An extract from this essay:

 

"In my correspondence with DBC Pierre, I asked him what his thoughts were on the related terminologies of cosmopolitanism and a “cultural homelessness,” to which he replied: “Cosmopolitanism is a nice word—perhaps that's it. If so, it is a state reached through a condition of homelessness, followed by searching and incomplete assimilation, followed by what the heck, pónganme un taco (give me a taco).” And thus the return never becomes a journey to a heart of darkness, but an active conversation with past events and living presents as a way of looking back and moving forward within and without identity."
