The Debut Novel From Michael Doane

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.

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.


What Readers Are Saying

"I'm almost finished with The Crossing and I can safely say now it'll be among the best things I've read this year." – Ricardo Fayet, Reedsy

"I am really enjoying The Crossing. I am reminded of a Peter Gabriel song that says 'it's only in uncertainty we are naked and alive.' The bike causes both the loss of love and the finding of new love including self love. It's existential and essential." – Robin Feldman, NAGC

"The dialogue between characters especially rings true and some of the main character's inner thoughts really resonate with me. I haven't decided if this is a story about one young man or a commentary on society, but I'm enjoying the ride." – Eric Walther, Photographer and Illustrator
