Book Beginnings: Aiding and Abetting

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.

Aiding and Abetting by Muriel Spark

"The receptionist looked tinier than ever as she showed the tall, tall, Englishman into the studio of Dr. Hildegard Wolf, the psychiatrist who had come from Bavaria, then Prague, Dresden, Avila, Marseilles, then London, and now settled in Paris."

This new patient will throw a wrench into Dr. Wolf's life, and he has an interesting story of his own, too.

I'm wondering why that psychiatrist moved around so much! The book's cover drew me in -- What do the headlines on those newspapers say? Do the two men know each other or are they strangers? I'm definitely intrigued.
