Louis Owens tells good stories. I¿m reading _Sharpest Sight_ again and plan to return to _Bone Game thereafter_. I stopped midway through a reread of _Dark River_, Viet Nam remains undigested while a tale of Survivalists infecting the West already feels dated. Magical realism suggests a post-post Anselmic 'fides quarens intellectum'. Life is fuller if we live as though these stories connected us... but meaning is always/already deferred. I am better now.
