Author(s): Lucy Popescu

Non-fiction general

A Country of Refuge, compiled and edited by human rights writer and activist Lucy Popescu, is an acutely relevant and tremendously thought-provoking anthology of brand new fiction, memoir, poetry and essays exploring what it really means to be a refugee. These powerful writings will change people's perspectives on the plight of those seeking asylum from conflict, poverty and terror.

This testament to the strength of the human spirit features some of Britain and Ireland's most renowned writers: Monica Ali, Sebastian Barry, William Boyd, Amanda Craig, Moris Farhi MBE, Elaine Feinstein, Tim Finch, Aminatta Forna, Hanif Kureishi, Marina Lewycka, Courttia Newland, Ruth Padel, Katharine Quarmby, Noo Saro Wiwa, Joan Smith, Roma Tearne and Alex Wheatle MBE, and more.

Articulating truths through the power of their words, they will challenge the way people think about and act towards those who are simply seeking a safe place to call home.
