First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch, author of The Dinner and Summer House with Swimming Pool.  I borrowed this book from the library.

Dear Mr. M,
I'd like to start by telling you that I'm doing better now.  I do so because you probably have no idea that I was ever doing worse.  Much worse, in fact, but I'll get to that later on.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
Having read Koch's previous novels, I am eager to begin his latest work.  Koch's stories thus far have centered on flawed characters motivated by self-interest and a desire to preserve their families at all costs.
