Here is an anthology to start a conversation. It is varied in style, voice and subject matter, it questions and satirises in equal measure. Above all, it is a good read and that is surely the best way to make any challenge to the doublespeak we must daily contend with.
One of the themes of this collection is yearning – for a better life, for freedom, for love and friendship, for a sense of belonging, for truth. Each of our writers explores those grey areas of human experience not covered by politicians’ generalisations, seeking to find their truth.
Some short stories were previously published in: Refugees and Peacekeepers; My Europe and Tempest.
Contributors to Rebel Alliance include Penny Simpson, Petra McQueen, Naomi Hamill and Emma Bamford.
Key words: politics, refugees, Europe, EU, Brexit, US relations, climate change, dystopias and utopias
