A Guardian Best Summer 2018 Book


Across the Big Blue Sea on the Guardian

Across the Big Blue Sea is a Guardian best summer book 2018!

"Recently optioned to become a film, Katja Meier’s timely memoir 'Across the Big Blue Sea: Good Intentions and Hard Lessons in an Italian Refugee Home' avoids easy sentiment in favour of honesty and humour. The African women we meet at this Tuscan refugee home are fierce, scared, brave, vulnerable — triumphant yes, but human too. A beautifully complex account." - Taiye Selasi, the Guardian Best Summer Books 2018
