"Seeking asylum from the wreckage of her life, Yvette Grimm arrives in Australia on a holiday visa. She applies for permanent residency with no hope of success. Resisting advice that she marry to stay in the country, Yvette invests her hopes in a palm-reader s prophecy that she will meet the father of her children before she s thirty.

She s twenty-nine.

Set in the excoriating heat of an endless Perth summer, against the backdrop of asylum seekers locked in detention, Asylum is a gripping tale of loss and belonging that is dark, absurd and hilarious by turns."

Industry Reviews

Asylum by Isobel Blackthorn is a work of women's fiction. Although set in Australia, it's a book that's sure to speak to women everywhere. Asylum is a solid story that deals with one woman's journey to adulthood while underscoring the social and political injustices faced by those who don't hold Australian citizenship. Compelling and utterly relatable. Well worth the read - Reader's Favorite
