My book beginnings is taken from LOVE AND OTHER CONSOLATION PRIZES by Jamie Ford:

"Ernst Young stood outside the gates on opening day of the new world's fair, loitering in the shadow of the future.  From his lonely vantage point in the VIP parking lot, he could see hundreds of happy people inside, virtually every name in Seattle's Social Blue Book, wearing their Sunday best on a cool Saturday afternoon."

    1. Have you read his second book too? It is SONGS OF WILLOW FROST. Excellent as always but sad.

      I LOVED Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet too.

      The Space Between Words paired two horrific historical events...it was very good.

      Thanks for commenting, Literary Feline.
