Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon.
Watching Edie; Camilla Way
(NAL) New American Library - 2016
Outside my kitchen window the long afternoon empties of light. I look at London stretched out far below, my dripping hands held poised above the sink. The doorbell rings, one long high peal; The broken intercom vibrates. The view from up here, it's incredible, as if you're flying. Deptford and Greenwich, New Cross and Erith, then the river, and beyond that there's the Gherkin, over there the Shard. From my top floor flat here on Telegraph Hill, you can see forever and as usual it calms me, soothes me: how big it is, how small I am, how far from where I used to be.
The doorbell rings more urgently--whoever it is is putting their finger on the buzzer and holding it there. The night hovers.
What do you think -- keep reading or pass?
