Danny Ramadan & Pajtim Statovci: The Resilience of Queer Love

Can relationships last against the backdrop of war? Danny Ramadan’s The Foghorn Echoes shows us the forbidden love of two boys in war-torn Syria. Pajtim Statovci’s Bolla takes us to 90s Kosovo, where a newly married Arsim falls in love with a Serbian man. Today, they discuss their tender and powerful books with Andrew McMillan and ask how we can truly discover ourselves when around us there is nothing but destruction.
