Between the Lines
Even as you read this, U.S. 1 Summer Fiction editors
are weighing the submissions for the annual issue to be published
July 24. Reading is what they are actually doing, but weighing is
not such a bad word: More than 90 of you submitted works, including
about 50 who had never submitted before. Over the Fourth of July weekend
our editors carted the work off in sturdy cardboard boxes for reading
in less frantic places, like the AutoTrain to Florida and the mountains
of northeastern Pennsylvania.
Now the hard part will be picking a representative and compelling
sampling from the submissions and then managing to squeeze them into
One of the rewards for all of us will be the Summer Fiction reception,
Thursday, August 8, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble in MarketFair.
The guests of honor will be all the writers who submitted work, whether
it was selected for publication or not. We hope you will mark your
calendars now, and join all of us who appreciate the written word
and the writing process.
From the Readers
I read with interest the article titled "Flavors
Fill the Sail, the Passage is to India" (U.S. 1, May 8). The article
by Patrick Mooney is very good and informative, especially for someone
who is looking for good Indian restaurant in the area as in my case.
However I just want to draw your attention to a small flaw (which
was like a grain of under-cooked fenugreek in an otherwise tasty curry-sauce
or pickle) in the following line. I am sending this basically for
you to look for a way to avoid this type of small error:
"Like any large country, menus vary from north to south and east
to west — the food of Goa is different from that served in Madras,
which is different from the specialties of Tamil Nadu."
Actually Madras is a city in the state of Tamilnadu; so it is like
saying that "the food of California is different from that served
in Trenton, which is different from the specialties of New Jersey"
Of course not too long back Madras was renamed as Chennai and I can
understand if someone not familiar with the most recent history and
geography cannot really find enough correct information in standard

Thanks for Celebrating Idyllic Places
Once upon a time we took for granted that we could pack
up the car and drive a couple of miles and find ourselves in some
idyllic place. Carolyn Edelmann’s impressionistic, readable, and scholarly
pieces about New Jersey’s natural beauty and preserved sites demonstrate
that we can do just that! I am enthralled with her work.
We must all recognize that this environment was carved out of the
landscape by forward thinking citizens and legislators. Let’s all
support open space, Green Acres, clean air, clean water! Once the
land is developed you can’t go back!
