Kelinu waits for his telegram from the Queen of England. He has a few years to go but he’ll wait. His niece thinks he’s a fool. He was in the service of the Queen only a year, all those years ago. Times have changed.
In these stories people strive to make a place, a living, a life with meaning in a new country or sense in an old one: from zero hour contracts in Bridgend and Munich to scraping a living as a mermaid on the streets of Barcelona. A woman tends a beautiful garden she knows will be taken away from her while another sends her child to a school concert dressed as a dinosaur. A man attends one more demonstration while another explains to his daughter where he is really from.
In this diverse and fascinating anthology, writers from across Europe embark on a journey of independence and belonging.
