Refugee Tales: Volume III

Monica Ali, Lisa Appignanesi, Bernardine Evaristo, Patrick Gale, Emma Parsons

These are not fictions. Nor are they testimonies from some distant, brutal past, but the frighteningly common experiences of Europe’s new underclass - refugees. While those with ‘citizenship’ enjoy basic human rights, people seeking asylum can be detained without charge for years, held in Kafka-esque uncertainty. Here, poets and novelists retell the stories of individuals who have direct experience of Britain’s policy of indefinite immigration detention. Presenting their accounts anonymously, as modern day counterparts to the pilgrims' stories in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, this book offers rare, intimate glimpses into otherwise untold suffering.
