Great First Lines

 

I’m a sucker for great first lines. When a writer crafts the perfect first line, it explodes like a firecracker on the page. Here is one of my favorites. It’s from the incredible Prince of Tides by the amazing Pat Conroy.

“My wound is geography, it is also my anchorage, my port of call.”

Do you have a favorite first line of a novel that just sticks with you? If so, what is it?
