In keeping with the commitment to eclectic and innovative territory, Unlimited Editions announces the publication of Deborah Schnitzer’s jane dying again, a novel that blends prose, drama, and poetry to reveal how storytelling structures break and reform to render the pluck and peril of lives shredded by an incurable disease.

Jane Duc is a woman wanting release. Her husband, Clever, suffers a deteriorating illness that has worn them both out and stretched Jane beyond her capacity. They retreat to the family cottage, and Jane finds solace in the forest and river. But not enough. Circumstances can’t be rectified; grief can’t be contained. Her children and friends stand by in bewildered vigilance as she withdraws into a world they don’t know and can’t reach.

There is a bit of Jane in all of us. When life seems to give us more than we can bear, we seek places of retreat, and disappear into them. Jane finds such places and invents others we could never have imagined, and in her final act, shows us the edges of endurance. jane dying again challenges traditional storytelling forms and rethinks conventional understandings of care giving, grief, chronic illness, and end-of-life choice.

At the Edge

At the Edge cover image

UE’s first offering is a novel of intrigue, At the Edge, written by sixteen established and emerging writers from across Canada and abroad, including renowned novelists Gail Anderson-Dargatz and Jack Hodgins.

The story line: A benign September morning brings strangers to an edge none could anticipate. A besieged father, an Agatha Christie expert, an incidental thief, enduring lovers, and runaway children (among others), converge on a university quadrangle spoiled by a gaping construction hole. All are absorbed by the complexity of their individual worlds, yet each one manages to skirt the danger—except one. In a most unexpected ending we learn how that came to be and why.

At the Edge is available as a trade paperback from
