Lost and disconnected, a man spends the day shadowing his overbearing companion, waiting for enlightenment and resolve; seeking to understand a bothersome puzzle -- his life.

About the Author
I have been writing since I was twelve. Because I received almost no encouragement to pursue writing when I was young, I gave up the idea and worked in the airline industry (my second true love) where I have been for almost 25 years. I continued to write on the side, but didn't return to a more serious writing until 2010. The Peace of Pi was born from a dream - literally. It is a story that played in my sleep, much as a film, and it was something that I could not ignore.

Reviewed by Mary C. Blowers for Readers' Favorite The Peace of Pi by Michael Bussa is very short, though intriguing. The little man who narrates is described as a wry little man. He must be very small in stature, and he forever frets over what he has said or done to offend his wife. He follows her around from day to day and she does not speak to him. She does not accept the rose he offers from the garden. It's a mystery even to the reader. The story develops as he follows her into various shops and is not noticed by the shopkeepers either. She appears to be annoyed constantly and she barks orders at the cabbie who is driving a horse and carriage, as the story apparently takes place in a time before automobiles. Michael Bussa keeps the reader wondering as the story continues. The reader may suspect the ending, but it is certain only once you get there what has been going on. The man and his wife are both comforted at the end, hence the title makes sense, The Peace of Pi. I also enjoyed a bit of rhyming in the book; it's as if the man speaks in rhymes. That is just one of his quirks that helps to round him out as a character. It is easy to visualize him as a little man in a three-piece suit wearing spectacles and with thinning hair neatly combed back. I would like to see the book expanded into a longer piece, but it works well as a short story.
