Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two from a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon.
The Hollow Heart; Viola DiGrado
Europa Editions - 2015
"In 2011 the world ended. I killed myself.
On July 23, at 3:29 in the afternoon, my death set out from Catania. Its epicenter was my thin, supine body, my three hundred grams of human heart, my small breasts, my puffy eyes, my brain clubbed senseless, the wrist of my right arm draped over the edge of the tub, the other wrist submerged in a grim mojito of mint bubble bath and blood. "
What do you think -- keep reading or pass?
