內容簡介

相信這是本世紀的一部經典史詩。──Observer

記者Samar Yazbek是在阿薩德政權當道時被迫流亡國外。她偷偷冒著生命危險,幾次從土耳其邊境圍牆的一個洞,潛回她的祖國,下定決心要見證她同胞的痛苦,見證了那些掙扎求生存,拼命逃離的悲慘故事。

在書中,她寫下一個個讓人難以置信,震驚不已的真實,當今敘利亞最寫實、殘酷的一面。從第一個的民主示威活動,到ISIS的到來,她提供鏡頭下活生生的畫面,士兵、兒童和普通人,一張張只是想活下去的快照。太多故事是艱難地讓人難以承受:在狙擊下如何正常生活?孩子們如何面對屍體?

非常真實的作品,文字剛中帶柔,讀來隱隱作痛,是呈現敘利亞當代史的重要的歷史文獻和文學作品。

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

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

Samar Yazbek was well known in her native Syria as a writer and a journalist but, in 2011, she fell foul of the Assad regime and was forced to flee.

Since then, determined to bear witness to the suffering of her people, she bravely revisited her homeland by squeezing through a hole in the fence on the Turkish border. In The Crossing, she testifies to the appalling reality that is Syria today. From the first innocent demonstrations for democracy, through the beginnings of the Free Syrian Army, to the arrival of ISIS, she offers remarkable snapshots of soldiers, children, ordinary men and women simply trying to stay alive...Some of these stories are of hardship and brutality that is hard to bear, but she also gives testimony to touches of humanity along the way: how people live under the gaze of a sniper...how principled young men try to resist orders from their military superiors...how children cope in the bunkers...

Yazbek's portraits of life in Syria are very real, her prose is luminous. The Crossing is undoubtedly both an important historical document and a work of literature.
