    Summary

    A decade later, with packed earth under his feet and Bittle sprinting ahead to prevent his dog from rolling in God-knew-what mouldering squirrel carcass or bear scat, he thought maybe he'd succeeded. He loved his life. It was a well-defined life, roomy enough for two well-adjusted people with their well-adjusted pets, buttressed by a well-adjusted system of routines, phone alarms, prescription medications and habits of mind. And now he was contemplating throwing a wrench in.

    Summary

    Somewhere in Massachusetts, a nervous boy will click on a YouTube video entitled "Bad Bob's Best Bouts Vol. 4: 1987, Boston". He'll watch, wide-eyed, as Robert Zimmermann and a man in a Bruins sweater square off and shake out of their gloves, circling each other like dogs.

    "Good lord," the boy will whisper as a blurry video of two large hockey players rolling around on the ice plays on his laptop. He'll watch as the two of them leave smears of blood in their wake, listen as commentators crow about penalty minutes and well-deserved nicknames. He'll tab back to the Wikipedia page of the man his teammates had been talking about, eyes widening as he reads.

    And then he gets to the personal life section.

    But all of that... The boy, the computer, the teammates astounded at the boy's ignorance... All of that comes later. Twenty-seven years later.

    For now it's 1987, and a young actress has just gone to see a hockey game.
