Wendell Sanger burns for the touch of young skin and the feel of young girls. He stalks his prey with the methodical organization that he uses in his business. He feels neither shame nor remorse, and he feels no satisfaction except for that brief moment when he is gorging himself on his victim. Ernest Caldwell is the police chief of Mossberg, Arkansas. His only companions are his bottle of Jack Daniels and his deputy. The townspeople see him as a lecherous boor of a man with no morals or ability, but he does work cheap and there is little crime in Mossberg. Wendell walks so close to the edge of sanity that he passes unnoticed. Ernest walks so close to the edge of corruption that he has no credibility. The murder of Kelly Settle will change both menas lives forever as one manas obsession becomes the other manas redemption.
At its rhythmic, beating heart, Close to the Edge asks whether hip hop can change the world. Hip hop -- rapping, beat-making, b-boying, deejaying, graffiti -- captured the imagination of the teenage Sujatha Fernandes in the 1980s, inspiring her and politicizing her along the way. Years later, armed with mc-ing skills and an urge to immerse herself in global hip hop, she embarks on a journey into street culture around the world. From the south side of Chicago to the barrios of Caracas and Havana and the sprawling periphery of Sydney, she grapples with questions of global voices and local critiques, and the rage that underlies both. An engrossing read and an exhilarating travelogue, this punchy book also asks hard questions about dispossession, racism, poverty and the quest for change through a microphone. -- Back cover.

Too Close to the Edge- A SHORT STORY- Artist Penelope had been looking forward to going with her husband, sister and brother-in-law to see the Grand Canyon…even though she was terrified of heights and, when she got there, couldn’t bear to get too close to the edge. She watched people balancing on one foot, acting foolish, taking photos, oblivious of the death waiting below them at their feet. Their careless antics made her dizzy, took her breath away. Scared her. Especially when the woman beside her relates the story of a small child that fell into the Canyon to her death the day before. Many people died that way. Over the edge. Many also died down inside the Canyon. Hikers. Lost people. People on the river going through the rapids. Then she sees a young girl go over the edge and no one will believe her. For there was no child that had died–that day anyway. Was she seeing things that weren’t there…or was there another explanation?
