About the novel
What makes a family a family? And what do we owe the people in our lives? Adam and Kira Glazer live a Northern California liberal lifestyle, entering middle age with politically correct values, an obsession with gourmet organic food, and no idea what has happened to their punk rock, adventurous youth. Then, a shocking reminder of the past lands on their doorstep. Adam, Kira, and their 13-year-old daughter Polly take on freeways, yoga classes and junk food, face dark truths and blood secrets, and drive -- alone and together -- all the way to The Edge of Maybe.

"An unflinching exploration of 21st century family life, California style, at once funny, complicated, earnest, and passionate, with an ending I cheered. The characters are full of surprises, and Amber is a gem."
-- Alix Kates Shulman, author of To Love What Is and Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen
"Ericka Lutz is a brave, honest, deeply observant writer. She deftly celebrates and lampoons Bay Area culture as she exposes the dark side of a family which, on the surface, seems ideal. The Edge of Maybe is a timely, compulsive read."
-- Gayle Brandeis, author of Delta Girls and My Life with the Lincolns
"At the core of this book are three people trying, in their varying ways, to dig deeper into the blood, bone, and marrow of life."
-- Ira Marlowe, Singer/Songwriter, Yoga Class and Brainy Tunes
