'ONE OF THE FIRST POLITICAL CLASSICS OF THE 21st CENTURY'- Observer

'EXTRAORDINARILY POWERFUL, POIGNANT AND AFFECTING. I WAS GREATLY MOVED' Michael Palin

FOREWORD BY CHRISTINA LAMB

Journalist Samar Yazbek was forced into exile by Assad's regime. When the uprising in Syria turned to bloodshed, she was determined to take action and secretly returned several times. The Crossing is her rare, powerful and courageous testament to what she found inside the borders of her homeland.

From the first peaceful protests for democracy to the arrival of ISIS, she bears witness to those struggling to survive, to the humanity that can flower amidst annihilation, and why so many are now desperate to flee.

Powerful and moving…bears comparison with George Orwell’s Homage To Catalonia as a work of literature, Yazbek is a superb narrator…it may be that [she] has written one of the first political classics of the 21st centuryBrave, rebellious and passionate…Yazbek is no ordinary Syrian dissidentAn eloquent, gripping and harrowing account of the country’s decline into barbarism by an incredibly brave SyrianGripping... Does the important job of putting faces to the numbing numbers of Syria’s crisis...Sheds valuable light on day-to-day life inside Syria, something of which we know little…a sobering glimpse of the wreckage that will be discovered when the war is over
