View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

A collection of short fiction by international authors, this anthology asks artist émigrés to describe the forces that pushed them to places far away from home—and how they propel their fictional characters on similar journeys. The resulting stories reveal a rich tangle of motives for departure, including romantic dreams, big ambitions, family ties, and flight from poverty and persecution. The contributors include Niki Aguirre, Naomi Alderman, Tahmina Anam, Monica Arac de Nyeko, Brian Chikwava, Junot Diaz, Romesh Gunesekera, Nam Le, and Zoe Wicomb, all of whom explore the complexities of 21st-century migration in locales from Abidjan, Accra, and Cape Coast to Dijon, London, and Los Angeles.

Book Description Peepal Tree Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Most migrants arrive at their destinations by a combination of serendipity and choicelessness. This has been Nii Parkes' own experience. The question - how did you arrive here? - is always answered with a convoluted mix of myth, love, family ties, budget, language, persecution, opportunity and interruption. In the answers to that question lie the connecting lines of his scatter points - Abidjan, Grimsby, Cape Coast, London, Accra, Manchester, Los Angeles, and Dijon. To further answer that question he has brought together a distinguished selection of contemporary writers who share parallel experiences and invited them to contribute short fiction to this anthology. With stories from Romesh Gunesekera, Zoe Wicomb, Nam Le, Monica Arac de Nyeko, Tahmina Anam, Brian Chikwava, Niki Aguirre, Junot Diaz and Naomi Alderman, this is a rich mix of writing re-imagining the constantly evolving dynamics of trans-national migration in the 21st century, exploring the complex fabric of the world that contemporary migrants negotiate.
