About the book:
“Edge of Here” is a short-story collection centring black women and their navigation of various dilemmas in a dystopian universe. Imagine a world with gadgets that allow you to experience other people’s emotions, use your DNA to view the life of a distant relative, be ranked on your healthy habits, or experience an alternative love life with a stranger. What would be the consequences of the human experience being so... commodified? What would we stand to gain... or lose?
