Sue Goyette's outskirts is a travel de strength. Its originality lies in Goyette's refusal of depression, her conviction that the connections between humans, their dialog, interest, empathy and awe, may help us see a fashion ahead. Her goal is to discover power in human love, how to stroll the darkness instead of conceal from it. This ebook will identify you, and frighten you; make you chuckle, and arm you for what's to come.
