Very quiet and perceptive short-story, accompanied with photos of pale Oregonians without their clothes on. Some very long penises in there. The film did the story justice, maybe even more so. Raymond's story ends on a suspension that the film resolves, usefully. Never been to Portland. Made we want to go!
