Publisher's Summary

Europe is facing a wave of migration unmatched since the end of World War II - and no one has reported on this crisis in more depth or breadth than the Guardian's migration correspondent, Patrick Kingsley. Throughout 2015 Kingsley travelled to 17 countries along the migrant trail, meeting hundreds of refugees making epic odysseys across deserts, seas and mountains to reach the holy grail of Europe.
This is Kingsley's unparalleled account of who these voyagers are. It's about why they keep coming and how they do it. It's about the smugglers who help them on their way and the coast guards who rescue them at the other end. The volunteers who feed them, the hoteliers who house them, and the border guards trying to keep them out. And the politicians looking the other way.
The New Odyssey is a work of original, bold reporting written with a perfect mix of compassion and authority by the journalist who knows the subject better than any other.

Superb insight

My first review...what an insightful, informative book with personal stories to boot. Floored that Patrick Kingsley is 26 years old. Both frustrating and inspiring.
