Belonging: Home Away from Home free pdf The long-awaited new book from the acclaimed short story writer, author of The Elizabeth Stories and You Never Know. Belonging is pure pleasure to read -- entertaining, beautifully written, laced with gentle humour and perceptive insights. Shifting from memoir to fiction, it focuses on the commonplace experiences underlying our lives that are the true basis for storytelling. At the book s core is Isabel Huggan s old house in rural France, from where she contemplates the real meaning of home, and the mysterious manner in which memory gives substance to ordinary things around us.
