'May We Borrow Your Country’ is a collection of stories and poems that looks at dislocation and displacement with sympathy, tolerance and humour. These pieces are peopled by courageous, poignant, eccentric individuals who cross borders, accommodate to new cultures and try to establish an identity in a new place. In the process, they encounter different versions of themselves, like reflections in a room of trick mirrors.
They are evocative and multi-layered in their portrayal of relationships, family, ambition, careers and friendship. They offer a fresh, contemporary look at metamorphosis and many catch that fleeting moment of transition between the familiar and the new.
The collection has found its home with the wonderful Linen Press. Look out for it in January 2019.
