“This vibrant, eclectic, altogether surprising collection reminds me of all the reasons I love short stories.”

JENNIFER HAIGH, author of Mercy Street 

Belonging: Short Stories from Pangyrus, edited by Virginia Pye and Anne Bernays, is a poignant collection exploring what we sacrifice when we strive to belong.

A woman gets thin to make her family notice her. A teenage girl shoplifts with a friend for love and affirmation. Whether it's an unflinching look at a soldier's return to a land seared in his memory or a tale of a woman wandering the nighttime streets she's forgotten, the tender and funny stories of Belonging explore our own hope of ever finding the connections we so desperately want.
