Every Tuesday Vicki @ I'd Rather Be at the Beach now hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where readers share the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that they are reading or plan to read soon.
Here's the book that I'm starting today.
An American Marriage; Tayari Jones
Algonquin - February 2018
"There are two kinds of people in the world, those who leave home, and those who don't. I'm a proud member of the first category. My wife, Celestial, used to say that I'm a country boy at the core, but I never cared for that designation. For one, I'm not from the country per se. Elon, Louisiana, is a small town. When you hear country, you think raising crops, baling hay, and milking cows. Never in my life have I picked a single cotton boil, although my daddy did. I have never touched a horse, goat or pig, nor have I any desire to. Celestial used to laugh, clarifying that she's not saying I'm a farmer, just country. She is from Atlanta, and there was a case to be made that she is country, too. But let her tell it, she's a 'southern woman', not to be confused with 'southern belle.' For some reason, 'Georgia Peach' is all right with her, and it's all right with me, so there you have it."
Based on that intro, would you read more or pass?
