Winesburg, Indiana: Emmalene's Backery and Bait Shop


Sherrie Flick


Catman's truck eases past the gleaming shop window, the boat trailing behind like a ghost in the cautious, blue night. A blip and it’s gone. Like a heart monitor. Like a nocturnal creature out on the chase. My imagination, maybe, but this early in the morning anything can happen.
