Hetty Mulder is not a name many Americans will know, as she writes in Dutch and has never appeared, to my knowledge, in the major English-language journals. But Ontsnapt aan opsmuk (self-published, 2010) is an attractive, hand-bound chapbook that came to us with English translations hand-scribed by the author on facing pages, and it seemed a good opportunity to explore what is being written primarily for the European haiku community.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
