creative writing idea by nicole krauss: unconventional start

The second point while reading "The History of Love" by Nicole Krauss: the very first sentence on the very first page should be eccentric / unconventional / unusual / uncommon.
What is the first sentence? 'When they write my obituary.' Period.
How do you like such an opening?


  1. Jacob,
    so what? What are u telling us? Not-eccentric start - not good?

  2. Rosa, this is my personal experience: ALL famous novels have very uncommon starts.
