First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea has started a fun new meme First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from Still Life with Brass Pole by Craig Machen:
Dean is driving the Porsche. In the passenger seat, I am drunk, coked to the gills, stoned and completely at ease. The car belongs to my dad, and so does Dean, figuratively speaking. He is Dad’s lover. Of course, I'm not supposed to know this, so I am having to listen to Dean's smoke screen of make-believe female conquests. And in a bizarre way, Dean's performance, sort of like Jim Jay Bullock doing a Don Johnson impersonation, is making it all that much more fun.
