First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros; Love May Fail; Matthew Quick


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon.


Love May Fail; Matthew Quick
Harper - 2015

Part One - Portia Kane
Chapter 1

"I'm kneeling in one of my own bedroom closets --peering E.T.-like through the white door slats--when the following epiphany hits me harder than a lawn dart to the eye: I'm a disgraceful woman.

Gloria Steinnem would call me whatever's the feminist equivalent of an Uncle Tom."

What do you think? Keep Reading?

  2. I can't help but wonder why she's peeking through the closet doors. And how does that relate to Uncle Tom? I'd keep reading to find out.

  4. I do want to read more - it is clever how the author paints such a vivid picture in so few words.

  7. I laughed out loud. I could just see E.T. So, to be the feminine equivalent of Uncle Tom, guess you'd have to be betraying your fellow women in some manner. OK, now I need to know why being in a closet peering out is a betrayal. LOL
