Living in a hostel is a life-changing experience that allows you to develop as a person. Your ability to work together will be substantially enhanced. You'll have no qualms about sharing your food, beverages, tales, or laughing. You'll notice that ties will form quickly and that the things you share with other travellers will exceed your expectations. You will meet people from all regions, countries, cultures, and lifestyles as a result of the constant hostel guest turnover, and best of all... each has their own bag of adventures and stories to share with you. You'll fall into a routine in which the day of the week becomes inconsequential, and you'll even forget to check the time on the clock. “Hostelers” consists of several co-authors from all over the globe who have dedicated their inked verses as a poem, quote, micro tale or a short story which revolves around the theme- “Life in Hostel”. We are hoping for the great success of this book, a free anthology launched by Writer’s Abode Publication in which none of the co-Authors are charged a single penny throughout the publishing process.

This book is not about the political history of Apartheid South Africa; it is about an extraordinary South African woman's life. It depicts where she was born, and chronicles her courageous journey into exile to Lesotho, Zambia, Zaire, and Britain, culminating with a diplomatic assignment in the United States of America. This is where the politics of the day intersects with personal lives, making us all more deeply appreciative of how profoundly the 'personal is political'.

Post-Celtic Tiger Ireland and Contemporary Women’s Writing: Feminist Interventions and Imaginings analyzes and explores women’s writing of the post-Tiger period and reflects on the social, cultural, and economic conditions of this writing’s production. The Post-Celtic Tiger period (2008-) in Ireland marks an important moment in the history of women’s writing. It is a time of increased visibility and publication, dynamic feminist activism and collective projects, as well as a significant garnering of public recognition to a degree that has never been seen before. The collection is framed by interviews with Claire Kilroy and Melatu Okorie-two leading figures in the field-and closes with Okorie’s landmark short story on Direct Provision, "This Hostel Life." The book features the work of leading scholars in the field of contemporary literature, with essays on Anu Productions, Emma Donoghue, Grace Dyas, Anne Enright, Rita Ann Higgins, Marian Keyes, Claire Kilroy, Eimear McBride, Rosaleen McDonagh, Belinda McKeon, Melatu Okorie, Louise O’Neill, and Waking The Feminists. Reflecting on all the successes and achievements of women’s writing in the contemporary period, this book also considers marginalization and exclusions in the field, especially considering the politics of race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, and ability. The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory.
