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. Care to join us? This week's pick seems like a good summer read to me.
The Story Hour; Thrity Umrigar
August - 2014 - Harper
" Dear Shilpa --I writes. Belief me when I say not single day pass in six years that I not thought of you. How are you, my dearest?
Then I takes the paper, roll it like a ball of dough and throws it across the room. It land on top of the coffee table--why he call it a coffee table when in this house we only drink chai?--and I goes to pick it up to place in the dustbin. Shilpa never reading my note. He will never posting to her. Some things even stupids like me know."
What do you think? Would you read more? For me the poor English was hard to read, but knowing this author's talent, I am pretty sure this will be a winner.
Care to join us this week? Feel free to post the Intro from one of your reads and link below.
