Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Here are sixteen different tales from people who have been forced through no fault of their own to escape from their previous homes to the safety of Britain. Menaka takes time to adapt to our climate and fashions. Vesna was just 16 when she escaped from Bosnia to a new home in Penrith. Nimer still fears that he is being followed although he is safe in England. Xenia's parents are stateless. Nina lived in cold, leaky, sub-standard rooms when first reaching London. Toni endured two weeks in a dark insanitary ship from Lithuania. Ali tells of his terror that the customs man would not allow him in. Jade tells of her husband being shot, her children abducted and of her own rapes. She is still having nightmares about her life in Uganda. All these immigrants have struggled to make a go of life in a strange country they would have preferred not to go to. They endured racism and struggled to learn English but they all did enough to produce eye-opening and heartwarming stories.

Format: Paperback
Anthologies are often hard to read, jolting from one writer to another, but that's the beauty of this book - it's a collection of migrant tales and together they form a fascinating community of different voices. The change of tone and language is part of the pleasure. From Menaka Raman's wry tale of hand-me-down cardigans to Xenia Crockett's earnest celebration of freedom, this is a heartening book full of insight into what makes us belong - or not.
