An odd, turn-of-the-century tale of disconnection follows a quiet little man who wanders about the day in the shadows of an overbearing wife. Willing to do anything to find the love they once shared, he trails her patiently, almost invisibly, to an unexpected ending. "The Peace of Pi" is written with a curious blend of rhythm and rhyme, as a long-form poetic short story.

As the author of the story, I screen numerous voices. Admittedly, I held unreasonable standards since the story is unlike any other -- there doesn't seem to be a particular category. It is allegorical, poetic, mysterious, and dramatic -- posing the daunting task of finding just the right voice.

Wendy Wolfson was a perfect choice. Her voice is was meant to tell stories. It is soothingly angelic and the missing element to complete my work. I will look to Wendy for future projects. I invite you to listen, and to enjoy as much as I do!

Sesame, an old woman in frail health, is trapped in the attic with no explanation. A woman and her two small girls live on the first floor, none of whom pay the old woman any mind. Though she tries calling out, banging on walls, and stomping on the floor, her cries for help go ignored. Sesame spends her days writing letters about the strange things that happened to her sister, Eula, who left home decades ago. It becomes certain to everyone living in the house that there is a ghostly presence, firmly rooted among them that is disturbing the peace and creating fears beyond reason.

As the author of the story, I must say that I am more than happy with the narration by Deryn Oliver. Her work is beyond what I had hoped for. She brought the characters to life better than I imagined them when writing the story. Many thanks to Deryn.
