Kensington Library Book Club - "Lost Memory of Skin" by Russell Banks
A young man must create a life following incarceration for a liaison with an underage girl. He is shackled to a GPS monitoring device and forbidden to live within 2,500 feet of where children gather. He lives in a encampment with other convicted sex offenders. In many ways an innocent,he is trapped by impulses and foolish choices. Banks examines the boundaries between our intentions and actions and probes society where zero tolerance erases tolerance.
