Crossing California

By Adam Langer

Spanning the days of the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Langer creates a sphere encompassing wonder, struggle and creativity in the Jewish enclave of West Rogers Park, Chicago.

With a cast of characters who walk right across the page and into your mind (and who would benefit from an on-screen treatment), Crossing California provides a fascinating look at an international crisis as seen through a colorful chorus undergoing their own, incomparable turmoil as they try to come to terms with their identity in a precarious world.

Great for:

  • Anyone who grew up during the hostage crisis
  • Readers who love quirky characters
  • A sociological study of West Rogers Park in Chicago
