Opening Sentence of the Day: Brazzaville Beach



"I never really warmed to Clovis -- he was far too stupid to inspire real affection -- but he always claimed a corner of my heart, largely, I suppose, because of the way he instinctively and unconsciously cupped his genitals whenever he was alarmed or nervous."

-- Brazzaville Beach by William Boyd.

My! That one got my attention.

This won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. William Boyd is one of my favorites.
