This not-for-profit book was compiled and edited by Elena Remigi (an Italian interpreter and translator resident in the UK for fifteen years), Véronique Martin (a French writer resident in the UK for thirty years) and Tim Sykes (a British editor). The testimonies written by EU citizens in the UK were collected in the early months of 2017 and are published with their full consent. They describe in moving details the trauma caused by the uncertainty their authors have been experiencing since the Brexit referendum in June 2016.
This book comes with a thought-provoking and touching foreword by George Szirtes, a well-known Hungarian-born British poet. It aims to give a voice to a sample of the three million who are so often treated in the British political discourse and tabloid press as a depersonalised mass of ‘migrants’. In contrast, this anthology reveals them as citizens and as individuals, whose lives have been interrupted and plunged into a painful limbo by political events in which they have had no say.

The second not-for-profit book of the In Limbo duology was compiled and edited by Elena Remigi and a team of co-editors both from the EU27 citizens’ group
“In Limbo – Our Brexit testimonies” and the UK citizens in the EU group
“Brexpats – Hear Our Voice” headed by Debbie Williams.
The introduction is written by Professor A.C. Grayling. This second volume, In Limbo Too, continues where In Limbo had left off and focuses on the British in the EU.
It represents further proof of the deep solidarity between the EU in UK and UK in EU citizens – a united European family, their distress and limbo, mirror images of one another across the Channel.

We really hope that these In Limbo books will help alert the British and EU politicians to the plight of this neglected group of citizens who have the most to lose from Brexit and encourage a prompt, effective and comprehensive resolution of the pressing question of the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU.
At this crucial time in the negotiations, we need more than ever the help of the EU to secure and ring fence our rights.
We thank you in anticipation for reading our books and supporting our cause.
