My Favourite Books about Migrants

24 Apr

 

Until a few years ago books about migrants and migration wasn’t really something I’d read. Then I moved to England and at UCL ended up 0n the “Word and Image – Migrant Literature and Film” course because I liked the interdisciplinary angle but also because it was something I could connect with from personal experience. I became really interested in how these stories raise questions about belonging, national identity and place attachment.

Since then I’ve been in love with the genre and whenever I come across another book written by or about a migrant I have to pick it up to see how much of my own story I can find mirrored in theirs. So I have decided to dedicate a blog post to write about some of the amazing books about migration I have read until now.
