“But as they go through couples mediation, dissecting their shared history in sessions surrounded by lawyers and paperwork, are they close to finding something worth saving? Or will they reaffirm their decision to end it for good?
Fewery’s first two books, Our life in a day and The way back, were published by Orion. He is an author, journalist and editor who has written for the The telegraph of the day, Five dials and Wiredand works for a London-based marketing and creative agency.
“I am thrilled to be working with Cari and the Legend team on The edge“said Fewery. “Cari’s passion for the book shines through, and I couldn’t have hoped for a better home for it. We’re excited for readers to find out about Dan and Anya’s complicated wedding next spring.
Rosen commented, “I have been a long time fan of Jamie’s writing and am delighted to have acquired this beautifully observed novel. The edge uncovers the anatomy of a marriage and its denouement and is ironic and touching in equal measure.
