The Book Remembers Everything: "In her Living Locally series, Van Horn celebrates the landscape, culture, and community of her adopted home in rural Tipperary, Ireland. Collecting, documenting, and illustrating the regional language of the area, Van Horn both acknowledges her position as a kind of outsider (a 'blow in,' in the local slang, referring to 'anyone who moves here from somewhere else') and locates herself firmly within the community."
In No. 29 of the series Van Horn talks about the different people she meets on several bus trips as she goes about her normal activities around the Irish countryside. She writes of language, landscape, and personalities.
