Richard Horton: Suppose (Fiction)
Southern Legitimacy Statement: I was born and grew up in Rural Texarkana, TX. There were cows, pigs, hound dogs, an old swimmin’ hole and a little church in the wildwoods. There was a shabby “mansion” in town; at least it seemed like one to us. Aunts gossiped and told family stories on the front porch. We moved to Dallas where I spent a suburban adolescence in the time of Kennedy. After the Navy I went to UT Austin, and married a South Texas girl and lived in a trailer park, then got a job in MA and moved where I now live. Most of my flash fiction stories in my first chapbook, Sticks & Bones, are set in Texarkana and Dallas.
