in Israel but left it many times and now have been away for 13 years. I haven't seen my parents since 1996. I have met my my niece and nephew for the first time in 2001. I haven't been in touch with any of my "friends". I haven't exchanged one additional word with my ex after we split up. I - an award winning author - am slowly forgetting my Hebrew. I do not celebrate any nation's holidays or festivals. I stay away from groups and communities. I wonder, an itinerant lone wolf. I was born in the Middle East, I write about the Balkans and my readers are mostly American.

It is not a temporary suspension of self-identity, of group-identity, of location, of mother tongue and of one's social circle. In my case, I have nowhere to go back to. I either burn the bridges or keep walking. I never look back. I detach and vanish.
