This book provides a succinct analysis of how world events over the past decade have played a role in the migration crisis including the recession, the outbreak of the Syrian conflict in 2011, Angela Merkel’s welcome of over a million people into Germany, Brexit and the election of Donald Trump as US president.

On one level it’s the story of various immigrants to Ireland: what they make of it, how they came to be here, where they came from. It’s also the story of immigration into Ireland; how that began and how it has changed over the years. Every single person on this earth has a story to tell, and as Hemingway put it: “Any man’s life, told truly, is a novel.” That is the message which this extraordinary book aims to send.
