The Lindenwood Review: a journal of literary prose

Volume 1, Issue 4 (2014)

Many thanks to James D. Evans, President of Lindenwood University, for his continued support and inspiring leadership. Thanks also to my MFA students who served as editorial assistants on this issue, for their careful work with a tremendous weekly reading load, for finding and fighting for their favorites. I would like to dedicate Issue 4 of The Lindenwood Review to Daniel W. Kemper, my Dean and a faithful supporter of this journal and our MFA program. Dan retires this year as a Professor Emeritus, and he will be missed. The MFA program would not exist as it is today without his support, his love of the arts, and his trust in me. I will be forever grateful to him.
