Whose first line is it anyway?

The List asked authors presenting at the Edinburgh International Book Festival about their favourite opening lines to a novel. I picked one that is very relevant to the theme of Others: how writers can put us into mindsets that we might find it impossible to imagine. You can read the article here.

I’ll be doing an event on Others at the Festival on Weds 21 August, with contributors Will Storr, Marina Warner and Colin Grant. You can find out more and book tickets here.
