Outlanders: Stories of the Displaced

Outlanders is a compilation of ten real-life stories from
refugees and asylum seekers, whom the author met while working in the field of
refugee resettlement in the US and Ireland. They are old people and young, recently arrived and
well established, originating from Afghanistan, Burma, Laos, Somalia, Iraq,
South Africa, Bosnia and Palestine.

Outlander s
is the first work of its kind to explore the subject from a creative
perspective, setting it apart from previous journalistic work available on the
subject. The stories are presented in a style that immerses the reader in the
journey of the refugee, the sights, smells, sounds they experienced, how it
felt along the way. These unique individual narratives are bound together by recurring themes: daily
life, the eruption of conflict and the privations endured to escape it. Outlanders
offers a glimpse into the lives of the displaced, not through screen or
newsfeed, but through the very eyes of those who survived.
