May We Borrow Your Country is a contemporary collection of stories and poems that looks at dislocation and displacement with sympathy, tolerance and humour. They are peopled by courageous, poignant, eccentric individuals who cross borders, accommodate to new cultures and try to establish an identity in a new place. In the process, they encounter different versions of themselves, like reflections in a room of trick mirrors.
The stories and poems are written by women. They are evocative and multi-layered in their portrayal of relationships, family, ambition, careers and friendship. They offer a fresh, contemporary look at metamorphosis and many catch that fleeting moment of transition between the familiar and the new.
Foreword by Preti Taneja, author of We That Are Young, winner of the 2018 Desmond Eliot Prize.
