"Did anyone ever remember their childhood with perfect clarity? Jazz wasn't sure, but his own stat-icky and foggy. Billy's lesson's remained, of course. The day he met Howie. What happened to Rusty. But so much else was just.. muddy. A river of images & thoughts & feelings, dirtied & polluted so that no one could drink from it without gagging."
need to double check the words.. i think my quote is incorrect."
