This is my favorite first line of a chapter I've read in a long time:
"My marriage ended the way these things do, with paramedics and cheesecake."
The New York Times has excerpted a chapter. They went with Chapter 1. (I woulda gone with Chapter 3, about marriage and cheesecake.)
If you know me, it's probably safe to go ahead and buy this -- highly likely it will end up in Ace Book Club within the next year.
