Much has been written about migration from a historic, economic and social perspective, but little has been written about it from a psychiatric or psychoanalytic point of view. Through the work of Frantz Fanon, BJF Laubscher and Wulf Sachs (psychoanalyst), Busetto explores philosophical and ethical problems, such as the relationship between the individual and society, culture and mental illness and the fraught question of race and difference.

Penelope Busetto is a South African writer known for her novel The Story of Anna P, as Told by Herself.
