Named one of the Most Anticipated Books of the Year by Vogue, Buzzfeed, Hello Giggles, and more. A fiercely empathetic group portrait of the marginalized and outcast in moments of crisis, from one of the most galvanizing voices in American fiction. Lidia Yuknavitch is a writer of rare insight into the jagged boundaries between pain and survival. Her characters are scarred by the unchecked hungers of others and themselves, yet determined to find salvation within lives that can feel beyond their control. In novels such as The Small Backs of Children and The Book of Joan, she has captivated readers with stories of visceral power. Now, in Verge, she offers a shard-sharp mosaic portrait of human resilience on the margins. The landscape of Verge is peopled with characters who are innocent and imperfect, wise and endangered: an eight-year-old black-market medical courier, a restless lover haunted by memories of his mother, a teenage girl gazing out her attic window at a nearby prison, all of them wounded but grasping toward transcendence. Clear-eyed yet inspiring, Verge challenges us with moments of uncomfortable truth, even as it urges us to place our faith not in the flimsy guardrails of society but in the memories held--and told--by our own individual bodies.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Lidia YuknavitchPublisher: Riverhead BooksPublished: 02/04/2020ISBN: 9780525534877Pages: 208Weight: 0.57lbsSize: 8.10h x 5.00w x 0.90dReview Citations: Library Journal 02/01/2020 pg. 48Kirkus Reviews 11/15/2019Publishers Weekly 12/09/2019Booklist 01/01/2020 pg. 40Shelf Awareness 02/11/2020
