Inhaltsangabe zu „Edgewise“ von Jan Stites

“courageous, heartfelt and unforgettable” - Wally Lamb “the characters become so alive, reading this book is like watching a movie.” - J. Cameron, playwright, performer and book reviewer Simone is a popular, but troubled white middle class teacher who cuts herself. She flees from the uneducated, severely depressed patients in her inner-city treatment program, but is forced to return because "Oakhell" is the only facility she can afford. There, she meets Satch, a working-class black woman who scoffs at Simone's denial and cheerful demeanor. In the weeks that follow, Simone and Satch are thrown together both inside and outside of the hospital. Their tumultuous friendship becomes crucial to both women's quests to uncover the truths that propel them toward self-destruction. Alternately heart-wrenching and funny, Edgewise is a timely story of love, abuse and the hope of redemption. “a story of humanity and how strength can come from many sources, including those we supposedly hate” Midwest Book Review “lots of humor that pops in at unexpected moments” – Mike Karpa, book reviewer “not sure literature can get any better” – Mary Patrick Kavanaugh, author & reviewer
