Abstract

thumb over his shoulder. HE TOLD ME THEY LIVED next door. He stood pressing against the split-rail fence that separated our yards and pointed his "They're in there," he said. "Every one of them." Of course I didn't believe him. BUIy Matoone was the weirdest kid I knew, the weirdest kid anyone I knew knew. Billy Matoone was weird, but he was also beautiful. Even I, another fourteen-year-old boy, could his face was smooth, whiskerless. His love of cream pies made him round, but this added to his beauty. He made other mothers think of the Vienna Boys Choir, the movie-version von Trapps, any kid who One day in the spring, my mother had sighed with great reUef--a doc- see that. He had what my mother called bedroom eyes, big blue ones with ridiculously long lashes. Though he was closer to fifteen than I, lived in the Alps and wore lederhosen and could sing in a clear, high voice, which was another talent of Billy's. tor had finally been able to tell the Matoones what exactly was wrong with BiUy. This after years of him sitting in psychologists' offices, changing schools, spending summers at camps in remote places
