Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

The Mrs. Bland mentioned in "Ad Astra" probably doesn't exist. Bland has apparently invented an imaginary wife for his own neurotic reasons. The narrator reports "when [Bland] was tight he would talk about his wife, though we all knew that he was not married" (408). In the story's last line, he refers to her as his "poor little wife" (429).
