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 Tirana to the drag bars of New York, traversing borders and identities in search of refuge. A rising star on the international scene, Pajtim has already won several prizes for his stunning, heart-breaking novels, and was awarded the Helsinki Writer of the Year in 2018.

Pajtim will read and discuss his work with host Mariana Casale.
