Published to mark the 70th Anniversary of the 1951 Refugee Convention, the fourth volume in Comma Press’s Refugee Tales series, welcomes new international perspectives and has a focus on detention during the COVID-19 pandemic. Real experiences of refugees are retold by authors such as Robert Macfarlane and Christy Lefteri. Hear one of the editors of the book David Herd, talk to one of the contributors, Khodadad Mohammadi, (from Afghanistan, now living in Germany) who shares his story.  

 

‘A courageous book… It gives faces to the faceless, and voices to the voiceless, humanizing the people that our society demonizes.’ – Jackie Kay
