Great Opening Paragraph 96… ‘The Secret History’ #amwriting #FirstPara

Donna Tartt“Does such a thing as ‘the fatal flaw,’ that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn’t. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs.”
‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tartt
