Asher is a changeling: not quite human enough for his Inalan family. He was banished while still a child, forced to eke out a life on his own in a sprawling and callous city. Asher survives, even flourishes, for twenty-five years, and then his past comes knocking at the door. His Inalan brother tracks him down and begs him to come home one last time to comfort their mother, the woman who permitted Asher to be banished in the first place.
“The Other Side Of Town” explores what it means to be a family, the pull of shared blood, and the obligations we ultimately have to ourselves.
