Book Beginnings: Terms of Endearment


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Terms of Endearment by Larry McMurtry

"The success of a marriage invariably depends on the woman," Mrs. Greenway said.

Wow, I'm very glad attitudes have changed, and I really hope Mr. McMurtry was being sarcastic when he wrote this (Aurora Greenway is a fairly ridiculous character so you're not supposed to take what she says too seriously, I hope.)
