At home everywhere, or nowhere? By choice or by necessity, ‘third culture kids’ grow up in a culture different from that of their parents, often moving between worlds with linguistic and diplomatic fluency. These writers pause to reflect on how coming of age with a dynamic sense of home has shaped their lives and work.

Di rumah di mana saja, atau tidak di mana pun? Karena pilihan atau karena kebutuhan, ‘anak-anak budaya ketiga’ tumbuh dalam budaya yang berbeda dari orangtua mereka, sering berpindah-pindah antara tempat dengan kefasihan linguistik dan diplomatik. Para penulis ini berhenti sejenak untuk merenungkan bagaimana rasanya memiliki rumah yang tak lagi berpindah telah membentuk kehidupan dan pekerjaan mereka.
