Tuesday Intros // Greener Pastures

Tuesday Intros: Greener Pastures by Michael Wehunt

Hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea, Tuesday Intros shares the first paragraph of a book I’m currently reading, which at the moment, is Greener Pastures by Michael Wehunt, a really great spooky read with really vivid imagery.

Sissa died last year, just shy of our hundred and thirtieth birthday. I ain’t talked much to folks since, excepting Mr. Pearl. Me and Sissa was both childless. But I’ve shook it off and traveled such a long way at my brittle age. I’ve come home to this nameless mountain pouring blood from its bowel.

TheĀ second I read this paragraph, I was hooked. It’s so damn visceral with that last line, a mountain pouring blood. The short story this paragraph is from, Beside Me Singing in the Wilderness, is amazing.

What do you think? Would this paragraph hook you? What have y’all been reading?
