Abstract:

Kim Chernin breaks literary boundaries and shatters silences in everything she writes - from her explosive memoir In My Mother's House, hailed by Newsday as "an artistic triumph that brings rich characters to life," to The Obsession, which The New York Times called "eloquently written, passionate ... and consistently absorbing," Now, in Crossing the Border, Chernin examines a near-forgotten part of her past.

More than twenty years ago, Kim Chernin set out on a journey, leaving behind a husband and young daughter. The story of this journey, which took her to a border kibbutz in Israel, becomes a mysterious tale of erotic awakening.

Crossing the Border is a powerful story of sex, seduction, and intrigue. Love at the border is a dangerous affair, and in Crossing the Border love in a war zone becomes violent. The wild and tempestuous Kim Chernin set out on an adventure in 1971; the woman who came back was altered forever.

Rich, multilayered, and as suspenseful as fiction, Crossing the Border is a tale of passion lived to its extreme. As lyrical as the writing of Marguerite Duras and as daring as the work of Jeanette Winterson, Crossing the Border is certain to provoke and captivate.
