"Compassion and a plea for peaceful co-existence are the common themes in a bright celebration of unity in difference"

Europa28 is an ambitious project organised by the Hay festival aiming to highlight the contribution of European women across literature, science and the arts. In this anthology, one female writer from each of the EU states, plus the UK, shares their vision for the future of Europe. Many write about freedom, and the wildly divergent pieces themselves make a statement about artistic freedom, including the freedom to be off the wall. Cheek by jowl, here are essays, stories, short plays and fragments of life writing.
