First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros


For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro, I'm featuring an intro from an eGalley I'm planning on starting soon. 
 
(W.W. Norton)

"It was a stricken love, but still love. It was the kind of love that gazed up at you from the bare white-flood of your headlights -- a wide-eyed love with the meekness of grass eaters Soft fur, pink tongue, and if you got too close a whiff of mulch on the breath. This was the love she cherished for her husband .

The love had other moments. Of course it did. But its everyday form was vegetarian."


What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  8. Ooo, I sense a challenge with this group! How about if you could hear the audio version of, say, the first 5 or so minutes? I'm just prepping the clip as a teaser today, and if any of you would be interested, will gladly come back and post it...see if it makes a difference.
