Tuesday Intros (Jan 28, 2014)

First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. Share the first paragraph (or a few) of a book you are reading or are thinking about reading.  Link up at Bibliophile by the Sea and check out some other firsts!




I will be sharing the first paragraph from The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.




May in Ayemenem is a hot, brooding month.  The days are long and humid.  The river shrinks and black crows gorge on bright mangoes in still, dustgreen trees.  Red bananas ripen.  Jackfruits burst.  Dissolute bluebottles hum vacuously in the fruity air.  Then they stun themselves against clear windowpanes and die, fatly baffled in the sun.
