In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Landerlunden
  • Nance Van Winckel (bio)

Anywhere I go in America, my mother’s been there too, or so she says. Lived there. Vacationed there. Even a city I make up: Landerlunden. Oh yes, it was full of lilacs. You girls rode your bikes around a park there. And on she goes until slowly it slides into my view too. Was there a forest encircling it? Yes, and those foxes and their tracks we followed out from town, us carrying those awful pistols, and what a racket in the trees when the hounds flushed the pretty red one. Honey, I want you to have the stole we made from him. Remember it? His mouth is a little clip that opens and closes like this: {here her hand becomes a snout, biting}. [End Page 29]
