I Want To Go Home For­ever edited by

Loren B Lan­dau and Tanya Pam­palone is a pow­er­ful col­lec­tion of per­sonal sto­ries about xeno­pho­bia and be­long­ing in Gaut­eng.

Sisonke Msi­mang, ac­tivist and author of

Al­ways An­other Coun­try, says: “These are raw, hon­est per­sonal sto­ries — some heart­break­ing, some up­lift­ing. Beau­ti­fully told, each story is a study of jour­ney­mak­ing. No mat­ter where we may have been born, each of us seeks a place where we will be safe and re­spected for who we are. The sto­ries in this col­lec­tion il­lus­trate that no jour­ney is easy — each act of leav­ing and each at­tempt to be­gin again is tough. At their core, how­ever, they grap­ple with the mak­ing of a na­tion. These nar­ra­tives il­lus­trate the quest for dig­nity and tell the story of hu­man­ity and striv­ing, and am­bi­tion in the midst of pro­found dif­fi­culty. This book speaks to South African and African con­cerns, but at its heart it doc­u­ments global phe­nom­ena im­por­tant to any­one who cares about the world to­day.”
