I’m up through Junkyard Dogs, Part II. Wow, talk about backstory and angst!
Young Scotty’s a practical pariah in his family, though he’s probably never noticed, and the man largely responsible can hardly stop hating himself over the boy’s plight long enough to forge a relationship with the introverted youngster.
This is damn fine writing, and a fantastically engrossing take on a character that I had previously thought had been explored to excess. Just great stuff!
