Author: Jeffrey Eugenides

Rating: ****

First Sentence:
"I was born twice: first as a baby girl on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960: and then again as a teenage boy in an emergency room near Petrosky, Michigan in August of 1964."

Hooked or Not Hooked:
Hook, line and sinker

My two cents:
This is brilliant writing. Metaphorically speaking, haven't we all been born twice? Hmmm...
