Critically acclaimed NZ author, Jenny Robin Jones has written an absorbing and at times moving account of belonging throughout the ages.

Her book, Not For Ourselves Alone: Belonging in an Age of Loneliness is a creative non-fiction work.

It traverses the development of individuality through historical and sociological lenses from medieval times to the present day.

Jones’ research sits alongside personal reflections of her own life and those of her friends and family who have all experienced belonging, isolation, loneliness in different ways and at different times.
