About Anne Landsman

Anne LandsmanALTHOUGH I grew up in Worcester, a small South African town in the shadow of the Brandwacht mountains, that wasn’t the real me. The real me was best friends with Petunia, the North American goose who left her gooseprints in deep snow; Scuffy, the tugboat, who bumped up against logs and loggers as he floated down an East Coast river; and Madeleine, the little girl who lived right near the amazing Eiffel Tower. The South African skies, the mountains, the endless varieties of indigenous plants – all these things were intensely present in my life as a child and also entirely absent from the world of my imagination, where I lived.
