Is it possible to enjoy a book with such a difficult premise? We can read about murder. We can read about rape. But, if you are like me, pedophilia has been beyond where I want to go. But, I did. And, I'm grateful. "Edinburgh", by Alexander Chee, is about more than a despicable act. It is about the transformation of a man. No child should have to go through what Fee goes through in this story. But, children do. And, this novel puts a face on it and gives us hope and beauty. It teaches us what we already know - that a person can be more than a victim.
