…bizarre, funny and incredibly moving…Torrens neatly crafts a narrative that unifies these three diverse groups of people…

Ed MacDonaldAuthor, Atomic Storybook

In Edge of East, Jackie Torrens shines a compassionate light on fringe dwellers and finds, at every turn, someone wholly unexpected. Fresh, funny and cool. Edge of East should be a series.
