Book Preface and Introduction


Recommended Posts

My wife just started reading a book.   The introduction is a hoot:

 

"You may want to familiarize yourself with the word “misanthrope” before you begin the sordid tale of my employment. Misanthrope, curmudgeon, and b***h, I find, are the terms used most often when I am forced to describe myself, or when I ask those who know me best to do the same. I started out as such a nice girl, but after a decade in retail, this is what I have become. Ten years of insane bosses, corporate false enthusiasm and, the most warping of all, the customers... In short, dear reader, this is all your fault! "

Sometimes the introductions are quite worthwhile.

I had fun with mine, which I've used multiple times.

In part, it reads, "This is a work of fiction.

"If you see someone you recognize in here, it's your own wild imagination.

"If you see yourself in here, it's your own guilty conscience!"

In other words, there are no angels among your characters?

My wife started a book club 20 years ago.  This sounds like it should be on their list.

Otto saw into her soul and posted the spirit of her words rather than the left.
