“Some novelists start with opening lines that foretell the major action of the book; some begin with hints; others with words that simply set a scene or describe a character, showing the reader a world before a deluge—with no hint as to what is to come.

The truth is that people never realize their lives are about to change in unforeseen ways—that’s just the nature of unforeseen ways.”
