the last book I ever read (On the Move: A Life by Oliver Sacks, excerpt twelve)

from On the Move: A Life by Oliver Sacks:

My sense of England as “home” took a beating in 1990, when my father died and the house on Mapesbury Road—where I was born and brought up and which I revisited and often stayed in when I returned to England, the house of which every inch was suffused for me with memories and emotions—was sold. I no longer felt I had a place to go back to, and my visits thereafter felt like visits and not like returns to my own country and people.
