Edie is in limbo.

“I had recently heard about the idea of a liminal zone and I liked it, probably too much,” writes Beth Lisick, in the voice of the title character in her debut novel, “Edie on the Green Screen.” “I had spent the last twenty-five years thinking that I was there, that I had arrived at my destination and was staying put, but maybe that wasn’t the case.”

When people find themselves in between – in the midst of transition from one mental or circumstantial state to the next – the effect can be disorienting. It can also lead to revelation.

Places can be in between, too. All of San Francisco, of course, has been teetering on a virtual threshold for years now. These two new novels, in very different ways, both have smart, funny and often affecting things to say about our rapidly changing world.
