About the Author

Gazmend Kapllani, the author of three books, teaches creative writing and European history at Emerson College and was previously a fellow at Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute and a writer-in-residence at Wellesley College. He has held talks at numerous colleges and universities including the University of Michigan, Columbia University, Brown University, Harvard University, Dartmouth College, Wellesley College, and Bennington College. Born in 1967 in Albania, he crossed the mountainous border into Greece illegally, on foot, in 1991. In Greece he worked as a builder, a cook, and a kiosk attendant while earning a doctorate at Athens University. For more than ten years he was a columnist for the leading Greek daily Ta Nea. A Short Border Handbook, written in Greek, was a bestseller in Greece and translated into several languages. In 2017 it received the prestigious Italy's Letterature dal Fronte (Literature from the Borders) Prize of Cassino, Italy, dedicated to Greek literature for the year. Kapllani's other books include the novels My Name is Europe (2010, Greece; 2013, France) and The Last Page (2012, Greece; 2015, France). He is currently working on a novel in Albanian and a short story collection in English.

Reviews

"Kapllani treats the absurdities of nationalism in the Balkans - and everywhere - with mischief, wit and insight" -- Boyd Tonkin, Independent (UK)"A telling reminder of how the borders that many of us are lucky enough to regard as bureaucratic inconvenience often form unimpeachable barriers and of how the way they are policed can be ruthless and absurd." -- Laurence Mackin, Irish Times
