I haven’t done a book beginning post in a long time. But I started reading an interesting book by an author that is new to me and in a genre that I am not very accustomed to. So good reasons to share its beginning.
The book is “Started early, took my dog” by Kate Atkinson, a writer who was recommended to me by Elena from Books and Reviews. I am not 100% certain I like the style which is evident already in the first few lines.
1975: 9 April
Leeds: “Motorway City of the Seventies”. A proud slogan. No irony intended. Gaslight still flickering on some streets. Life in a northern town.
