Journeys and Place description

Powerful accounts of lives straddling countries tell of the dislocation of life in a state of exile, and the courage of imagining a new home. Moreno Giovannoni writes tales of leaving and returning home in The Fireflies of Autumn. Sisonke Msimang tells of growing up in exile from apartheid-era South Africa in her memoir Always Another Country. Future D. Fidel describes fleeing war to find sanctuary but strangeness in Prize Fighter.
