Finding Home: The Real Stories of Migrant Britain

by Emily Dugan - £8.99  Icon Books Ltd (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785780530 | ISBN 10: 1785780530

Award-winning reporter Emily Dugan�s Finding Home follows the tumultuous lives of a group of immigrants, all facing intense challenges in their quest to live in the UK.
 
Syrian refugee Emad set up the Free Syrian League and worked illegally in the UK to pay for his mother to be smuggled across the Mediterranean on a perilous trip from Turkey. Even if she survives the journey, Emad knows it will be an uphill struggle to get her into Britain.
 
Australian therapist Harley risks deportation despite serving the NHS for ten years and being told by the Home Office she could stay. Teaching assistant Klaudia is one of thousands of Polish people now living in Boston, Lincolnshire � a microcosm of poorly managed migration. Aderonke, a leading Manchester LGBT activist, lives in a tiny B&B room in Salford with her girlfriend, Happiness, and faces deportation and persecution.
 
Dugan�s timely and acutely observed book reveals the intense personal dramas of ordinary men and women as they struggle to find somewhere to call home. It shows that migration is not about numbers, votes or opinions: it is about people.
