Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. This week's selection is a book that has been on my shelf since 2009. The1st paragraph has me wanting more ---- what do you think?
In This Way I Was Saved; Brian DeLeeuw
I ENTER THE LOBBY of Claire Nightingale's apartment building, here to tell her I have murdered her only son. As always, the marble foyer is hushed and dim, almost sepulchral, and, as always, two doormen stand watch over the evening shift. The one who opens the door for me is named Victor. He recognizes my face--of course he does, he's worked here for years--and he says, "They starving you at college? I can see your ribs, buddy."
