Women on the beach: Humankind washed up on shore

article's cover image (Women on the beach: Humankind washed up on shore)
Unfortunately, this is not simply a presentation of a book that has touched me, as it’d be easier for me in that case to describe my feelings while reading it, feelings that keep intensifying day by day, because of the issue at hand. I wrote ‘Unfortunately’, because this novel, “Women on the beach”, by Tove Alsterdal, deals with stories of such unbelievable horror, similar to those we see daily occupying the front lines in the news titles about ‘illegal’ immigrants. People desperately trying to escape the horror back home, who find themeselves faced with the horror of ‘civilised’ Europe. The ‘unfortunate event’, if I am permitted to call it so, is the unbearable truth that this book reveals, which, although a work of fiction, is based on the author’s thorough research on real events that are interwoven with the current nightmarish reality my brain refuses to digest.

Tove Alsterdal: “We take charge of our lives, we move on!”

article's cover image (Tove Alsterdal: “We take charge of our lives, we move on!”)
On an impulse, I sent an email for interview to Tove Alsterdal and I felt surprised (again) of how receptive and approachable are certain people who although being famous for their work they have no sign of pomposity and I felt a certain amount of hope that everything may turn out better after all – for everyone-! Her book, “Women on the beach”, is a police noir- international best seller and talks about an issue that distress us a lot the last years -especially the last couple of months- the sociopolitical phenomenon of “illegal” immigration. At least as far as I am concerned “Women on the Beach” urged me to learn a little bit more about the cruel reality that illegal immigrants have to face.
