The Wild Detectives says
The Edge Becomes The Center captures the stories of the many kinds of people—brokers, buyers, sellers, renters, landlords, artists, contractors, politicians and everyone in between—who are being shaped by—and are shaping—the new New York City. In this extraordinary oral history, DW Gibson takes gentrification out of the op-ed columns and the textbooks and brings it to life. Gibson explains— in the voices of the people living through it—what urban change really looks and feels like.
In the plainspoken, casually authoritative tradition of Jane Jacobs and Studs Terkel, The Edge Becomes The Center is an inviting and essential portrait of the way we live now.

DW Gibson is the author of Not Working: People Talk About Losing a Job and Finding Their Way in Today’s Changing Economy (Penguin, 2012). His work has appeared in several publications including Harper’s, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Village Voice, and The Caravan. He has been a contributor to NPR’s All Things Considered and worked on documentaries for the A&E Television Network and MSNBC. Hid credits include The Hate Network and Inside Alcoholics Anonymous. His directorial debut, Pants Down, premiered at Anthology Film Archives in New York. DW Gibson serves as director of Writers Omi at Ledig House in Ghent, New York, and he co-founded Sangam House, a writers’ residency in India, along with Arshia Sattar.

DW Gibson will be joined in conversation with D Magazine's Peter Simek.
