Target Practice Trope

Reads like Quixote with its troping on the tale told and its telling: Michael Blouin, I Am Billy the Kid. It’s deliriously delightful:

You won’t find that story in any book that’s been writ except for this one that you’re reading right now and that don’t make it any less true.

which I set beside an earlier passage:

My father was right: it is best to carry a hat, and usually on your head. With a coat on your head there’s just more for people to shoot at that isn’t you.

Hats off to a tour de force.

And so for day 3126
