Editorial Reviews

Review

Edges is an elegantly written, quite moving novel that has a lot to say about love, identity, history and the meaning of nationality. The book is worth reading alone for its superb language, but it is gripping and unforgettable as well in its story telling and evocation of place and emotions. It is a wonderful novel by an author with a quite accomplished voice and style, one well deserving a wide and receptive audience.”
– Oscar Hijuelos, author of the Pulitzer-prize winning novel, The Mambo King Sings Songs Of Love

Edges is a dark and penetrating look at pre-1967 Israel and Palestine through the eyes of a 14 year old…well-written, powerful in both imagery and subject matter.”
Jewish Book World

“The author's vivid sense of landscape, her gift for identifying with both mother and daughter, Arab and Jew, gives the novel a unique sense of balance and brings the reader, regardless of political conviction into sympathy with this portrait of a vanished Jerusalem.”
– Mark Mirsky, Fiction

“Edges is an elegant and moving novel. Leora Skolkin-Smith has that rare gift of the writer who can convey the sensibility – the essence of a place and its people – with precision and clarity. A provocative debut.”
– Katharine Weber, author of Triangle, The Little Women, and The Music Lesson

“Skolkin's brilliant debut novel is a hypnotic meditation on the ever-changing boundaries of love and need. A coming-of-age story of the bond between a young American and her powerful mother, etched in a wartime Mideast as shifting and dangerous and mysterious as the Israeli desert.”
– Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Is It Tomorrow

Edges is a novel told with restraint and poetic precision...memorable (for the) sense of place that Ms. Skolkin-Smith has achieved – the sunny and scary Jerusalem and countryside – and the hope, love, hate and fatalism of the groups, Palestinian and Israeli, living amongst and apart from each other...”
– Robert Whitcomb, The Providence Journal

From the Publisher

Edges was awarded a stipend from the PEN/Faulkner Foundation's National Schools Program, was a Bloomsbury Review "Favorite Book of the Last 25 Years," and a selection of both the National Women's Studies Association Conference and the Jewish Book Council. The book has also been optioned for a feature film to be shot on location in Jerusalem and will be available in an audio edition, narrated by stage and screen actress Tovah Feldshuh, next month.
