- Brooklin, Maine, United States
- We own a 1975 GMC Sierra Grande 15 in Maine and an '86 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe 10 in West Texas. Also a pair of '97 Volvo 850 wagons. Average age in the fleet is 26 years--we're recycling. I've published 2 novels: THE LAW OF DREAMS (2006), and THE O'BRIENS (2012), and 2 collections of stories NIGHT DRIVING (1987), and TRAVELLING LIGHT (2013). Novel # 3, KARIN, will be out from Pantheon (US) and House of Anansi (Canada) in March 2016. More of my book stuff at www.peterbehrens.org I was a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study for 2012-13. I've been teaching at Colorado College, Wichita State, and in the MFA program at Queens University of Charlotte. In 2015-16 I'll be a Fellow at Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. SUBSCRIBE TO THE AUTOLITERATE DAILY EMAIL by hitting the button to the right. It's free.

Not many boats in the harbor yet. Cold and rough on the gear for lobstering. Many lobstermen don't set out gear until June.
The Marfa-to-Maine truck.
Bought new at Casner Motors, Marfa 1975. Maybe that's where it acquired the Chevrolet tailgate, even though it's a GMC Sierra Grande 15.

from Colin Washburn:
"Man, I love these Mercs. Probably because my buddy Travis Hart had one in high school. His looked nothing like this one. The candy-apple red beauty was in a gas station in Ely, Nevada. It had Washington plates. A long road trip in a low-rider."--CRW
