A POWERFUL COMING OF AGE TALE


  • "She’s out on a pier, deep in the ocean. A tidal wave is coming. Standing at the edge of the earth where the sand is swallowed up by the salty sea, I call for her…"
  • So begins a young man’s journey west in search of his lost love. Haunted by nightmares of her memory, our nameless hero leaves home looking to solve a mystery. In the end, he discovers much more than he set out to find.
  • Written in the same tradition as On the Road and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Michael Doane’s The Crossing explores what it means to exist in 21st century America.
