Book beginnings on Friday


Today’s book beginning is from a book by Ernest Hemingway that is on my reading list for the very near future, “Men without women”. The beginning  is from the first story called “The Undefeated”.

Manuel Garcia climbed the stairs to Don Miguel Retana’s office. He set down his suitcase and knocked on the door. There was no answer. Manuel, standing in the hallway felt there was someone in the room. He felt it through the door.

I haven’t read on and I don’t know what the story is about. I like the beginning.

  1. That is an intriguing beginning. It’s weird when you can just tell someone is in a room without seeing them!

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
