I've been driving past this truck all spring, whenever I take H to preschool. It's a Ford F-600 and my guess would 1977. A good solid Maine farm truck. Salt tends to eat trucks around here but Delphinium looks clean and solid. Living on the end of a Maine peninsula means most of the driving is on back roads. There's been a flock of turkeys up on the Hales Hill Road all spring; H wonders if they are the same birds we used to ride our bikes past on our way to school in Texas last winter.

I've published a book of stories NIGHT DRIVING (1987), and 2 novels: THE LAW OF DREAMS (2006), and THE O'BRIENS, which came out in the US (Pantheon) and Canada (House of Anansi) in 2012.
