First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Big Ray; Michael Kimball

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.

Big Ray; Michael Kimball
Bloomsbury - 2012

"My father probably died on January 28, 2005, but I wouldn't know he was dead until a few days later when my sister called to tell me.  My father lived alone and nobody else knew he was already dead either.

**

January 29, 2005, would have been my mother and father's forty-fifth wedding anniversary--if my father hadn't died the day before, if my mother hadn't divorced him ten years before that."
