Ostensibly, in The End of a Fence, Muradov is asking profound questions about modern life. “What if we were segregated by compatibility? What if we agreed on everything from haircuts to philosophy? What if we had no sides to take? What would remain in the middle?” But this isn’t fodder for pollsters or social media managers. Muradov is working the fringes, because it’s on the peripheries where the real action is.
