Opening Sentence: Greene on Capri



On a December morning of the late 1960s, I was sitting by the windows of the Gran Caffé in the piazzetta of Capri, doing the crossword in The Times.
-- Greene on Capri: A Memoir by Shirley Hazzard.

Like just about everyone, I love the idea of Capri -- fostered by a short college-days visit. And I love Graham Greene's books.  I don't know why, then, it has taken me so long to get around to reading Hazzard's memoir, which has been on my TBR shelf for about ten years.

This is so getting me in the mood for the Graham Greene Challenge, hosted by  Carrie at Books and Movies.
