Book Beginnings: Salvage the Bones

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme 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.


Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward

"China's turned on herself."

China is the dog, a pit-bull, and she's giving birth to puppies, so it kind of makes sense, but I also have known dogs to groom themselves to the point of injuring themselves, so that's the image that comes to mind.

That beginning does not tell much but I do like the cover. Here is my Book Beginning at Mixed Book Bag

Looks like this book won the National Book Award, so it must be a good one. I'm intrigued by the opening sentence.
My post today features FLY OR FALL.

I read her newest book: MEN WE REAPED. Haven't read this one.

THANKS for sharing.
