Reviews
"Heartfelt, eye-opening, timely, essential: these stories remind us of the plight of refugees, people just like us, who are desperate to build new lives for themselves and their loved ones."--Christy Lefteri, bestselling author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo
"Simple, powerful stories told in refugees' own voices. I couldn't stop reading, hand to mouth, my chest tightening. A vital collaboration between two sharply observant writers who know how to get out of the way."
--Dina Nayeri, author of The Ungrateful Refugee
"This gut-wrenching collection forcefully documents a humanitarian crisis through the stories of five refugees in asylum purgatory in Greece, where they come to feel they are 'nothing but creatures made to eat, sleep and submit'."

-- "New York Times"
