Offered as a modern day reworking of the Canterbury Tales, this book brings together the stories of fourteen real-life refugees whose voyage to the UK has not been a journey of spiritual salvation, rather one of sheer, physical survival. Told by leading novelists and poets (inclu...ding Ali Smith, Chris Cleave, Marina Lewycka, Patience Agbabi, and Avaes Mohammed), these Tales have been developed in collaboration with refugees, former immigration detainees, and those who work with them. With titles like The Detainee s Tale, The Appellant s Tale and The Unaccompanied Minor s Tale, each is based on close conversations with the people behind the stories (whose anonymity is preserved for reasons of security), and offers a compelling, shocking and truthful account of what it means to seek asylum in the UK.
