Review of 'The Silver Throat of the Moon', editor Jennifer Langer, Five Leaves £9.99

In a growing period of intolerance towards immigrants and asylum seekers this book, edited by Jennifer Langer (herself the daughter of an asylum seeker), tries to understand not just the pain of asylum seekers' experience - manifested in alienation, marginalisation and identity through the poetic rhythms and prose - but also the complexity and diversity of literary styles, cultures of writers, and their concerns from different regions. The collection includes a wide range of writers, from Angola to Iran. It is arranged into two major sections.
