Great opening paragraph 62… ‘The Impressionist’ #amwriting #FirstPara

Hari Kunzru“One afternoon, three years after the beginning of the new century, red dust which was once rich mountain soil quivers in the air. It falls on a rider who is making slow progress through the ravines which score the plains south of the mountains, drying his throat, filming his clothes, clogging the pores of his pink perspiring English face.”
