My Share of the Body, Devon Capizzi's debut story collection, explores loss and the cost of coming of age. A young boy learns the pangs and trials of first crushes, baseball, and adolescent heartbreak. Childhood best friends embark on a pilgrimage to Pennsylvania caverns, searching for redemption. A young woman develops an obsession with her father's urn in the wake of his untimely death, carting the vessel from place to place: the grocery store, the movie theatre, the river.

These stories grapple with grief and the constraints of time. They explore the ways our expectations-of ourselves, of the people we love-often live in tension with our lived experiences, and follow characters in the throes of change, always searching for what's been lost, for what's just out of reach, for newfound ways of carrying their pain.
