Correspondences is an anthology that pairs writers, photographers and visual artists in the direct provision system in Ireland with Irish artists and writers.
The stories, poems, images and essays you’ll find here reflect the desperation that leads to migration, the hope carried through war and devastation, and the meaningful parallels between the Irish experience of famine and emigration and the experience of asylum seekers in Ireland today.
These are stories of frustration, anger, fear, but also of love; the deep love that leads parents, siblings, and partners to seek ‘another Ithaca’ in Ireland.
All proceeds from the sale of this anthology will be donated to MASI.
‘The call and response of outrage at injustice between the Irish and our visitors is compelling…This is an excellent book and as disturbing as it needs to be.’ The Irish Times
