Today’s first lines are from Home Body written by John Thorne and illustrated by Russell Christian:
From the first “chapter,” “The Keyhole”:
“At the head of the corridor, a closed door led to other corridors, unfurnished rooms, stairways and attics. The chill of unknown things entered through the door’s keyhole.” (Golfredo Parise Abecedary)
” On my way from here to there, young and broke, I arrange to spend the night with a friend at his Manhattan apartment…My friend is not at home. “
This is a delightful read with exquisite sketches and original word choice, word-images, and phrasing. I find myself reading some parts again and again. I definitely will want to keep this book.
