A brilliant and haunting book that delves deep into the real story of Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, the largest in the world. Ben Rawlence, who has spent years in the camp, provides a clear-eyed but harrowing glimpse of life in the camp for its destitute occupants. What keeps the refugees there generations after generation? Why does the UN continue to support a system that means it must ship 8,000 tonnes of food into a blistering hot desert each week? And what does the future hold for this extraordinary refugee camp that is already the size of Bristol?
