This copy of "Dark at the Crossing" has been SIGNED by Elliot Ackerman on the title page (he has also crossed-out his printed name) from his appearance at the National Book Award Readings on November 14, 2017! A Finalist for the 2017 National Book Award for Fiction. A timely new novel of stunning humanity and tension: a love story set on the Turkish border with Syria. Elliot Ackerman, author of the critically acclaimed novel "Green on Blue," is based out of Istanbul, where he has covered the Syrian Civil War since 2013. Told with compassion and a deft hand, "Dark at the Crossing" is an exploration of loss, of second chances and of why we choose to believe - a trenchantly observed novel of raw urgency and power.
