In 2016, Tim contributed a short story to a prestigious collection of writing on the refugee crisis called A Country of Refuge.
Compiled and edited by human rights activist and writer Lucy Popescu, this powerful collection of short fiction, memoir, poetry, and essays explores what it really means to be a refugee: to flee from conflict, poverty, and terror; to have to leave your home and family behind; and to undertake a perilous journey, only to arrive on less than welcoming shores.
These writings are a testament to the strength of the human spirit. The book articulates simple truths about migration that will challenge the way we think about and act towards the dispossessed and those forced to seek a safe place to call home.
Contributors include Sebastian Barry, Elaine Feinstein, Hanif Kureishi, A. L. Kennedy, Amanda Craig, Noo Saro-Wiwa, William Boyd, Rose Tremain, Marina Lewycka, and more.
