Re: Lost Memory of Skin, Prt. 1, chapters; 1-4
This is my first time reading any Russel Banks work. I'm already enjoying the writing style. Finally got the book yesterday from the library.
I must say this is really out of my comfort zone. Who in their right mind wants to sympathize with a sex offender or pedophile? I am quite narrow minded in that regard. But I have a feeling that I will have some thought processing going on while reading this.
I think that by using the name Kid we the reader will be able to look at him without the hostility that we would normally have.
I am curious to know how long sex offenders have to wear that ankle bracelet. Or as the Kid said being a "legal electronic prisoner".
I'm looking forward to getting to know the other characters that we have met so far. Larry Somerset seems to be the low man on the totem pole as far as offender hierarchy goes.
My guess so far in why the Kid got incarcerated is because he lured a young girl on the internet. That or an undercover cop of sorts. And I don't think this story will have a happy ending.
