“No one is sure what he will find by pick­ing at the edges.  But it is at the edges where I have found a life. Small truths some­times grow into a larger one, and I would like to be­lieve the columns in this col­lec­tion are keep­ers of lit­tle truths.”

Edges, as ecol­o­gists know, are places rich in bi­o­log­i­cal ac­tiv­ity; one of my fa­vorite po­ets, a psy­chol­o­gist by train­ing, as­serts that, “Truth ap­pears only at the bor­ders,” and once, seated with a group around a camp­fire in a wilder­ness area in Ari­zona, I watched a coy­ote skirt our cir­cle, trot­ting the perime­ter where the flick­er­ing light of our camp­fire met the deep blue shad­ows.  In this man­ner, Mr. Lefeb­vre is like a lit­er­ate coy­ote, whose beat is the place where two zones con­verge.  (From a review of Perimeter Check II by Julia Shipley)
