Asylum : A Survivor's Flight from Nazi-Occupied Vienna Through Wartime France Paperback
Set in an about-to-be-demolished high-rise block of flats, various characters have arrived from a variety of situations; their lives and their stories, interweave, change and affect each other, and travel towards deeply moving, often funny, happy and painful outcomes.
At the core of the story are two asylum seekers: All fifteen-year-old Sunday wanted was a country that was democratic and respectful of human life.
All eight-year-old Rosa wanted was somewhere safe, away from the bad things of the past.
Through their eyes, ideas of Britain and belonging are explored.
Moving, thoughtful, outstanding and unforgettable.
