About the Author

Patrick Kingsley is the Guardian's inaugural migration correspondent. An award-winning journalist, he has reported from more than twenty-five countries and is the author of The New Odyssey and How to Be Danish.


[A] a deeply reported account... Kingsley gives a sympathetic and often damning portrayal of the extraordinary risks and efforts that so many refugees have taken to find a new life. He puts a human face on the hyper-politicized refugee crisis while conveying the magnitude of the crisis.
Tremendously impressive...The details are vivid, sometimes shocking, always telling; and the desperation and courage of those such as Hashem al-Souki are profoundly moving. The story of what lies behind the continuing and appalling news from the Mediterranean has rarely been told so strongly.--Phillip Pullman
[An] an urgent appeal to humanity and reason...a compelling read.
Kingsley is doing the world an invaluable service by showing that migrants are particular and human, not collective and a group, and that each of them--just like us--has a story of their own.--David Hare
[One of] the most important books you will read this year...[Kingsley's] experience reporting from the front lines of the crisis gives an unrivaled perspective...powerful.--Suzanne Lynch
An essential account of a crisis we've hardly begun to grapple with.
