A Taste of BTS

I like this:

Then she met Owen, and learned what a dare really meant. The geography of another person, that was where you went blindfolded and raw and in over your head. (30)

And this:

Pair of unfolding kids, they'd been then, and while in a sense he knew each of them from the ground up - Neil who always watched his way as if he were on stilts, Bruce built on springs - Owen worried a bit that they were not ready for Glasgow and Fort Peck. (33)

I really like the way Doig builds his sentences and layers in so many tasty bits. Quite a bit like fine, nuanced cooking, actually.
