Benny narrates this, and Benny isn’t the greatest of guys. But he’s the kind of guy you probably should like less, but don’t. Here’s a quote: “I arrived in Bozeman after the place that came after Animas, was thinking I would stay forever—thinking I would finally stop what I’ve been doing and be someone, thinking this place was really me.”
Bozeman is going well, sort of, until he goes on a backpacking trip with some friends. The story is structured so that I felt equally sorry for everyone on the trip, and also happy to see Benny get what is coming to him.
There were fun class/income observations also. Nicely done, Shawn Vestal.
