If you’ve made a living abroad, coronavirus gives homesickness a new edge | Emma Brockes | Opinion


TThe longest I’ve been without seeing England is two years, a break taken after my children were born when I couldn’t face the flight. I must have missed the place: I remember frantic old episodes of Inspector Morse as if they were home movies. But like everything about this period that doesn’t directly involve babies, I can’t quite get the memory back. In addition, my homesickness was alleviated by one major factor: people came to visit me.
