Book Beginnings: The Free World

Alec Krasnansky stood on the platform of Vienna’s Western Terminal while, all around him, the reperesentatives of Soviet Jewry–from Tallinn to Tashkent–roiled, snarled, and elbowed to deposit their belongings onto the waiting train.
The Free World by David Bezmozgis

Not too bad of a beginning, I think 🙂


Book Beginnings is a weekly meme, hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages.
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you’re reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be at A Few More Pages every Friday.

    It is a very tense beginning to the book but what is the title and who is the author?

      Sorry about that! I’ve added to the post that it’s The Free World by David Bezmozgis. Parts have been tense, but not unpleasantly so :o)
