Linden and Buckskin is a portfolio of work by Maxwell Suzuki(he/him) that aims to present life in its most critical stages. Maxwell is a writer, poet, visual artist, and photographer who lives in Los Angeles. He is currently writing a novel on the generational disconnect of Japanese American immigrants and their children. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Anti-Heroin Chic, Kissing Dynamite Poetry, The Hellebore, Woven Tale Press, and elsewhere.
Linden and Buckskin refers to the abandoned crossroads of his hometown where imagination, creation, love, desire, and loss remain. While Linden and Buckskin does not physically exist anymore, this virtual space acts as Maxwell's own abandoned intersection.
