About this book
A contemporary anthology of stories and poems about displacement, disquiet and desire as brave, hesitant and eccentric characters cross borders to settle in new countries and to assimilate different cultures. Written by women, the pieces are reflective, surreal and humorous. They come with tolerance and humour. Preti Taneja asserts the need for ‘a multitude’ of voices, not one single story, on the topic of displacement. This is exactly what we have here.
