Manchester Literature Festival: Pajtim Statovci
- Tue 15 Oct 2019
- 7:00 pm
Finnish-Kosovan author Pajtim Statovci discusses his critically acclaimed novels My Cat Yugoslavia and Crossing, challenging our preconceptions about gender, sexuality and migration.
Crossing chronicles the desperate journey of two young men fleeing Albania – from the bazaars of Albania to the drag bars of New York, traversing borders and identities in search of refuge. A rising international star, Pajtim has won several prizes for his stunning, heart-breaking novels, and was awarded the Helsinki Writer of the Year in 2018.
This event will be hosted by Mariana Casale.
