A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: THE GUARDIAN • LIBRARY JOURNAL

Steeped in a rich heritage of bewitching Albanian myth and legend, Crossing is a deeply timely and deeply necessary novel about war, exile, and identity in all its complex permutations.

After the death of his father, a young boy named Bujar grows up in the ruins of Communist Albania and of his own family. Only his fearless best friend, Agim—who is facing realizations about his gender and sexuality—gives him hope for the future. Together the two decide to leave everything behind and try their luck in Italy. But the struggle to feel at home—in a foreign country and even in one’s own body—will have corrosive effects, spurring a dangerous search for new identities.

Award-winning author Pajtim Statovci has crafted a stunning, incandescent new novel about love, betrayal, heartbreak, and the human need to be seen.
