These are the stories of migration – the story of a Jamaican woman who remembers the Anansi stories of her childhood; of the Hindu woman who likens her native Poona to her new home in Leicester; of the woman from the Sudan “who was eight when the soldiers came”; of the Ukrainian who has lived in exile for fifty years; and of the prisoner who has stayed in seventeen towns but never set foot in one of them.

Kevin Fegan too is a migrant, from an Irish family who came to the Midlands for want of work. His story is here too.

"I wish it were ten times as long. His words are full of warm courage, and so are the people whose words he records" — Adrian Mitchell

“Kevin Fegan is a truly epic writer, who understands the broad sweeps of history and they can be illuminated to a dazzling effect by personal stories… we need writers like him who can see and describe the bigger picture.” — Ian McMillan
