08/15/2008 Entry: "Bad (Amazing!) First Sentence"

I was listening to NPR yesterday, and they mentioned a contest for the "worst opening sentence for a novel." Here's the winner.

"Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city, their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped 'Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J.' "

Personally, I think it's awesome! I'd keep reading!

Replies: 2 people have rocked the mic!

I totally agree! What book is it from?
