Twitter Capsule: Regional impressionism, evoking sibling rivalry and bondedness, inchoate fear of death. Gun, bear detract.

VOR:   Wouldn't call this "new," but always happy for any well-rendered regional milieu, and for a recognizable portrait of childhood. Carbone's follow-up an exciting prospect.
