things to know

What do your fictional characters smell like?

One smells like salt fog, like acidic peatbog water, like faint rosin.

Another: bitter orange, deadhead roses, industrial bleach.

And favourite characters in real books that smell like sunlotion in hot cars, like motel rooms, like snow coming in the morning, like bodies half pampered half left to foost.
