Lemon Pie

Joyland is new "hub" for short fiction with an interesting concept: six editors are each assigned a major North American city and vet submissions from the area. Here is the opening to "Lemon Pie" by Montrealer Allison McMaster, as picked by David McGimpsey:

"Go cut me a slice of lemon meringue pie. Be quick about it. Don't go rummaging in the cutlery drawer for some dainty dessert fork. I'll just eat it with my hands."
