I’ve already said that I think the best scene ever is the opening of The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, so I will give you my favourite opening line. Another Eugenides book, this time Middlesex.
I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974
A fantastic book and definitely one to read if you haven’t already done so. I can’t wait for his next novel which I’ve heard is coming soon.
