First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Revision. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
- Grab your current read(s).
- Share the first line(s).
- Include the title and author.
"Beneath the intersection of I-20 and I-75, where stray trash tumbles about carelessly and dreams lay aborted, where Coke cans substitute for ashtrays and discarded, warped, pissy mattresses serve as sleeping quarters for discarded, warped, pissy people—beneath that invisible expanse of earth and sky dwells a man named Lazarus."
