Book Beginnings: Diamond in the Rough

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.

Diamond in the Rough: A Memoir by Shawn Colvin

"Who doesn't have a bit of pyromania in them?"

Anyone familiar with Ms. Colvin's songs immediately gets the reference here to "Sunny Comes Home," but she's actually talking about her childhood and when she accidentally set the yard on fire.

That's a terrific beginning that makes me want to know more. Sounds like an entertaining story.

I don't usually read memoirs, but this sounds like a good one.

THANKS for sharing, and enjoy your weekend. I hope you are in a warm climate. It is freezing in Pittsburgh.
