Editors Note Simone, a popular but troubled high school teacher, is very adept at hiding her emotional turmoil, until it lands her in an inner-city outpatient psychiatric hospital where hers is the only white face. She inadvertently alienates Satch, a fullback of a woman who relentlessly taunts her for her denial and cheerful demeanor. In the weeks that follow, Simone and Satch are thrown together both inside and outside the hospital. Their surprising and often tumultuous friendship becomes essential to both women's quests to uncover the hidden truths of their pasts that propel them toward self-destruction. Alternately heart-wrenching and funny, Edgewise is a timely story of love, abuse, and the hope of redemption.Wally Lamb says, ?Edgewise is a harrowing story of injury and feeling, despair and hope. Vivid and unflinching in the telling, Stites' novel is courageous, heartfelt and unforgettable.?
