Crossing

Pajtim Statovci

£14.99

Released 2nd May 2019

Amid the conflict and desolation of post-Communist Albania, teenage boys Agim and Bujar share restless dreams of escape. After Bujar’s father dies and Agim’s family discover him dressed in his mother’s clothes, the pair flee to the Albanian capital of Tirana, hungry for a chance to shape their own lives.

From Tirana to Rome, from Madrid to New York, Crossing charts the refugee’s struggle for another identity and another story in a world that seems to offer only dead ends. This is a shape-shifter of a novel, by turns playful and heartbreaking, and its characters’ efforts to cross boundaries of nationality, gender and sexuality make for an urgent address to our times.
