Wasafiri Bundle – Crisis/Recovery

Exclusively on the Wasafiri website, purchase 4 titles for just £33 – plus a Wasafiri tote bag.

Wasafiri 107, explores crises both personal and collective and reaches towards new possibilities of renewal, resistance and recovery. For this special bundle, we looked back through our archive to highlight issues that all speak to this dual theme in unique ways: our special issues on Hong Kong writing and contemporary Brazilian literature, and the 'Refuge' issue from 2018, which examines asylum, exile and migration. These four issues draw together writing on resistance and survival in the wake of change.
