Reference notePreface: Shocked by the number of gun shots audible from my home in Troyville, I began recording their frequency in July 2001. By the end of September I found myself aggrieved if a fusillade had not cut the night. It seemed a good time to stop making notes. Judith Mason 2001-2011.

A pair of cotton gloves is included, one with yellow trim and the other with black trim both bearing the title: Troyville.
