Product description

Review

"Full of powerful writing. Many of the best contributions come from writers who are refugees, or second-generation refugees, themselves … Again and again, these writers argue for empathy." (TLS)

"A powerful, and frequently harrowing, collection … I read it with fascination" (Penelope Lively)

"A beautiful insight into the painful individuality of the refugee" (Jon Snow)

"A first-class collection of essays and poems, stories and memoirs. Addictively readable, they are strong, angry, compassionate and enlightening." (Sue Gaisford The Tablet)

"It is a moving, poignant, sometimes painful but always enlightening book … rich and wide-ranging…" (Judith Vidal-Hall Literary Review)
