For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro, I'm featuring an intro to a book by an author I want to read more of. Has anyone read this one?
(originally published in 1948)
(Intro from - A Good Man is Hard to Find)
" THE GRANDMOTHER didn't want to go to Florida. She wanted to visit some of her connections in east Tennessee and she was seizing at every chance to change Bailey's mind. Bailey was the son she lived with, her only boy. He was sitting on the edge of his chair at the table, bent over the orange sports section of the Journal. 'Now look here, Bailey,' she said, 'see here, read this,' and she stood with one hand on her thin hip and the other rattling the newspaper at his bald head. 'Here this fellow that calls himself The Misfit is aloose from the Federal Pen and headed toward Florida and you read here what it says he did to these people. Just you read it. I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. I couldn't answer to my conscience if I did.' "
What do you think of the into? Any Flannery O'Connor fans out there?
