Lost Between features a host of established and emerging writers from the immense literary landscapes of both Ireland and Italy. From a father and son emigrating from Famine-stricken Ireland in search of a better life, to a donor looking for meaning in a lost relationship with his son, to Belfast in the turbulent year of 1976, the stories and poems featured in this anthology touch on the sense of displacement that stems from migration, detachment and rapidly shifting social identities. The individual works stand proudly by themselves to leave a lasting impression, and when read together they emerge to form a diverse, soulful and evocative collection that will charm and inspire.

‘All writing is an act of translation – the translation of experience into words, into image and metaphor. The fifteen writers whose work forms this anthology take displacement as their theme and their writing is a rich mix of poetry and prose, their approaches as diverse as the writers themselves.’
— From the Foreword by Catherine Dunne and Federica Sgaggio
