Crossing Borders by Will Carr
Travel back in time to 1953, find yourself in Greenwich Village, join a Going Away party for sexually uncertain Carr; meet the Andrea Doria early the next AM as Carr hugs his sister goodbye: hear the ships horn as the ill fated ship sails the Atlantic, travel to Paris, there witness Carr's introduction to the pre ordered Renault which will be his 24/7 home as he starts his journey of literally Crossing Borders . With only his passport as`security', Carr crosses from one country into another, listen to the threats of guards, "see" the fascinating richness of sites like generous Istanbul, eventually cross the multiple borders encircling the Mediterranean. Knowing what few others did i.e., that young Carr is Jewish, feel your own tensions while crossing over Arab borders. Enjoy the unexpected, the goodness of most people yet also feel fear, the urge to flee to safely, the legitimate wonder about living into another day. "Crossing Borders", actually, a double entendre, also takes the reader behind private doors as the author attempts to discover his true sexual orientation. Finally fast forward to the present, find Carr with his four legged, best friend ever, AJ, who coaches his master in recognizing the actual importance of life's own journey, the small, important things that are trampled upon while too young to recognize. AJ never tires of his master's love nor of listening to the tales of the past. A Must read about a uncertain youth searching for his future, about a man who defines those answers some fifty years late after he had crossed all of the borders. Sally Veauta
