Sample text

It was only Barry trying to extricate himself, like a cat with a claw stuck in a drape. Barry set his pail down and asked Everett, “What do you think of all those antlers back in camp? I’ve been wondering: what if deer owned the place? Would they hang up a bunch of human skeletons? I mean, what do you think about somebody who needs to display so many antlers? I mean, I’m not like that. I ran over a mouse with a lawnmower once and it made me sick. The bone fragments were flying and I had to stop mowing.

As you must already know, I’m incapable of recording truth as my father did. To capture a child’s face numb from terror. To let the shrubs behind that child fade off into the background while the child’s eyes demand to be looked into. My father often said that reality was worse than whatever he could capture in a still image.

He drew away slowly, taking a step toward the spot where the deer stood, as if he could walk through an apparition. His memories dropped over him—memories of himself and the woman he had known since they were children.
