Produktbeschreibung
'Trilling [brings] his reader as close as possible to the actual circumstances of those who have found their way to Calais, or to Catania in Sicily or to London or to Athens, only to find themselves condemned to occupy space, rather than live.' Observer Each of the thousands of people who come to Europe in search of asylum every year brings with them a unique experience. But their stories don't end there. In Lights In The Distance, journalist Daniel Trilling draws on years of reporting to build a portrait of the refugee crisis, seen through the eyes of people who experienced it. Visiting camps and hostels, sneaking into detention centres and delving into his own family's history of displacement, Trilling weaves together the stories of people he met and followed from country to country. In doing so, he shows that the terms commonly used to define them - refugee or economic migrant, legal or illegal, deserving or undeserving - fall woefully short of capturing the complex realities. 'In Lights in the Distance, [Daniel Trilling] illuminates the vast human tragedy behind newspaper headlines about refugees.' Pankaj Mishra 'If knowledge is the foundation of action, then [Trilling] has done us a great service by turning masses and numbers into people whom we like, who we can see are like us.' New Statesman 'Subtle but effective . . . such a powerful book.' Irish Times

Autorenporträt
Daniel Trilling is the editor of New Humanist magazine and has reported extensively on refugees in Europe. His work has been published in the London Review of Books, Guardian, New York Times and others, and won a 2017 Migration Media Award. His first book, Bloody Nasty People: the Rise of Britain's Far Right, was longlisted for the 2013 Orwell Prize. He lives in London. Praise for Bloody Nasty People: 'With the threat posed by prejudice and bigotry ever greater at a time of economic crisis, Trilling's voice must be heard.' Owen Jones 'An indispensable guide to contemporary far-right British politics.' Will Self, Guardian 'A cracking book that respectfully weaves together testimonies and stories - of people and places - with national political formations, examining them alongside the deeper economic and cultural questions posed by globalisation.' Jon Cruddas, New Statesman 'A compelling narrative . . . Trilling challenges much conventional wisdom.' David Edgar, Guardian
