relative distances

I'm enjoying the hell out of Halldor Laxness's Independent People (which surprises me a bit, since Icelandic sheep farming is not really an interest of mine.) Best line so far:

Two sons were drowned in a distant ocean, and one son and a daughter had disappeared to a land even more remote, America, which is farther than death.

Yeah, I feel like that sometimes.
