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.”
