Persephone's Library and Other Short Stories by Kathryn Anthony
Approx. 39,120 words.
Published on October 7, 2011.
A collection of five stories centered around themes of social dis-integration. They are stories in which things fall apart, and the centre cannot hold. The world is changed, and what remains of civilization is left ragged and flailing–the result of forces the protagonists find inexplicable, even as they struggle to find meaning and rebuild their lives.
