A Country of Refuge: An Anthology of Writing on Asylum Seekers

by Lucy Popescu (Editor) - £8.99  Cornerstone (Unbound) (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783522682 | ISBN 10: 1783522682

A Country of Refuge is a poignant, thought-provoking and timely anthology of writing on asylum seekers from some of Britain and Irelandís most influential voices.
 
Compiled and edited by human rights activist and writer Lucy Popescu, this powerful collection of short fiction, memoir, poetry and essays explores what it really means to be a refugee: to flee from conflict, poverty and terror; to have to leave your home and family behind; and to undertake a perilous journey, only to arrive on less than welcoming shores.
 
These writings are a testament to the strength of the human spirit. The contributors articulate simple truths about migration that will challenge the way we think about and act towards the dispossessed and those forced to seek a safe place to call home.
