Cycling to Asylum Su Sokol
In a near-future New York subject to an increasingly frightening and repressive government, Laek, a non-conformist history teacher, and Janie, an activist lawyer, struggle to keep themselves and their loved ones safe while standing up for what they believe. After Laek is badly injured in a brutal confrontation with the police, they are forced to flee across the border by bicycle with their two young children. In a Montréal that the future has also transformed, the family faces new challenges: convincing the authorities to grant them refugee status and integrating into Québec society. Will they find asylum in their new home or will threats from across the border continue to put their safety at risk? Longlisted for the Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic.
