Edges is the story of a young girl's dramatic coming-of-age in 1960s Israel and Palestine. A National Jewish Book Council Selection, a National Women's Studies Association Selection, and the recipient of a Pen / Faulkner Foundation stipend for the author, Edges was originally published by Glad Day Books, Grace Paley, editor, and was hailed as a "stunning and provocative debut...that has a lot to say about love, identity, history, and the meaning of nationality".

Critic reviews

"Perhaps above all, the novel, told with restraint and poetic precision, is about how we shoulder on (and wing it) under the weight of history, family and public." (Providence Journal)
"Edges is an elegantly written, quite moving novel....The book is worth reading alone for its superb language, but it is gripping and unforgettable as well in its storytelling and evocation of place and emotions." (Oscar Hijuelos, author of The Mambo Kings Sing Songs of Love)

Confused thoughts of a 14 year old, told through the wiser (older) author. It falls short of the mark in many ways, from the shallowness of the characters (very one dimensional), to the cheap imagery which is meant to be sensual and comes out looking cheap. The worst shortcoming: It leaves you wondering what motivated any and all her characters to behave the way they did!
