Opening Sentence of the Day: Clown Girl
"Balloon Tying for Christ was the cheapest balloon manual I could find."
-- Clown Girl by Monica Drake (Independent Publishers Book Award winner; introduction by Chuck Palahniuk)
Hawthorne Books & Literary Arts sent this one to me. I don't know if I would have picked it myself, and it has more of an an edge to it than I am really comfortable with, but it is incredibly clever and pretty funny.
Hawthorne is a Portland-based, independent publisher specializing in literary fiction and narrative non-fiction.
