The first paragraph of Kringle by Tony Abbott! Superb!!
“Deep in the land of ghosts and frost, back in the days of long ago, in the time before and a little to the left of the time we know now, when goblins roamed the land and rough tribes of men battled for this or that frozen inch of frozen earth, we might, if we turned our heads just so, peek through the eaves of a low-roofed hut, farther north than you or I would care to go, and see inside it a small boy crouched before a cold hearth.”
How many authors can write such a long sentence with this much lyrical flow and eloquence? Looking forward to starting this book sometime today!!!
