Opening Sentence of the Day: The Joy Luck Club
"The old woman remembered a swan she had bought many years ago in Shanghai for a foolish sum."
-- The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.
Amy Tan is one of those authors who is so in my consciousness that I think I have read more of her books than I have. This is probably her most famous, but I am just now getting around to reading it.
