Nina Sichel grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, the daughter of an American mother and a German-born father. Years later, she discovered that many other ex-pats felt the same alienation she had experienced upon returning "home" to the United States. Writing Out of Limbo, coedited by Sichel and Gene H. Bell-Villada, is an essay collection by those who've led international childhoods, usually because of a parent's job. We asked Sichel to explain why these "Third Culture Kids," as sociologists call them, gain a perspective on life that suits the challenges of the 21st century.
